Can I do a Half Marathon?

Sunday, November 27, 2011      7 comments

I set a goal to do a 10k next year, but as I was looking for local races I happened to see one that is close by where I live is going to have pacers for the marathon. And they had just my pace. I think a marathon would be too much for me at this... Read more

Friday, November 11, 2011      4 comments

To be truthful, I do not even want to know. This past week I have finally refocused and I am eating much better than I did ever since the "I know you don't like sweets, but I bought you these two donuts", and Halloween (we bought too much candy ... Read more
