Tuesday, January 03, 2012      3 comments

That is a quote from Michael Pollan's book In Defense of Food. It seems like good advice, doesn't it? I am only in the first couple of chapters and it really has answered some questions that I have had about why do we need to have so much inform... Read more

Well, I finished week 2 and it is nothing to brag about. I did that workout using the Nike Training Club app and my muscles hurt for two days afterwards, so I ended taking a rest day on my run day and then another rest day on the cross training ... Read more

This is a free app on iTunes and so far, I think it is a great app. My hubby bought me an I Pod touch for the holiday and this is one of the apps as to why I wanted one. I think this is going to be a well used app for me. So, far I have on... Read more

My run went well. I was feeling good and had to remind myself that I am using the run/walk technique and it took an effort to walk, but I am glad I did because I felt like I finished the run strong. I have a tendency to start out too fast and ge... Read more

I did it! I registered for a half marathon to be run on April 28, 2012. It feels wierd for me, because of the distance - half marathon. Does this mean I am a runner?! I have done several 5k this summer and was thinking of doing a 10k this s... Read more

I just read a post about someone who took a detour on losing weight because "life happens". This got me thinking about how many times I have used that as an excuse to eat poorly, not exercise and become downright lazy about doing the things I ne... Read more

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

Yesterday was Thanksgiving Day and I started it with a Turkey Run 5k, a charity run for the Shriner's Hospital for Children. Then for our dinner, I prepared a nontraditional meal. I decided to do a Fall Harvest Theme rather than the Turkey Dinne... Read more
