  • It was Hell

    8/30/2015 4:16:52 PM, by CDCSMITH2013

    Glad I did it though. My friend/former boss was there and thanked me. I guess a lot of these cross fit routines are based on heroes. Today's was based on a fire fighter work out and the 15 in it was because TJ died in the year 2015. Before the routine started, the organizer gave a speech about g... Read more

  • So I did a virtual 5K and tomorrow I die

    8/29/2015 6:32:28 PM, by CDCSMITH2013

    I know that by donating directly to the fund, more money would go to the fund. I know. But see, I saw an add for something called virtual strides last week. I clicked. There is this one that had a cool name - The Quest for the Golden Pearl. It's got a pretty medal. Pretty in the way a 4 year o... Read more

  • Choices (nothing deep here friends)

    8/28/2015 8:43:06 AM, by CDCSMITH2013

    I'd planned on running "the loop" yesterday after work. My husband said he wanted to go too. By want, what he really meant is that he has to do something to get back into the exercise swing and since I was running, he might as well go too. In his defense, by the time he gets home, eats a litt... Read more

  • 5K history and goals

    8/25/2015 12:43:09 PM, by CDCSMITH2013

    I LOATHE running. Really. I have never gotten that runner's high some people talk about. The closest I've come to it is when it is done and I'm hyperventilating while I pour water into me or on me - sometimes both, and I'm just so thrilled to be DONE. But I decided to give it a shot anyway. ... Read more

  • A quick thank you

    8/21/2015 1:42:27 PM, by CDCSMITH2013

    I just wanted to take a minute and thank those of you who have commented on my recent blogs. Things will work out one way or another with the boy/college/apartment stuff. Somehow, it always does. His depression (if that is what it is) - all I can do is remind him that there are options out there ... Read more

  • Parenting - the first 50 years are the hardest

    8/19/2015 10:52:13 AM, by CDCSMITH2013

    At least that is what my father hopes. That is one of his quotes. He bumps up that number every time I reach it. His other famous quote is, "I hate kids, especially my own." There were few things I knew with certainty when I was a kid, but I knew absolutely, I wanted to be a mom. Of cours... Read more

  • The seal picture

    8/17/2015 9:11:02 AM, by CDCSMITH2013

    This was just taken with my phone. The seals weren't out very far in the water and there were just tons of them. Taken at Coast Guard Beach (Cape Cod National Seashore).... Read more

  • I decided not to be a grown-up today

    8/14/2015 8:28:02 PM, by CDCSMITH2013

    Okay, I sort of did grown-up stuff. I got up at ungodly hour which is normal for me on a Friday, but I did this all this work week. Ungodly hour translates to 3:00am. I went to the gym and to work, but I left work 4 hours early. Why? Because the town library was doing their grand finale for the... Read more

  • The tweaked plan

    8/13/2015 5:01:56 AM, by CDCSMITH2013

    My new plan is very ambitious. I knew that when I made it. I don't leave a lot of spare time in my life. I'm a planner by nature (and it's my day job), so it fits into my personality type. I think I am not so much changing the plan itself. As I looked at it, I had broken it up into sections (no... Read more

  • Getting caught up

    8/3/2015 7:15:23 PM, by CDCSMITH2013

    I tried to jump a little bit ahead of the goals for today. The wake is tomorrow and the funeral Wednesday. I also have to pick up my parents from the airport Wednesday night. They've been visiting my sister in Montana. Thursday should be back to normal. Still learning how to feed my husband, bu... Read more
