Okay my last post seems to have gone missing. We had to buy my son a new vehicle. His ford ranger 2 wheel drive pick up just wasn't safe. He slid in to a guard rail second accident in a month. The really freaky thing is just today a Ford ranger pickup(just like my son's) went off an over pass and crashed to the ground about 20 feet below. Luckily the driver was not seriously hurt. This was in the same section of freeway that my son travels to get home from college. Gives me the chills. Or they might be from the fact we had our second very cold day in a row. Although we did make it all the way to 4 above zero today.

Up to Day 36 of my streak with 5 miles. Spent the weekend with my boyfriend since kids were with their dad. He did not want me to end my streak because I was at his house and roads were to icy to run on. We went to local school Saturday and power walked 1.2 miles. love that he supports what I do (and I him).

So, today I had to stay inside. We were supposed to get a dusting to 1 inch of snow during the day with 8-14 overnight tonight. We had 5 inches by noon! Sheesh. Kick-boxing, stationary bike and shoveling were my exercise for the day.......probably be close to the same tomorrow.

Have a marvelous Friday Rooks

Just to wrap up...I finished.....I did the whole month of December

Day 29 - 1.12
Day 30 - 2.7
Day 31 - 2.4

And well today it just didn't feel right if I skipped a run. Soooo......

Day 32 - 2.16 miles!!!! Feeling quite proud that I stuck with it.

Hope everyone had a wonderful start to the New Year. I am hoping 2014 is as great as what 2013 was :)

HI KIRSTEN !!!!!!!!!!!!

Hi all!!!

I sure enjoyed seeing all the wedding pictures on FB this weekend. I miss you all SO crazy much. It's been a tough year. I know, I keep saying that and then dropping off the thread. It's just been so hard finding anything positive to say. I just want to tell you that having even the IDEA of you all still here on this thread and knowing that, eventually, once I get my stuff together I could come back and join in the fun again has been so reassuring.

So, finally, I come to you with something positive to say - I RAN yesterday! TWO MILES!
emoticon

Good luck tomorrow Anne and Bobby.
Doris I hope you feel better soon.
Carrie, can I come visit when I finish school? Philly sounds amazing. My nephew lives there too, btw.
Judi, 9 miles? AMAZING!!! Gooooooo!
Nera, can't wait to see all the great quilts you'll come up with.
Monty, great job on all the hard work
Trish, I've thought so much about you this Christmas. Love and hugs to you and your family.
Rebecca, way to streak!

K, that's as far back as I go right now. HUGE Spark love to you all. Happy New Year!

No worries, Mon, I'm focusing on our Running Club New Year Eve Party! This will be the best! Yes, there will be portion controlled "beverages of choice'" & great food. Everything I'm cooking up is healthy so that's good! But it's good to get together with those of the same healthy lifestyle! I so love life today and can't wait for tomorrow!

A good run this morning. I ran/walked for about 3 miles. Only slipped on the ice once, I wasn't paying attention to my footing. I ought to know better!
Happy running Rooks:)

Rebecca - you have soooo got this. Good for you for continuing your streak all month.

Nera, I didn't get any fitness gear this year either, but I did get the nasty bug. Still recovering.

Doris, hope that toe is better. Too bad about the lack of sailing. I hope your hubby heals quickly.

Trish, you'll be able to do Spark videos on your new tv! Glad you got back safe and sound.

Marty, it sounds like you've been quite busy. Enjoy those runs in the cooler air.

I've been busy trying to get my bike goal completed for the year. I have nine miles to go and two days to get er done!

Got my 8 hours and went to brunch with D, did a 'lil shopping, came home, started doing research on Triathlon wetsuits and then started shopping online for one! I do believe I'm having allergy reactions. I'm attacking it now. I ain't got time for that silliness!

Hey everyone!
We are back from Vancouver Island, Christmas was fun, and the kidlets got spoiled by me:)

Going to put on my Sparktracker tomorrow - must get moving ASAP as my back is getting the brunt of my non-activity. One day at a time right?

Time to go set-up my TV the kidlets bought for me (yep, I got spoiled too)...not sure if I am smart enough to deal with a Smart TV!!!
Hugs and love,
Trish

No exercise today. Pancakes and bacon for breakfast, cookies for lunch, chicken with mac-n-cheese for dinner. Blech. My stomach feels heavy......wonder why?! Anyway, on the boat until Monday then probably no more overnights until DH can crawl into the bed after his surgery. We are sad about as its fun to live downtown in a small city!

Well, D & I worked a fun race this morning at Clearwater Beach! We always enjoy working for Suzanne & Michael. They do everything they can to create fun races for all of us in the Tampa Bay area. It's a joy to serve. We're home now kicking back then will do dinner with Jen (my run partner) & Rob, the leaders of Dunedin Running Club! It's a bit overcast but this is Paradise, Baby, and I was on the beach all morning!

Woke up after a night with my Run Club, and found D had gone in a walkabout to Honeymoon Island. She called me to pick her up after a token 15K! Brava!

I picked her up and it was off to brunch at British Delicious, a quaint cozy 'lil cafe in a Cape Cod style house! Took our time and just relaxed then came home to continue a lazy day!

Spent the best day of the Holidays with our Gianna! We picked her up , went to Brunch, came home, unwrapped gifts left for her from Santa, played board games in the afternoon while watching Despicable Me 2, Mommy came and picked her up, I went to Run Club, had a good slow 5K, socialized with my dear teammates, then came home and counted my blessings with D!

Sounds like folks had a wonderful Christmas. I did as well. Christmas Eve was spent with siblings and their families. Good times with the munchkins Christmas morning watching them open their presents. They played quietly while I got my run on...Day 25 done!!! Sent kids off with their dad and I went to BF's family dinner and then to my crazy cousins. It was a wonderful, wonderful day. Now trying to get on that treadmill before the kids get home.

I've spent a great Christmas Eve Dinner with D, all day today at home with her, got a great call from Gianna (who is excited about spending the day with us tomorrow) and spoke to my Sister-in-Law earlier today and my Son in Maine this evening. My Sis and I have had a few good conversations today as well. I have to be thankful and blessed for what I have.

I was on a quest for a certain "Heartbreaker Bow" for Gianna. Toys R Us told me they would get another delivery on Sunday night. D kicked me outta bed at 5:30am, I called them they had it, and I was home by 6:15!

I also want to get this one game so we can play it with her at our house. I think we're just as excited as she is about it!

Once again, if you want something bad enough, you will do what it takes! I also take the "Grandparents Code" to heart! D & I have the best time with Gianna! It's good to be young at heart and body!

Got up after a good 8 hours sleep, had a banana, and went on a 8K walkabout with D! It's a glorious day by the beach today!

We stopped at Lulu's Beach House, in Palm Harbor, for a healthy Brunch then made it to our finish line at home!

Felt really good after and insured that I cooled down and stretched out! Focusing on the Clearwater Halfathon, if I'm feeling right, I'm going for a PB minimally. The two bridges might try to stop me from a PR....we'll see!

I'm embracing the fact that I won't do a race until Jan 19, the Clearwater Halfathon. I want to be rested and as close to 100% as possible. So, today, D & I went out to breakfast finished Santa's duties for Gianna, then came home and chilled for a change!

Trish, I wish nothing but good things for you and kids the Christmas season and for the new year.

So, I am confused. Today, the first official day of winter, was 50 degrees. I was outside carrying diesel jerry cans around in short sleeves. Tomorrow I will need a jacket and hat and mittens. No wonder people are getting sick!

Trish hugs for you and your family.

Cleaned the bathroom cabinet tonight. Found stuff that expired in 2005. LOL!!!

Hubby went out to get new cell phones. Our contract isn't up and will cost about $500 to do the change over but hey my opinion wasn't asked for. Well technically it was but he had no intention of listening to it. Sigh!!!!

Next few days will be a challenge getting my runs in. I may have to get up uber early to run tomorrow morning as there will be no time at all in the evening. Girls night out tomorrow for our annual Christmas ornament exchange. dinner reservations aren't until 815 so we won't be done until 1030 or so. I used to regularly get up at 0430 to run so I can do it. Day 18 is in the books with just a mile but a mile nonetheless.

Hey Doris! Check out the KT Tape site! This is the best way to explain it.The videos show yohot to tape effectively.
www.kttape.com/
That stuff has helped me through a lot of races from 5Ks to Halfs! I've run, (carefully) taped properly, with mild calf strains, tight Achilles, and slight hamstring problems. People can debate all they want to on the validity but I've proved it's worth!

Since I would be doing some serious party batch cooking, I spoke to our run tribe leaders. They decided to quarantine my house and go bar crawling in Downtown Dunedin instead!
emoticon
I'm making a point to have a "soiree" (or is that melee?) in January as makeup!

Woke up this morning with a very rough voice! Gonna keep it on the down low today! Eating healthy, drinking tea, and doing EmergenC shooters! (Did you know..there were 12 flavors of the original formula?)

Wow, I'm jonesin' to run!

I'm still doing light strength training and drowning in H2O! I wanna get better so I can go to a Holiday Party tomorrow night! Light snacking, no alcohol!

So I had only planned a quick 1 mile last night and maybe even walking it, but the intervals I was doing felt good so I did 2.5 miles before I had to get my daughter to basketball practice. Day 17 done!! I am now on a mission to make sure I complete this December streak (and maybe keep going). Thanks for the encouragement. Seeing how a lot of folks on here are running in much much colder weather than NJ helps keep me going. Plus I am doing 97% inside on treadmill since I have young children. Keep up all the good work out there!!!

Yep, we are still on the boat. We will be there until DH has his shoulder surgery in January. The only reason we will leave is that he will not be able to get into the bed with only one arm. We have to crawl in from the foot. Well, not really crawl, but get in from the foot.
Today I was intending to go out for a run but it was -9 F when I was ready to go (too cold) and now, its snowing, again. Sigh. No room to run on the boat! So, finished my Christmas shopping.

rebecca - your doing great on your streak, really rocking!! well done

doris- he may drive you nuts after weeks of no driving but then again you can drive to get away from him. u guys still on the boat?

Judi- 100 miles is a drop in the can you can do it!

monty- great job on the half and another next month. love my CW-X too so comfy. careful of that calf that was my down fall 3 yrs ago and i am still fighting it today, i kept pushing even if it was a little sore, i would favor it then hurt the other one..... i have learned now since i have been out of running almost 3 yrs

did a Jingle dash 5k on saturday, dressed up as an elf. nice small race and i ran 30:47 so pretty consistent with my thanksgiving race (same flat course 30:30) calf feels pretty good, next race is new years eve, hill course so it will be slow

be safe rookies

KT Tape is a beautiful thing....so are my CW-X long compression pants! They got me through the Holiday Halfathon despite my stupidity (warmup & stretch before every run!) and slight calf sprain! Now, I'm being a good boy until my Clearwater Halfathon on Jan 19....

This is the 2013 January Half where I fought the Clearwater Memorial Bridge, got TKO'ed, went to 2 months of PT, and came out a Pace Method runner! Now, I'm hoping to at least PB if I can run 100%. We'll see! I'm volunteering at several races in this recovery time!

Day 14 and 15 complete with just a mile each. Streak is still alive. Felt pretty cruddy yesterday, I think from doing so much around the house that my body just didn't want to run 3 miles. Hopefully today will be better.

Happy Monday!!!!

No run or walk today. Instead, I shoveled snow. DH has a torn rotator cuff so he is not allowed to shovel. He won't be able to shovel snow until next winter........sigh. So, it was up to me. My arms are tired. At least it was warmer out than it has been. It felt almost balmy at 25 degrees:)
Happy running rooks

I love KT Tape (Pink)!

Up at 4:45am and out the door to my Half. D had her knees acting up & I had my slight calf strain. I embraced the fact that I would have a very slow time and had fun at this Half. I walked with D through 7 miles than did a slow jog ahead, hoping she would do her speed. She got caught walking with a couple of walkers who were no match for turtles!
So much for a good thought. I couldn't believe all my run mates who were giving me shout outs. Gonna heal up for next month's Clearwater Halfathon!

Checking in.

Rebecca - great job on your run streak!

Monty - sorry to hear about your mom, but I'm glad to hear that you and your sister have a strengthening relationship.

Nera, hope you are feeling better.

Doris, I'm ready for summer already too. We've had a horrible cold start, and so much more to go.

I'm still biking instead of running, but now my biking goal is under 100 miles to completion. I can hardly wait to get back out there for a run again, but I really want to get this bike goal first.

The weather outside is frightful, but the diesel heater is delightful:) Let it snow, let it snow. Blech. I am ready for summer already!

I thought my schedule was jam packed last night with having to have two kids two different places at the same time. I was wrong since I messed up the day my son was to go to scouts for s service project...it was the day before :( It's been a rough week with all the kids have going on, can't wait until January when my daughter has practices for two sports. Sooooooo I did take the opportunity to run home and get my 1.0 mile in for the day and complete Day 12 of the streak. I will finish this!!!!!

So, the diesel heater is fixed but the battery used to run it has issues. We are using the kerosene heater and all is well. We are toasty (80ish F/26C) as the low setting is pretty high!
DH has his shoulder surgery scheduled for Jan 7th, then he will be home with no driving for 12 weeks. I feel really bad that he has to go through this but better now than in May and good thing its his right shoulder and he's left handed. Phew.
Hope all are well.

Day 11 and 3.4 miles yesterday. Today may be a challenge with a lot of kids activities after work but I will do at least one mile. I need to with all of these holiday celebrations at work.
