Kathy, great time! And you did great beating such a tall person!!! I'm impressed!

The choices you make today will determine the path that your life will take.

Some people try to turn back their odometers. Not me, I want people to know 'why' I look this way. I've traveled a long way and some of the roads weren't paved.

Before the race


After the race - (Thankfully I had about 5 minutes to recover before pic was taken)

Tim is 50, Nancy is 71. Tim is Nancy's son she was so happy that he ran in the same race with her. Of course he ran the 5k in just over 19 minutes. So he greeted us at the finish line. Nancy is the one that got me into trail running. She inspires me. I hope I am still going at 71.

On the podium for age group 60-65, The bronze medalist didn't hang around for the award ceremony. (I always feel good after a race where I beat someone with long legs, the boxes we are standing on are about 6 inches different in height. So you can see how tall she the silver medalist was. She might have overtaken me but she took a tumble about a half mile from the finish line. However I might have had some reserve in the legs if she tried to pass me but we will never know now. The silver medalist was on my heels almost all the way to the finish line,

My Idaho senior game results

Good enough for gold in my age group. Finished 2nd overall in the women, a 50 year old beat me. emoticon

Did not qualify for nationals had to run it in 27:22.
But I feel good about finishing under 30 minutes.

This smoke in the air is messing with my running. Oh well it is what it is.

Tomorrow I will try and qualify for the 2017 senior games which will be held in Birmingham.
I have to run 9 minute miles for 3 miles. Never ran that fast in my life. Even if I don't qualify I hope to take the Idaho Gold medal in my age group.

Hope things are calming down for you Barb.

Christina nice project I used to like to do the refinishing but it has been a long time since I did any.

I have just joined a 10k training program. It will not help me with the fitone race because the training only starts two weeks prior to that race. They said we are preparing for the strut your stuff race in November.



Making salsa so I got to go check it cause it smells really really good.

Christine, the gym is a good idea! I'm spending time there myself!

Luckily the work week is almost over. Sadly, the weekend is going to be busier than work was. Oh well. It's all good.

The choices you make today will determine the path that your life will take.

Some people try to turn back their odometers. Not me, I want people to know 'why' I look this way. I've traveled a long way and some of the roads weren't paved.

Go Christine! Love the mirror. I refinished a high chair in high school and the sanding was the worst part!

Busy week for me. Early morning meetings and evening meetings. And work in between. And the smoke in the air isn't my friend. It's worse out by micron than it is at home. Leaving at 3 from work today so I can get a workout in before my evening mtg!

Have a great Wednesday!

Barb, I enjoy the process of refinishing furniture, but I do not care much for sanding. Thankfully I am not having to do any right now! :)

Hi Christine! How are your projects coming? Getting to a point that you can rest?

Yes, Kathy, how was your mini-vacation?

Walked to the library today, met some friends for lunch, did laundry and then went out to dinner with DH. Purty good day!!

Christine, if you buy your tickets online before the 18th, every day is cheaper. Monday is family day and no alcohol is sold. Other than that, I think all days are the same.

Kathy, enjoy your mini-vacation! Are you headed to Reno?

I do enjoy the cooler weather. My workout partner and I have been taking advantage of the temps by working out outside while we can. Temps will be too hot and then too cold before you know it!

Rachael are you still walking with your mom for 10 minutes a day? I am hoping work hasn't gotten in the way of that.

Hello all. Hope everyone is enjoying this cooler weather. Thought I might need a jacket this morning then I told myself "if it was March you would think 54 degrees was warm" so off I went I just had to move fast to stay warm.

Barb I hope your back is better.

Well I am off for a mini vacation catch up when I get back.

Today was one of those busy days that I was moving all day, but got nothing done. Tomorrow should be better, I hope!

The weather is supposed to be mild this week, mid-80's. I hope I don't freeze! LOL!

Is anyone going to the fair?

Hi everyone! My friend and I did a 5k doing intervals. Then I went to Kuna Days with my sone and watched the parade and walked around for awhile. The only bad part was that my back started cramping when I was getting ready for the shower. Back is still a little sore. Hoping to feel better in the morning.

Good for you, Christine! Getting your walk in early.

My tracker racked up 16,007 steps yesterday on the virtual Arizona Trail on Walking4Fun. That was 160% of my daily goal on Fitbit's "Goal Day" challenge. I find ways to exercise almost all day long--in the kitchen while cooking or waiting for my tea water to boil and while sitting watching TV. I keep moving.

Enjoy your day.

Wow the 20th is right around the corner. I am going to try to make it Kathy because I would love to see all of those fit seniors! May just motivate me! :)

Barb, I didn't get anything in my garden this year, so enjoy for me. There is nothing like a fresh tomato right off the vine! Also sorry about your work PC, hope it get fixed or replaced soon.

Wow it looks 5 times as smoky out there today, I think I am going to get my steps inside today!

Hi Kathy, I'll add my hope of wings to Christine's! And, yes, I'm good with waiting until September for our group walks. Hopefully it will be cool enough to walk later in the day and everyone can join us!

My work PC died today. Makes it hard to get work done when your main tool dies. Oh well. I think it will be fixed tomorrow....fingers crossed!

i've picked a few tomatoes from my garden. Now, if I could get some cucumbers, I could have a cucumber and tomato sandwich. The real sign that summer is here!

The yard work would be easier if I didn't go for an early morning walk/run and work in the yard instead. But I won't give up the early morning walk/run. When the sweat was running like a river today I gave up the outside work. That was this afternoon I had to wait for the garbage man before I could do much. I did spend an hour in the morning working and that wasn't bad but this afternoon was a killer. It builds muscle and character, RIGHT!

I do need to go find some river rock. I am putting it down the property line to keep my bark in place and to mark the property line.

Senior games
Where: Boise Greenbelt at Glenwood & Marigold; 6000 Glenwood St, Garden City
When: Saturday, August 20th - 9:00am 10K, 9:15am 5K
The address is the Garden City Library.

Hopefully the lead in my behind won't hold me back.

Kathy I am going to emoticon you have wings the day of the qualifier! Where do you want your supporters to be that day? Time/place? Oh and good luck with the yard work, my goodness we could use a cool off!

How is everyone doing this brand new month of August?

Seniors have to qualify for nationals. I don't know if I will go if I do qualify but I do want to qualify so I can say I did. The senior games are next June in Birmingham. I have to run the 5k qualifier in 27:21. I have never run that fast in my entire life, So the odds are not good but I am going to give it my all.

I am waiting for the garbage man to come so I can refill the garbage bin. I can start spreading bark once the piles are picked up and the ground leveled a bit. No rest for the wicked.

Hope you all are having a great Monday.

Hi Kathy, wow you are really busy this summer getting ready for races. I guess I didn't realize you have to qualify for the senior race. I am rooting you on!!! emoticon And for the 10k as well. Oh, I brought home the family oak dining table, an oak hall tree that was my mom's first antique, and my Aunt Babe's sewing chest. I am very grateful for all the memories they bring to me. So happy your neighbor is bored and is helping you with your yard. It seems like there is always something to do in mine too!

Christine I will be leaving down for a few days mid august. I can't be gone as long as I'd like to be because I have the senior qualifying race on the 20th. I am training hard for it and for my 10k in September. What kind of antiques did you bring home?
I have a few pieces of antique furniture. I love good pieces of antique furniture. I hope it is just something minor with your DH arm but it is worrisome so let's hope they figure it out fast.

Sondra I hope things calm down for you soon. Maybe we can start our group walks back up in September. I think that is when Rachel will be available also. I know her work schedule has been really hectic lately also.

Barb glad you got to sleep in, I am jealous. Do you want to wait until September for a schedule walk? August 6th is my only open weekend. I will be out of town on the 13th, the 20th is the senior qualifier and the 27th is Idaho Wine Harvest run.



I have been getting up early for a walk or run while it is a bit cooler then I have been working on my yard. It really is to hot to work out there but I want to get in done. I filled my trash bin with debris from the yard as well as two of my neighbors trash bin, with there permission of course. I got a load of bark delivered so I have to get the area cleared so I can get the bark put down beings it was dumped partially on the neighbors property again with their permission.

My yard work is going faster then I thought it would but that is mainly due to my neighbor doing some of the work. When I go out for my morning run she comes works on my yard. She is bored she is not dealing with retirement well. She can't find enough to do so I am gladly accepting the help. I figure I will need to fill up the three trash bins for the next three weeks leaving room for the normal household garbage. No my lawn is not that junky. I am uprooting Iris trimming trees and bushes.

I'm sorry to hear about DH's arm. I hope they can figure out what is happening and fix it easily.

Today was a good day. I slept in, walked to the library and then relaxed the rest of the day. Hoping tomorrow is just as easy. :)

How is everyone's weekend is going well.

The choices you make today will determine the path that your life will take.

Some people try to turn back their odometers. Not me, I want people to know 'why' I look this way. I've traveled a long way and some of the roads weren't paved.

Hi Everyone!

Barb, DH's arm keeps going numb so the doctors want to check his neck to see if they can find out why it is doing that. Then he may get a shot for it or surgery. :( Glad you got to sleep in today too!

Sondra,Your schedule does sound grueling. I hope there is a light at the end of the tunnel. We can plan a walk when you can join us.

Christine, why does DH need an MRI? Is he okay?

Kathy, what do you have planned for tomorrow? Good things I hope!

I got my grocery shopping and errands done. Laundry is done and I worked in the garden. This means I can sleep in tomorrow!! Yippeee!!

Sondra, your schedule is certainly demanding. You sound smart enough to make it work for you though by taking your breaks when you can. I hope you will have a good visit with your son too!

Barb, your garden sounds like it is starting to pay off!

Kathy are you getting out of town for a bit?

Well I wouldn't have been able to make the walk either so hopefully next time. I brought three antiques home with me from Napa. I am refreshing them, so I have been extremely busy working on projects. These are things that I can only get done in the heat of the summer.

My DH is also waiting to get an MRI on his neck on the August 9th so no mountains for me either. :(

Sorry I've been MIA. Life is just been extremely busy for me with work. I've had customers moving out of their house and into new houses. That means I have to do move out cleans and new house cleans (to get it to my standards) It's always physically hard to do these extra cleanings, plus work around all the packing and moving. My business is currently at full capacity with me cleaning 2 -3 houses per day. I am having long days and have been physically exhausted.

When I go through weeks and weeks of such hard work, I don't have energy for much and my body is already hurting from working so hard for 9 or 10 hours. On the weekends I have to let my body rest and recover so I can hit it the next week. I'm hoping that all this extra work will start to slow down and I can start enjoying my life and the summer again.

I will be in Salt Lake City on August 6th moving my youngest son into a new apartment and cleaning his old one. I won't be available until the 13 and hopefully life will be at a better place for me.

Kathy, I need to get you some Melaleuca oil for bee / wasp stings. It works really well for the itch and quick healing. I'm really into essential oils. Next time I see you I'll bring you a sample bottle. Hopefully you won't get stung again. I also have enjoyed the pictures you have posted from your walks.

That actually works better for me too! And maybe the heat will break before then and Christine will be able to join us. Sondra and Rachael, I hope you can join us too!

I pulled/picked the last four carrots from my garden. They look like actual carrots!! Pretty excited about that!

Christine, if you're up and in the valley, you are welcome to join us on the walk!
Kathy, great pictures! I'm glad that the bee sting isn't too bad this time.

Today was a pretty good day. Left early for a workout and then logged in for a couple of hours for meetings. AND, I just picked the first two tomatoes from my tomato plants! One of them had to have half of it cut away. The top split while it was growing on the vine. I don't know if it is the variety or the way I'm growing them. Oh well. It'll taste deliciousness tomorrow with my lunch!

Hi everyone!!!

Well I didn't make it up early today, but I was dead tired from working on projects in the heat. I am going to try for 7:00 again tomorrow morning.

Kathy I love the pictures! Wow 103 on Saturday.... I may be up in the mountains.

Thankfully the bee sting is not even close to as bad as the last one.

Christine if you are getting up earlier you better be going to bed earlier. At the very least take a nap.

Saturday it is suppose to get up to 103 so we don't want to start any later then 9:00. Rachel & Sondra are you up for a walk on Saturday?

can't believe it I got stung again today.

Yesterday I got up early and sprayed all the yellow jacket nest. Evidently I missed some, still haven't found the nest I missed. When out working in my yard today I notice quite a few flying around but they weren't close to me so I continued on with my yard work. The next thing I knew I got stung right by my knee. Needless to day that ended the yard work for the day. I do have benadryl this go around so hopefully it won't be as bad. It also doesn't hurt as bad as the last one but then it didn't bite me as long.

Hope you are all having a good weekend.f

Hey Barb after talking about salmon I broke down and bought some frozen salmon and some froze maui. Any recommendation on how to cook it or should I ask your son.

Christine I look forward to our walk in the fall.

Kathy, I will be at the zoo at 9:00. I like the MK/Warm Springs option. Hoping Sondra and/or Rachael can meet us too!

Christine, sounds like fun! And you got a new elliptical! Sweet! Hope Hunk gets it put together soon.

Today was a good day. Did a 5k with a friend (just around the neighborhood), then walked around town for some errands. Made chocolates for Bunco tomorrow night and did laundry. I'm tired now!

hope to see y'all tomorrow!

I don't do early anymore, but I do hope all you early birds have a great team walk!

Roberta I am so sorry you are still having problems sleeping sometimes. Good job on all of those steps though! emoticon

I am so happy today because I am back to the weight I was before I left! Yahoo!!! I will be continuing to try to get back down to 140. That is probably my goal weight I could actually get to again this summer. I did get a brand new elliptical new (not put together yet). That will be a DH project.

We are just trying to get back to normal here first. DH is planning a fun thing for us in the mountains near Stanley. A friend of ours Patti (& Rick) take their camper up to the mountains and leave it there, and use it like a cabin and get this, it is FREE. They go up every weekend because she still works. Anyway, 80's during the day and 40's at night, so we won't need A/C. I am so excited! I hope this works out because there is so many mountain birds I have never seen! Plus there is a stream behind the road. The bad part is there is NO Wi-Fi but I can go into town once a day and use my iPhone's Personal Hotspot and check messages and so on .I also need to get a screened in room because DH doesn't like bugs! :)

I will check back in at 7:00 AM to see if anyone wants to meet up.
I try to be out the door between 7 and 8 to beat the heat of the day.
So if there is no response because I posted the suggestion so late. I will hit my neighborhood roads. However I would really really like a change of scenery so I am keeping my fingers crossed that we will have a team walk.

Here are a few suggestions. Does anyone else have some suggestions?
1. We can meet at the zoo and then walk to municipal park go through the MK nature center then walk up to warm springs and view the old homes and then back to Julia Davis

2. We can walk the nature trail off Riverside street by the Glenwood bridge.

3. We can meet at Ann Morrison and walk to the White Water Park.

4. We can meet at the Eagle Sports Complex off old Horseshoe bend road and walk the foot hill trails.

I think we need to start our walk by 9:00, rumor has it it is going to be hot.

Any suggestion on where to walk? I will go anywhere, well almost.

Did 15,281 steps yesterday. That was 150% of my daily goal of 10,000.

On Walking4Fun Arizona Trail, I finished up Stage 12 and on to Stage 13 last evening.
That is 12 out of 43! (31 more to go)

I slept 1:40 hrs last night out of 13:16 hrs in bed--took 9:30 hrs to fall asleep! (And here I was doing so well!) That strawberry smoothie for supper was responsible! All those carbs! What was I thinking! I wasn't! I was hungry! It was quick! emoticon

Thanks Barb!

I am working on the mountain of laundry today and the general cleanup on the camper. But I got my walk in first before the heat set in!

Sorry you are working so hard Rachael. Hang in there!

Welcome home Christine!

Kathy, 25 seconds? You can definitely shave that off!!! Love the picture of you and your friend. And joining a running group is a great idea. Gives you someone to suffer with. tee hee.

Rachael, I'm sorry you're working so much! Those hours sound horrible! Why is it so busy at your work?

Where are we going on the 23rd and what time?

Have to shave 25 seconds off my time to qualify for the senior games. I can do this.

Here is a picture of me with a running teammate. She is 71 years old. I hope I am still going at 71.

I got invited to join a trail running group today, and yes I am going to do it. I am truly becoming a running fool.

Oh and they had extra shirts so they let me exchange the shirt for a larger size.

Barb the nap sounds better. I know with the race being on a Sunday you probably couldn't do it cause I know that is a day you spend with your DH.

Rachel look forward to seeing you on the 23rd. I don't know if we have picked a spot yet but we will. Try and sneak in as much rest as you can.

I picked up my packet today and I think they must have given me a child shirt because it is way to small. Makes me sad because it is the prettiest colored shirt I have been given.

Hi everyone. Hope you are all doing well.

Sorry I haven't checked in for awhile...been working from 8:30 am to 9:30 pm almost every day since I came back from vacation..will likely be doing the same schedule on Saturday and possibly Sunday, too. I might be able to back off to 7:30 leave time next Wednesday...we'll see. By the end of August when this crunch period is over, I should be a little less exhausted. I hope??

If I don't have to work on the 23rd, I would love to join you for a walk Kathy and Barb!

Hi Kathy, I'm not doing the race this weekend. Too many other things going on. I'll look at the Ho Ho Hustle, but no promises. I do want to see you in your beard though! LOL!

How's everyone else doing?

Tomorrow I'll be running a couple of errands and then back home for either laundry or a nap or both. :)

Speaking of, it's my bed time. Spark you all later!!

Anyone doing the Woman's Classic this coming weekend? Besides me that is.

Barb glad the car fix did not cost and arm and a leg and your first born grandchild.

Christine whether your mom knows you or not, if she is anything like my mother she will just enjoy the visit. My mother would go with complete strangers, all they would have to do is start a sentence with "Do you want to go". She made up a lot of "replacement Memories" some were pretty wild but I just went with the flow. There was no way I could convince her she had never jumped out of an airplane or that she never bungee jumped. She sure had a lot of adventures in her mind once her memory failed. So just enjoy the moments with your mom.

Enjoy your trip Christine! Even if your mom doesn't remember you, you remember her and it will be nice to see her.

DD's car is fixed for only the cost of a thermostat and some silicon for the seal. Yippee!!

Kathy, One wasp sting is pretty bad!! And very cool on the new (to you) laptop. I have Windows 10 and I don't mind it.

Christine, enjoy your trip! Drive safe and have a great time!

Busy day for me today. Updated yield slides and that took most of the day. Plus had to do lots of other work. Should make a fast week!

Four wasp stings, wow I guess I better quit whining about my single sting.

Yesterday I ran in the rain, today I walk in the cool sunshine. I would love it if our weather would stay like it was today but rumor has it will have summer once again. The woman classic race is Saturday I am really hoping for cool weather.

Christina have a safe journey and have fun.

My nephew sent me a refurbish laptop. Such a sweet boy, is company is replacing their computer and I am benefiting from it. It has windows 10 so I am going to have to spend a little time playing with it, but I am happy.

Barb, we are planning on leaving this Wednesday, we don't drive straight through, just too long of a road with nothing to look at for the most part. And I am with you that I am enjoying the weather today!

How is everyone doing this week?

The old is new again! I reported that a hospital used honey on a relative's bedsore. Now that anti-biotics are ineffective against the super bugs, colloidal silver is in use again--the topical kind. Do NOT ingest another form of silver--it turns your skin BLUE! Did you ever hear of the Blue Man! I found a bottle at Natural Grocers store. They had a bunch of kinds, but I bought the topical one for cuts, sore, infections, etc. I think that advice was in an email newsletter from Dr. Mercola (mercola.com).

Four stings??!?! Ouch! Poor baby! I'm sorry that she did, but what a warrior!

Christine, how fun that you get to go visit your mom! When do you head out?

Kathy, with all of those races should help you shave some time off. Maybe not three minutes. You're right...that's a lot of time to shave.

Hi Rachael and Sondra! Will you be able to join us on the 23rd?

Today was cold and rainy. As much as we can use the rain, I'm ready for the sun again. Hope you all have a great week!

Wow, your daughter is a warrior! When I got stung by one I remember being in a great deal of pain and not being able to "take" it.

I should be back from CA by the 23rd. I am going to visit my mother.

My DD was stung four times on her cheekbone by wasps yesterday when she moved a patio chair where they had a nest!!! She dowsed them with spray wiping out the entire bunch! Then mowed her lawn! What a warrior!

The 23rd looks good for me. Saturday the 16th is the woman's classic race. The senior games are August 20th and three minutes is a lot of time to shave off when it comes to running. I will give it a shot.

I too need to get out to the range. I should be at least doing some dry drills.

Hope you all are have a relaxing Sunday.

Hi ladies! I have a CCW permit, but not enhanced. Would like to get an enhanded, but not sure when I will go for that. I am going shooting with the guys from work next weekend. Good practice!

Are we planning a walk soon? The next one I can join in on would be the 23rd.

Kathy, I'm glad your ankle is feeling better. How soon do you run the seniors run? Maybe that's enough time for you to pull your speed down by three minutes. Maybe?

Roberta, I like your imagery. Hope it works for you!

The choices you make today will determine the path that your life will take.

Some people try to turn back their odometers. Not me, I want people to know 'why' I look this way. I've traveled a long way and some of the roads weren't paved.

These days grocery store parking lots and movie houses are soft targets. I was followed once coming out of Fred Meyer by a scruffy guy. My nearby store person said carrying concealed is OK in their store if you have a CCW permit.
