Barb I look for you also I must have missed you go by, I was standing just inside the Park before the finish line. You probably came through when I went to get food.

First 10k in the book 1:09:31 Not bad time for the first one. I am glad you did not have to walk a lone.

I thought BSU was going to give the game away that second half.

Are we still walking on October first? I have a race on the 2nd so I will skip the Saturday training. So I am up for a walk in the park.

Hope everyone is enjoying the fall weather

Thanks Christine! The FitOne was fun! Kelli and I started with a group of about eight. We finished the whole thing in just under 40 minutes. Pretty happy with that time! Thanks for coming Kelli!

Kathy, I looked for you, but didn't see you. How was the 10k? How many of those have you run now this year?

I'm sitting here watching BSU play football against Oregon State and doing laundry. Later, DH and I will go out for dinner. Don't know where yet...we decide as we are driving away from the house.

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.

The rain was a nice change..until it rained in the middle of my softball game. Hoping the weather is nice and a little warmer on Saturday morning for the FitOne.

Happy almost Friday everyone!

Barb, I think folks are still following this thread but they don't always have a lot to say. Plus I am always finding fall to be a busy time of year for me. I still have lots to do in the yard and in the house.

My bike either needs a new chain or needs the one it has fixed. I'd like to ride with DH, but we will have to start a LOT smaller! I'm not even a fan of driving for 35 miles, let alone riding that far!

My 1:00 appointment is being rescheduled, so we can meet later if that is better for anyone.

DH isn't a big walk kind of guy. But he did ride his bike from Glenwood up to Lucky Peak and back. That's a 35 mile round trip!!!

Okay...10:00 on Saturday, October 1st, meet on the Greenbelt near the zoo. Hope everyone can join us!!

Congrats Kathy!! You do run a lot!!

Christine, that's great that you and DH walk every day. I took a walk around the neighborhood last night and invited my DH. He did not join me.

On the first, I have an appointment (lunch with friends) at 1:00. So how does 10:00 at the zoo sound? Is that too early for you Christine? Sondra? Rachael? Kelli?

On Oct 1st. I usually run with TRB at 8:00 Not sure yet if that will happen on the first because of the race I am running on the second. So set a time and I will do my best to be where ever it is you want to walk. It has been a while so I am looking forward to the group get together.

From today's race.
First place in my age group. So nice not to have competition.

Wow Roberta! That is impressive! Both the no meds and being exempt for jury duty! I've been on a jury every single time I get the summons. I must be pretty non-threatening!

Kathy, Holy moly!! That is a lot of races! What time on the 1st would work for you?

Chrsitine, are you still walking outside with DH when you can?

Played softball last night and did all right. I got to play catcher, so that was fun for me. Lots of running around today and even more tomorrow. Better head to bed soon so I have the energy for it all!

As far as Oct 1 goes it will depend on the time but it looks like early mornings on Saturday for this silly fool are full for a while. I am such a fool I have a race every weekend except one through the end of October. The weekend I am not scheduled for a race I am out of town.

This weekend I run in the Celebrate Women's Fitness
Following weekend it FitOne
the next one is the SueB Memorial
then it is Race for the steak
Then my weekend out of town
followed by Beer n' Brats race

I have a couple of races schedule in November and one so far in December and a couple already schedule for next year. And this silly ole woman is looking to fill in the empty slots in November and December. This running group that asked me to join them has really motivated me. I even signed up for training to teach me to run faster. Who knows maybe I will do something extremely crazy next year and sign up for a half Marathon. Nope I don't think so. I have a few more 10Ks schedule but I really do prefer the 5 because I can be done with them and cheer people on.

Hope you all have a great weekend.

I just remembered that I'm supposed to go shooting with the guys from work this Saturday. Means I won't be able to walk until October 1. The Fit One is the 24th.

Barb, Don is going in for another round of shots and is getting a medication that is supposed to help his nerves in his neck. As the summer is waning I am still trying to finish projects before it is too late. As far as I know we aren't going out of town for the 17th. We did talk about Hagerman though.

Hi Ladies! Somehow I dropped off this thread, but I'm back for now.

Kelli, you are absolutely welcome to walk with us for the FitOne. We might do some walking/running, but probably mostly walking. We'd love to have you join us. I'll text you when we make plans and see if you can meet us. We usually get on the shuttles at the mall pretty early and go from there.

Kathy, DD and I are on the Micron team. Otherwise I'd be happy to join your team. Sorry you're not allowed back on the course to join us. :( Maybe we can meet up in the park after. Your flag walk sounds really cool! I hope it was enjoyable for you.

Rachael, I hope everything is going good for you. Hugs are coming your way!

Sondra, I agree...time to start our walks again. How does this Saturday look? The 17th? And woot on your son's progress!!!

Christine, is Hunk doing okay? Taking care of himself? How is that elliptical treating you?

Tomorrow 9-11 I will be walking with Team RWB of the Treasure Valley (RWB - Red White and Blue- former military all branches)

To honor September 11th in a way like no other. Two flags will be kept in constant motion from sunrise to sunset. They will only stop to mark the times when the towers, the Pentagon, and Flight 93 struck killing over 3,000 people that day.

We ask members of the community and their families to join veterans, law enforcement, and our first responders to make this happen. Feel free to bring your own flag and join at any point to contribute.

The Flag of Service has the names of every first responder who was killed on 9/11. The Flag of Honor has the names of every person killed on 9/11.

I will be carry one of the special flags from 4 to 5 you are all welcome to join me at
Julius M. Kleiner Memorial Park. That is the park behind the Village.

emoticon Everyone! Back after four beautiful days at the lake. I think yesterday had a high of 77 and no smoke in the air either, until today when we were leaving.

Roberta I am so sorry for your recent insomnia! I hope the doctors can figure out what is going on!

Been going through insomnia big time and am very sleep deprived. A few weeks ago I had an episode of sleep walking during the day! I was scared and embarassed, and afraid to drive my car. Then last evening, I had an episode of ophthalmic migraine and another one today at Noon! Add to that muscle spasms in neck, and sinus and head pain when I cough! My DD will take me to Walmart tomorrow for food and supplies. I have tried all the protocols for sleep and these migraines. I stopped taking my nutritional supplements several weeks ago, and that could be the cause. Restarted taking them today.
Other than that, I am fine. emoticon

Hi Everyone,

Sondra, emoticon on your son's new job and getting back to normal. I hope you don't mind but I also wrote down your phone number. You are such an easy person to "talk" to!

emoticon Also now that the weather is cooler I guess we can all get out for a walk more often. :)

Rachael, it IS good to hear from you. I'm sorry that things didn't work out with your husband. Now it's time to heal and it sounds like you've got some great goals ahead of you.

I'm a total home body. I love being home and I don't know if it's divorce, hurt, rejection that keeps me cocooned in my house away from possible hurt again - but I have a tough time getting out there and outside my comfort zone to a possible risk of getting hurt. It's also a change to feel comfortable to being alone. It just feels safer to know someone else is there to protect me (even if it was my toddler). It's an adjustment to being alone. I think if you find you can't leave your house and it's something more - please get some counseling.

I hope we start walking again together. My biggest loser team is starting up again on Wednesday. The past 2 weeks have been the pre-challenge. I got really overwhelmed with work, and the heat of the summer that for a while I wasn't walking very much at all. The past few weeks and the cooler weather has been good for me and yes, I'm walking my favorite path 2 - 3 times a week. Yesterday I did my walk at Ann Morrison Park. I love this cooler weather.

My home number is 208-884-1775 and cell number is 208-761-9443 if you need to talk, text or need support. I'm here. My son - Jason is 55 days sober - it's been so wonderful and I'm happy to have my son back to normal. Addiction is hard and changes people in such a bad way. I hope and pray everyday that he won't slip and become an addict again. He seems like he's got a handle on it with daily intense outpatient classes, meeting every night and a sponsor. He's starting a job this week too! It's been so nice to see him make this positive change - but he did it for himself - not for any of my pleading him to stop using drugs. You can't save them - they have to save themselves.

Again, I'm sorry that things didn't work out. Now it's time to take care of YOU, you have to mourn, and recover from this. You can do it. This is a great team of ladies that are here to support you in anyway we can.

Happy September Everyone!!!

Good to see you here Kelli! Congrats on starting a new business! Oh that picture of Blake is so cute! He is going to have a blast with the SWAT team member too! Arresting Charlie Brown is hilarious! Good job getting your house all ready to sell - sounds exciting to move!

Hello Everyone,

I know it has been ages since I posted! Been super busy lately with my new business and took two vacations in July. We went to my mom's for the 4th and then I went home again for her retirement party. Hubby kept Blake for the weekend and I got to go by myself. It was a very energizing trip and so much fun.

Tomorrow Blake gets to go meet the Boise Police. They are setting up a SWAT team member to come and show him the gear, sit in a police car, and find out all about putting bad guys away. That is his latest thing, the other night he arrested Charlie Brown. See pic....

We have been cleaning and thinking about putting my rental house up for sale and buying a new house. So stressful.... but fun too. So my husband has been cleaning carpets redoing the furniture, (my living room is really cute now) cleaned out Blakes room throwing away all kinds of stuff and on and on.

Barb - Are you doing the Fit One? All of my friends cancelled on me, and I am doing it by myself. Would love to have someone to walk with if it all possible.

Kathy - WAY TO GO on those races... I went back through some of the posts. That is so awesome. You are such an inspiration.

Christine - Hi.... I see you are enjoying yourself. It has been way to long since I have been here.

Hey Barb have a question for you. Are you and your daughter part of any team for the fitone race? If not would you join the team I am on?

Oh and they won't let me back on the course to walk with you according to the rules.

Kathy, I am so relived that you won't be leaving us on this team. Gosh you sure keep busy with all of your races! I am not sure I would like the Jalapeno Lemonade wine... sounds pretty spicy! LOL

DH and I are planning a get-a-away on Labor day. We are going to Mack Creek up above Lucky Peak.

Idaho Wine Harvest Race
Large turn out in my age group. There was 17 of us old ladies. It must have been the call of the wine at the end of the race that brought out so many. Not being much of a drinker I only sampled one wine. It was Jalapeno Lemonade wine. It was very interesting, I think I could learn to enjoy it. One of my TeamRunBoise team mates said it is really good to use in cooking a chicken in the crockpot. I will have to try it.

Because I foolishly signed up for the 10k at the St Lukes Fit One race that is what I am in training for now.

Sondra I understand what you are saying about to many teams. This will be my last round of BLC of course it isn't over for 15 weeks. After that I think I will drop out of most teams. Not this one however, because I have actually meant some of you so you are all real to me.

Hope you are all having a great weekend.

Hi everyone! I'm really enjoying the cooler air and love the days when the smoke isn't too bad and you can see blue skies and the mountains.

Way to go Kathy! I love that you beat a long legged 50 year old. Woo Hoo!

Sounds like everyone is doing great. I thought I'd check in and see if there was a walk planned for tomorrow. I guess I'll check back for Sept 3.

I did get in 2 walks this week by the river! I love those walks. I've had a great week on my steps! I'm back to getting 10K steps daily - the cooler weather helps a lot!
8/20: 11,424
8/21: 14,541
8/22: 15,050
8/23: 12,163
8/24: 14,873
8/25: 13,276
8/26: I'm barely over 10K and heading to bed: 10,584 - but yea for meeting my goal.

I'm busy being involved in my biggest loser team. I am still active on the virtual walk and 10K steps a day. It's hard to be active on so many teams - that is why I haven't been around much.

I am still interested in meeting up for group walks when you are available. I hope we start again in September.

Have a great weekend!

Hello everyone.

I don't normally go to the fair and have no plans to do so this year.

This cooler weather is heaven as far as I am concerned and with the breeze clearing out the majority of the smoke in the valley I am getting happier.

Christine glad DH is on the mend

Barb glad training went quickly enjoy the fair.

I am running in the Idaho wine harvest race Saturday. Looking forward to the wine sampling afterwards.

Is Rachel and Sondra still swamped at work?

I hope everyone is doing well.
Catch you all later.

Hi Everyone!

Barb, thanks yes, it is so nice to see DH on the mend. And as far as the cooler weather, I am loving it!!! I am not planning on going to the fair this year.

I have a new elliptical in a box in the back of DH truck and I need to make room for it in my bedroom. Years ago I had a stair stepper that I put in the same spot, so hopefully I can work this out.

I'm glad DH is feeling better Christine!

I did some training with my coworkers in Asia tonight. I get to repeat the training tomorrow for the Boise crew and then again tomorrow night for the remainder of the Asia team who couldn't make it tonight. Only took 25 minutes instead of the 60 I had scheduled. I'm good with that!!

Is everyone enjoying the cooler weather? Is anyone going to the fair? I hope to go this Friday.

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

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,

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.

I know what you meant about being busy! Me too!! I imagine not having your daughter there to help has made more work for you. Hang in there, fall is coming and I plan on enjoying it! Hope you can too!

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.

Barb, I think this smoke is getting everyone. DH has been sneezing like crazy. Hang in there for what sounds like a busy week.

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!

Just love my retirement...

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! :)

8/14/2016 How is everyone today?

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?

My back is better. A little sore from the spasms, but feeling better.

Are we all ready for the week? I could always use an extra day off. :)

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.

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.
