SparkPeople status and goals
Monday, January 20, 2014      1 comments

I am an avid runner and Holy Yogi. I don't spend much time on SP these days, except to log my nutrition and fitness (beginning again with the New Year in 2014, since I am finally facing up to the fact that "you can't outrun a bad diet."). I am a... Read more
Summer Goals
Wednesday, May 30, 2012      1 comments

I really, really hate logging my food. I do need to do it, though. Ugh. Other goals: Run 25-30 miles per week (4 days, incl one day of hill/speed training) Physical Therapy/Strength training 2-3 days per week. Yoga 2-3+ days per we... Read more
Marathon Report
Tuesday, March 27, 2012      1 comments

Well, I finished!! It rained pretty much the entire time, and since the race was on trail, we had lots of mud and puddles (oh yeah, and slick trestles). In the beginning we could go around the puddles, but by the end they pretty much took up the... Read more
Final few days before marathon
Thursday, March 22, 2012      0 comments

Oh boy. Here we go. I have one more run (an easy three miler) today, then my first marathon on Sunday. I have done pretty much everything my plan called for, plus many a trip to the chiropractor to try to help my tight right hip/tight and someti... Read more
Las Vegas Half Marathon Race Report
Monday, December 12, 2011      0 comments

Google the RocknRoll Las Vegas Half and you will find lots of complaints. People even say they got sick from the water (I didn't). My only complaints were that it was really crowded. I just don't think it is possible to organize 44,000 people. P... Read more
Survived Thanksgiving. On to Marathon training.
Monday, November 28, 2011      0 comments

To update anyone who read my previous blog )waffling about running a race when I was just coming off a pretty brutal one), I opted out. I am glad I did. My knee is still not at 100%. I am running easy though and it is much better. I have a race ... Read more
Half marathon report, and your opinion, please
Monday, November 14, 2011      1 comments

I ran a hilly half marathon on Saturday and am still walking around like an old woman (quads are sore). There were about three+ miles of hills at the beginning, 6-7 lovely flat to rolling miles in between, and 3 more miles of monster hills at th... Read more
Grief and Running and Yoga
Tuesday, September 27, 2011      2 comments

I started running again last week after being unable to do anything at all. Paralyzed by grief and no desire to do anything but hug my sister and cry over her sweet son's death. Running was something I did that brought me joy, but now it i... Read more

I am back at work today (I work at a high school) and am both thankful for the return of routine and dreading it. I have several races planned this fall and am wondering how I am going to fit all my miles in with work and the days getting short... Read more
How to win a trophy :)
Wednesday, June 15, 2011      6 comments

OK, beyond working hard and training for the specific race, I must say again that it really helps to register for races in small towns. In a smaller field, a runner has a much better chance of placing. I ran a 5k last weekend in my tiny lit... Read more
What is your maintenance secret?
Wednesday, May 18, 2011      2 comments

I am really struggling with maintenance. I have been at my goal weight before then put 10-15 pounds back on and started over (repeat ad nauseum). I really don't want to screw it up this time. I am finding, though, that I am really obsessing over... Read more
Mrs. Incredible
Wednesday, May 11, 2011      2 comments

When I was running on Monday, on a much hillier route than I ever would have attempted a year ago, I noticed that my shadow looked like the cartoon Mrs. Incredible... all stretched out and hippy. It made me giggle to think about looking like a c... Read more
Race day inspiration
Tuesday, May 10, 2011      1 comments

As I said in my initial race report blog, my 10k on Saturday was lots of fun - great weather, beautiful course and great people. As in most cases in life, the people really made the most difference. I have been running with several friends for a... Read more

Monday, May 09, 2011      3 comments

First of all, thanks so much for all of your support, SP friends! I felt encouraged and pumped up and ready to rock for my race on Saturday. I use a RW app on my phone that had me at a goal pace of 9:01/mile and finish of 56:04. I knew that... Read more

Tuesday, May 03, 2011      3 comments

OK so I just went to a meeting at work and was determined NOT to have the sugar cookies that were served. FAIL. I had 3, then returned to find candy in my mailbox (darn you teacher appreciation week!). Anywho, way overdid my calories for this ti... Read more
