Princess Half Race Report
Monday, March 07, 2011      7 comments

It feels like it's been so long since the race. We stayed in Florida for almost a week after the half and it was crazy busy. I'm still trying to catch up here but I wanted to get my race report written. We got to FL on Thursday after a ve... Read more
Getting ready to go....
Wednesday, February 23, 2011      4 comments

I've been frantically packing all day, schooling my kiddos, getting the house clean for our house/dog sitter and planning our meals for the trip down. We're leaving at 1 AM for our almost 14 hour journey to FL, making a stop to see the space sh... Read more
Long run and other ramblings
Friday, February 18, 2011      4 comments

I am getting so excited for the Princess. Excited and scared at the same time. I don't know why I get so nervous before races. I think I'm especially nervous this year because I have something to prove. Even if it's only to myself, it still ... Read more
Need Help from FL Sparkers about Shuttle Launch
Friday, February 18, 2011      2 comments

We leave for FL in 6 days. YEAH! Since I found out the Discovery is launching for the last time on the day we drive down (Thursday), we decided to drive straight to see it. Besides, after 13 hours in the car with 6 people and a ton of stuff,... Read more
It's been a month since my last blog :(
Wednesday, January 19, 2011      2 comments

I did it again and I'm not even going to go there. Drop the guilt over neglecting the blog. Now that I have that out of the way..... Less than 6 weeks until race day. This is geeky, but every time I go to the Disney Princess Half Marat... Read more
10 weeks until the Princess Half!
Sunday, December 19, 2010      2 comments

I realized today that my training program is wrong. I don't know why, but I had the Princess Half scheduled for the first weekend in March. Wrong! After I adjusted it, I realized I have 10 weeks to get my act together. I have 10 pounds to lo... Read more
I won a mental battle!
Wednesday, December 01, 2010      5 comments

I woke up at 4:50 so I could get my 5 mile run in early. I was hoping to meet my running buddy but it was pouring so I knew I was headed to the gym. There is a tornado watch in effect so I was a little hesitant to drive, but I've been full of ... Read more
My eating is a mess!
Tuesday, November 16, 2010      0 comments

So far this week I'm on track with my working out (sort of), but my eating is horrendous! I just don't have the motivation to eat well. Monday I didn't do my P90X workout but did a 30 minute EA Active for the Wii workout (which I'm feeli... Read more

Tomorrow is the official start of my half marathon training. I'm supposed to run 2 miles. Well, it's not happening. DH is out of town until late Wednesday. We're also going out of town from Thursday to Saturday so this is going to be a challenge... Read more
New Shoes= Happiness!
Friday, October 15, 2010      2 comments

I've been struggling with plantar fasciitis since March. I thought I blogged about my shoe issues (I checked and I didn't). I wish I had because it would be nice to be able to look back and say "I told you so!" I've been wearing the sam... Read more
Real Girls Run 6K
Sunday, October 10, 2010      3 comments

I ran this race yesterday as part of my comeback attempt. I'm slowly testing my foot to see if it holds up. So far my longest slow run has been 7 miles and yesterday was my first race. My foot is to the point where it doesn't hurt at all runni... Read more

I have been thinking about this blog in my head for some time. I've struggled to find the time to post my thoughts on here. First a little background.... I've been injured since March 09. I tore my fascia during the Princess Half and ha... Read more
long weekend + pancakes = struggle
Tuesday, June 01, 2010      0 comments

I am such a creature of habit. I love schedules and predictability. My husband is quite the opposite. He is as spontaneous as they get. Needless to say, this has been a source of friction for us at times.... which has absolutely nothing to do wi... Read more
"3- it's a magic number." Schoolhouse Rock
Saturday, May 29, 2010      2 comments

Yup. 3. Today, it's MY magic number. 3 pounds gone. Not a huge number for some, but huge for me. I'm happy. I worked my tail off this week and it's good to see some results. One week down, 9 to go. I'm a little bit nervous about this week. ... Read more
week 1 of P90X is history
Friday, May 28, 2010      1 comments

Well, I made it through week one of P90X. I'm sore, I'm tired, but I couldn't be happier. I've had a great week. I've worked by body hard and I've eaten as well as possible. If I don't blow it today (and believe me, there's a huge chance I will)... Read more
