I have a lot to be thankful for. My situation at work has improved, at least for the next 4 months, and maybe for good. I should know something more around the 1st of October. This takes a huge weight off my shoulders. I have continued... Read more

I ran my first 5K this morning. It was a really nice experience. I was expecting to feel nervous, but I didn't. I was expecting to feel pressure to run faster than my pace, but I didn't. I started out slow, lost track of my daughter speeding... Read more

Today my biking buddy and I went out on the W&OD again and my 12-year old son came along too. It was hot and sunny, but not too humid. It felt great. We didn't bike as many miles today because my son is not used to it, but we still managed ab... Read more

I just want to know that if you don't hear from me in the next few days, it will likely be because my computer is having trouble again. It wouldn't boot up at all yesterday. Today it booted up but then got hung up on something and froze. I'm ... Read more

The good news is, I'm still running. 28 minutes today, to be exact. I'm still very slow, but I am just glad that I am building endurance for now. I'm still on track for a 5K in June. More good news: I'm getting more consistent about lifting... Read more

It has been very difficult for me to keep up with my blogging this month. Part of it is that I have been REALLY busy at work, not to mention some other crazy things that are going on that go against my sense of fairness, and grind away at my mo... Read more
