I Wouldn't Believe It If The Garmin Didn't Say It
Monday, December 12, 2011      3 comments

Julie isn't regularly blogging her thrice-weekly runs. This we know. But I assure you all is going okay (except my pitiful (okay completely lacking)) stretching routine after it is all said and done). As long as it isn't raining, I have bee... Read more

The Spark Team That Sealed My Spark Success
Wednesday, November 30, 2011      6 comments

I am sure we all have Spark Friends. But we likely have a core group/team that sucked us in and motivated us along the way, no? For me, the most influential team has been the Biggest Loser Challenge (BLC). I started in round 9, and we are now (g... Read more
Thankful Blog

Well...I sure know how to skip days of blogging ;) All is okay. I still have tailbone discomfort, but I could only sit out for so long. I could not just 'do nothing'. No way. No how! And that is why I am thankful. For the way I think.... Read more

Well, today was a struggle. I fell while descending stairs on Saturday evening. Had a plate of food and drink for my oldest. Landed right on my tailbone. This slowed today's pace by nearly 2 minutes. ... Read more

Week 1, Day 1, 13 minutes
Monday, October 24, 2011      2 comments

In the upper 40s this morning. Enough to make me want to cover my arms, which wasn't a big deal since I wouldn't be out too long. As much as I appreciate how fast my dog makes me isn't a sustainable pace and it causes a very mixed... Read more
PT Complete - Now What?
Wednesday, October 19, 2011      3 comments

So I had been on my own all of the MWF's in October for PT due to sick kids or my PT doc out of the country. I only missed one day due to my own illness. I got in and explained everything I had been doing. I know I had been cautious by kee... Read more
Something I'm Pondering During PT
Monday, October 10, 2011      2 comments

So here is a revelation...okay maybe not. You know we (folks who enjoy the run/jog/walk/etc) tend to advise eager new faces to get good shoes and that a great start is a couch to 5k. Okay, agreed. But something that has really been on my mind is... Read more
