First of all, thank you so much for the kind words on my aunt's passing. She was quite a lady. Second, I forgot to finish my thoughts on running with my Yak Trax on during my eight mile run. I ended up running one two mile lap with them on,... Read more

Ketchup! So, the weekend before this past one was so busy it took me over a week to recover! Going waaaaaay back to January 15, I was knitting like crazy, but still way behind where I had intended to be on the baby sweater I was making for ... Read more

Friday, January 14, 2011      7 comments

Besides the one year anniversary of joining Spark People, this week also marks one year since I started running. I should have posted this yesterday, but I got confused by the fact that my first running blog post was posted the following day. Wh... Read more

Today is the one year anniversary of the day I joined Spark People. I can't even tell you how amazing this year has been. At times I feel like a totally different person than I was a year ago. Back then, I weighed 230 pounds, wore a size 18 or 2... Read more
Freakin' awesome weekend!

This weekend was pretty doggoned awesome by my standards. On Friday, I stopped off at REI and did a little damage to my wallet buying winter running stuff. I bought arm warmers, new insoles for my new-ish shoes, more SmartWool socks (plus a pair... Read more

So, yesterday was my first PT appointment of the new year. I haven't been to PT since Dec. 20 and was worried that I might have lost some of my conditioning. I drove home from work and changed into workout clothes before my appointment, because ... Read more
2011 and my outlook's as bright as my new background (holy cow, this is a long post)

It's going to take a while to get used to my new color scheme and background image, but who cares? I'm making "freakin' awesome" the phrase of the year! I'm sure FOXXYROXXYD will be delighted. ... Read more
Running stuff

I've been pretty concerned about the compressed time I have left to train for the half marathon. This week marks 7 weeks between now and the half and I'm up to 5 miles again. Which is great, but if I had been able to stick with my original progr... Read more
What I didn't get, didn't do, and what I accomplished (a lot!)
Monday, January 03, 2011      4 comments

So, last month I certainly didn't get any Consistency or 500 monthly points awards. I started December busy, got busier, and then when I finally had some breathing room, I got sick and then got the heck out of Dodge. I'm pretty sure I caught the... Read more
I'm behind again! I kind of suck at "Suck It" ;-)
Tuesday, December 07, 2010      3 comments

But I rock at so many other things, so I ain't worried about it. emoticon Last night I went to the gym to run ... Read more
Wintery excuses and procrastination can just suck it (catching up, so it's long)
Saturday, December 04, 2010      3 comments

I meant to join YOOVIE's "Suck It" December challenge on time, but I was stuck in a classroom with several male co-workers looking over my shoulder all week and I ran out of time to post. But I firmly believe that starting late is better th... Read more
Busy runner's blog! (jingle jingle)
Thursday, December 02, 2010      5 comments

I had to continue the blog post I started on Tuesday so I could post it today. I have been ridiculously busy this week, so I just ran out of time to finish it! This part was written on Tuesday: At PT last night, I told Jennifer about my ... Read more

I've been feeling progressively better lately. My ankle still has the occasional twinge of pain when I've overused it, but my knee actually feels pretty close to normal. Well, normal for me, anyway. Which means really noisy and occasionally unst... Read more
Less whining, more "I'm fine"-ing
Wednesday, November 17, 2010      3 comments

So, in the past few days, I've gone from "Oh, my God! The pain! Will I ever walk again!" to "Hmm. My knee feels okay. What's up with that?" I'm not 100% back to normal by any stretch of the imagination, but I feel much better. In fact, I kind of... Read more
