I'm still sick and tired, so no running today either. This'll probably mean a crappy 5k time on Sunday, but whatever.... Read more

Sniffle. It's official. I have a cold. I'm blowing my nose every five minutes and my throat hurts, and I might have a wee bit of a fever as I'm alternating from hot to cold. I had a hard time sleeping last night until I took some NyQuil, a... Read more

Oh man. I did it. I ran 1.5 miles solid today, which was easier than I thought it would be, thanks to the pumping music on my ipod. (I find that music can help or hinder my running.) Tomorrow, I think I'll shoot for 2 miles. :) ... Read more

There's a reason we're all on sparkpeople. We all had that moment where we realized there were things we needed to change about ourselves, and took steps/are taking steps to fix those things. For me, it was seeing a heinous photo of ... Read more

I got my butt back on the treadmill today, since there's another 5k coming up THIS Sunday that I'd like to do a little better at than the one 2 days ago. :) We'll see how tha... Read more

If I can't be honest here on sparkpeople about the things going on in my head, many of which led to my being overweight and continue to affect my weight loss and fitness journey, where can I be honest, right? One of the perks of my job (You... Read more

Well, it's been a semi-whirlwind weekend. My fiancee's new show opened last night, and today the company we're both part of opened it's new (fabulous) kids show. It's now 7pm, and I have a 5k tomorrow morning at 9am. We had a... Read more

Woot. I'm really happy, since that'll be my last 5k run until the actual Trick or Treat Trot 5k on Sunday. It's a really solid time, and I anticipate holding that time or coming in faster (I'm generally faster outside. I mean, come on, the... Read more

Today's time feels really good - as I was talking myself out of working out even as I was walking to the fitness center and getting changed. I had made a deal with myself that after I ran 1 solid mile, I could walk the rest of the way if need be... Read more

I think I'm in good shape to beat my 2008 time of 31:52 at the Trick or Treat Trot. The race is this Sunday, which means I still have two more running days before the race - and a day of rest. I keep pushing myself once I actually ge... Read more

Ho-leeee crap. I guess my theory is true: The more upset I am about something, the faster I run. Who knew?... Read more

I have about thirteen pounds left to lose before I reach my goal weight. I have about six months until my wedding. If there was ever a better motivator, and time frame, I can... Read more

Woo! After two weekend days of not working out, except for a brief walk, and eating healthy, I hopped back on the treadmill this afternoon expecting a decent warm-up workout, and wound up blowing myself away! 34 minutes is a really great time, a... Read more
