I'm looking at the last two weeks as a nice rest for the race schedule that's ahead of me this fall. Not that I was super lazy or anything... I walked loads, I ran 3-5 miles at least twice a week, went surfing and dancing! But I also ate out a l... Read more

Super late on this August recap given we're already over a week into September. The first week of the new month hasn't been so healthful, but I've tracked everything: good, bad and ugly. I had a wonderful time with my sister-in-law visiting for ... Read more

I spent all day cleaning up for my sister-in-law's arrival: cleaning out the fridge and finally finally getting my files and office organized. Oh! I guess I can tick that off my list now! YAY! Well before I knew it, it was time to pick up ... Read more

Sunday, August 22, 2010      48 comments

One of the things I love about running is that you never know what you're going to encounter. It is like a mini-adventure! At today's scheduled 9-mile run, I ran into a surfing competition at the 4-mile mark that was also a benefit to raise mone... Read more

My first night race and my first race with my husband. Jon's training has been sporadic, so to speak, and I don't think he has run in the last two weeks, but I still expected him to beat me. He's 6'1" and has long runner's legs. Well, long ... Read more

So I got the BondiBands I was talking about yesterday in the mail. They're really cool and I'm definitely going to wear one to my race tonight because it's freaking hot and I'm gonna be sweaty. Hopefully they will do their job at sweat wicking. ... Read more

Well, this is it, dear SparkFriends... 436 days (i.e. 1 year, 2 months, and 10 days) since I joined SparkPeople. Friday the Thirteenth! Scary? 436 days ago, I looked at that number of 279 on the scale and thought to myself "How... Read more
