Trying to get to the place where you add a blog entry is SUCH a pain. I'll be blogging my fitness at . I just don't have the time to sit and click and try to figure out where they hid the blog button. I h... Read more

I'm happy to report that I'm back at it-- motivated to go for another 20 pounds or so. I've cut out pop and have ramped up salad intake and my exercise. My current exercise plans are pre-training for the Austin half. Right now, I'm just t... Read more

I really hope this isn't the nasty cold-->bronchitis/pneumonia thing several of my friends have had in the past few months. It's getting old. I'm antsy to run. I'm going to try a quick, short run tomorrow morning before heading to a b... Read more
Coughing Run
Thursday, April 22, 2010      1 comments

Did a short run today (Wednesday) mostly because Blackie the dog needed it! My son and I went to the Capitol and back. He biked and I ran. Despite my cough, I got to the Capitol 30 seconds faster than I ever had. I walked back, though. ... Read more

I'm antsy to get running again, but I'm sick. Last week, we all got the cold that seems to be going around. Mostly a sore throat and coughing, but for me, between my asthma and my lowered immunity from the marathon attempt, I'm trying to be ca... Read more

I'm registered for Green Bay! I don't have a lot of time to adjust my training very much, but I am going to work on running faster over the next few weeks. If it weren't for my sore left toe, I'd be ready to run right now, but I'm giving it a ... Read more

I'm getting more upset about my DNF by the day. More than 30 people finished after 6:15 (clock) including one who finished AFTER seven hours. When we found out they allowed more than 30 people to cross after the finish line was supposedly clo... Read more

Well, I have collected another DNF at the St. Louis marathon. It was a nice course and a good crowd, but I ran out of time and they threw me off the course. My friend and I got to the starting area just before 6am. We wandered a bit and t... Read more

I'm so excited! Sunday is the marathon! My stomach has not been happy the past couple of days-- I think it's the excitement. I have to calm down. Friday, we're taking Blackie to the dog park to make up for the lack of long runs. I think... Read more
My Dog is Annoyed
Sunday, April 04, 2010      6 comments

I haven't run since Tuesday (a GREAT 5.5-miler) and my dog finally let me know today that she needs to run more! She tore up my bedspread-- this is the first thing she has destroyed since we started running. She definitely needs to run more. ... Read more
Two Weeks to Go! (LOOONG)

(First, I have to wonder why SP makes it so difficult and confusing to get to this page? They would really benefit from web usability studies.) Two weeks to go until the St. Louis marathon! I can't believe I'm really going to do it! Yest... Read more

I didn't realize how long it's been since I last posted! Since then, I've finished my PhD and started training for a marathon (St. Louis in April). I've been running with friends on the weekend and running on my own during the week with one of... Read more

The past couple of weeks have been strange and busy. I've been working full-tilt on my dissertation. I need to have a decent draft done by August 15. Also, during TKD class a couple weeks ago, I got a deep muscle bruise on my shin/calf ... Read more

Our son is away at a summer camp this week. Dh and I are making plans to have better mealtime habits when he comes back this weekend. We all tend to be snackers and eat in the living room. We're going to try to get back to eating at the dinin... Read more
