Wow.... it wasn't as bad as I thought. The last week was hard because I was kicking myself for signing up for this. I listened to all the horror stories about how hard it was and how your feet will hurt afterwards and you knees and bla bla bla... Read more

Too wet to go outside today, so I did the sculpt class this morning. Haven't done it in a while so it was a nice change. I really need to be consistent with weights/sculpting classes. Hoping after the race this week-end I can get back on more... Read more

Woke up this morning to a howling wind. We decided instead of an outside run to take the spin class at the Y. Good decision. Even had time for a quick cup of coffee. The class was really good. I feel like all day today I am fighting the sn... Read more
New Thang Tuesday

For the past few months I have been busy training for a half marathon. One of the things I struggle with is trying to find the right balance of what to eat before a long run. I usually run at 5am so it's hard to know what to do. This time aro... Read more

Oatmeal Outage

National disaster at my house this morning. Only about 1 T of oatmeal! I go thru oatmeal faster than Hugh Hefner goes thru girlfriends. Not a good way to start the day. So I mixed every little crumb into some yogurt with a fresh peach and s... Read more
