Thursday, March 18, 2010      0 comments

I read something that got me thinking, and I thought: Is there an expectation to blog? Well, that my be the case, but I don't blog often. There are several reasons, but the main reason is that I don't want to put anything out there that I fee... Read more

I have no idea where I'm going. Hard to admit. I have a great personal life, but my work life could use an overhaul. Don't get me wrong: a lot of people would love to have my job, I have a good job, with a great company. The problem is, I d... Read more

I'm not sure if anyone will read this, but in the hopes that at least one person will, here goes: Please be careful to look where you are going when driving, even if you are going slow. A couple of weeks ago I was running with a friend. S... Read more

I was watching my morning news show this morning, and someone said: "What do you want Santa to bring you this year?" I thought about it, and there is really nothing that I want for, which made me think of Thanksgiving, only a couple days a... Read more
Running Again!

I ran today for the first time in about 6 weeks! I'm thrilled to be back out on the roads, but I have to say that "running" is a loose term. First of all, I was really slow - just over a nine minute mile - yikes! And I only went three miles. ... Read more

My boyfriend doesn't like "organized exercise". He likes getting dirty, working in the yard, moving rocks, even hiking. But the reality is that he works a ton of hours, and he doesn't make time to get outside enough. After having him on m... Read more

I'm going to the doctor on Thursday to see if I'll be cleared to run again. I doubt he's going to let me, since I still have some pain if I walk too much. I miss running. I miss what goes along with it. Being outside, especially at thi... Read more

Two different people gave me compliments today, and they were things that I don't see in myself. One person told me that I am "fit", and the other, in a totally separate conversation, told me that I'm an athlete. It made me think, what is an a... Read more
Still can't run, but...

I still can't run due to the stress fracture in my ankle. I thought not being able to run would just about do me in, but it hasn't. I've been taking spin class several times a week, as well as yoga. I'm finding that as long as I'm active my m... Read more

I got some bad news the other day: I have a stress fracture in my ankle. With less than 3 weeks until my first marathon, this was a real blow. I trained so hard this summer, and now I won't be able to do the thing that I have been so focused ... Read more
