My laptop has died. Guess there is a short in the charger. I have ordered a new one. In the meantime I am sparking on my phone. On the good side I have found SparkCoach on the app. I have not found SparkMail. Anyone know how to access it from th... Read more
Mystery

I woke up this morning with a sore left ankle and limp. I was fine after the half marathon on Saturday. What happened? Still have sore throat. DD and Gwen have been diagnosed with strep. I am really disappointed that my plan to start conc... Read more

I just signed up for the Red Ribbon Half Marathon on November 11, 2017. It was half off today, so a real bargain. I have faith that I'll be able to run again next year at age 68. I honestly hope there is more competition in my age group next yea... Read more

I'm resting and recovering. So glad I ran the half marathon yesterday. My back is not hurting and I feel really relieved that I guessed right on the level of activity my body could handle. I'm glad that I trained well from June until October 8th... Read more

The day was gorgeous. I heard it was 58 degrees at the starting gun, and I would guess it was 65 degrees at the finish. I saw a beautiful sunrise during my third mile: ... Read more

Since achieving my weight goal in March of 2009, this year has been my most challenging year. Here is my WeightGrapher chart, showing where I worked to lose weight, but finally decided my goal of 126 was too ambitious (I got to 127, but never go... Read more

No, I did not mean politically conservative in my blog yesterday. I meant conservative in the sense of conserving, specifically conserving or sparing my back, like "conservative medicine" which I think of as being patient and not over treating. ... Read more

Good News: My back does not hurt this morning! I got away with running after a 3 week hiatus and not following the doc's recommendation to "ease back into running" as well as I probably should have. So I ran-walked the 10K yesterday, abandoning... Read more
10K Trophy
Saturday, November 05, 2016      16 comments

As I stated in my status, I was just feeling too good at the 10K to stick to walking as I had planned. I started 4th from the last participant. I passed at least 50 people during the race and that was fun! I ran-walked with more walk than run an... Read more
It Takes 24

Enjoyed local SparkTeam dinner last eve a whole lot. My 23 hours and 50 minute blog was discussed and the suggestion was made that even 23 hours and 55 minutes of healthy living a day is not enough. It takes 24! Total commitment. Relentless dete... Read more

Right now, with a healthy eating day behind me, I am feeling strong and focused on being healthy. The chocolate candy above the bread box is not calling me. The ice cream in the freezer is not tempting me. The crunchy peanut butter will stay on ... Read more

Walking Fun
Friday, October 28, 2016      14 comments

No child care duties this morn, so I hit the trail early. Walked my warm up mile in 14:29. Then I walked a full 10K as fast as I could comfortably, finishing in 1 hour, 21 minutes and a few seconds for a 13:10 pace. Cooled down at just over 16 m... Read more
