Beck Day 40 is about enriching our lives. One of her points is not to put off things until you have lost weight, but to live life and enjoy it! I 100% agree. There isn't anything I'm putting off due to weight or appearance. Come to think of it, ... Read more

Best Running Shoe Ever and Believe Beck
Sunday, April 22, 2018      14 comments

Had a great run in my new Saucony Hurricanes. This must be my 8th pair of this brand/model. This time the sole is a little softer and it ties differently. After my first run, I'm thinking this is the best running shoe I've ever had: ... Read more

Yesterday was a good day here despite the rain and wind. We were lucky -- no tornados here, but certainly feel for the people who suffered devastating losses. Glad we decided not to go to Disney. I am feeling for the Boston marathoners, too. Hop... Read more
