Unexpected Challenging Opportunity
Tuesday, May 07, 2013      24 comments

I got a call from the nonprofit agency I used to direct. They've fired my successor and now they want me to help fix a mess and get things back on track. There are people I would really like to help, but I'm not sure I remember enough to be much... Read more
Better Aquarium Picture

I'm playing around with cropping and opening the front door for my natural light. Let's see: ... Read more
Finished Project
Monday, May 06, 2013      18 comments

I read a signature block, and I don't even remember whose it was, but it said that any day you can run is a great day! I'd been feeling just a bit sorry for myself over the sore rear end muscles, but that saying helped put it in perspective. Tod... Read more
Slow Hills Predicted

Nothing much profound today. I've been eating well the last couple days. Keep this up and I'll be right back to where I want to be weight wise. Then, can I maintain it? We'll see. Took a day of rest today as far as formal exercise goe... Read more
Ideal Weight
Wednesday, May 01, 2013      32 comments

I set a goal to achieve and maintain a weight of 126 by the end of 2013. How am I doing on this goal? It was back in December when I set that goal. I saw that in 2011 I weighed 124-131, while in 2012 I weighed more like 128-134. That is no... Read more

Good news is I ran 3 miles this evening with no real pain and just the hint of soreness in my left glute muscle. I didn't push speed, but ran comfortably at about 9 and a half minute per mile pace. The not so good news is that my running co... Read more
Rest and Reschedule
Sunday, April 28, 2013      22 comments

I've accomplished several tasks that I probably would not have gotten finished had I done my usually run yesterday and all my training this week. For Christmas I was given a big collage frame that holds 25 pictures. Yesterday I got it all the wa... Read more
Rest and Dryer Balls
Friday, April 26, 2013      27 comments

Decided with my coach to continue to rest (not run) until Monday evening when I'll run under her supervision. Although she said I could swim, my sinuses are acting up, too, so I think my activity for today will be housecleaning. My house needs i... Read more
Not the I Word!

I hate to say it, but I'm taking a day of rest. My training schedule has me cycling today, but I'm going to take a pass. Something is just not quite right with my left glute muscle. I'm feeling it now even when I'm not running. May have an issue... Read more
Runners United
Tuesday, April 23, 2013      20 comments

Last evening's Runners Unite for Boston event was moving, which I really did not mean as a pun. That hundreds and hundreds of people showed up for an event that had been publicized only for 48 hours is pretty amazing. People were so touched by t... Read more

Success Team
Friday, April 19, 2013      19 comments

I was invited to join the SP's Official Success Stories team. I suspect that is an honor. I accepted. Not sure exactly what I'm getting into, but I'm sure I'll find out. ... Read more
Refusing to Feel Old Today
Thursday, April 18, 2013      36 comments

When my daughter told me she found 5 grey hairs, it was like I went into denial. I've been grey for quite some time and quit coloring 8 years ago. I've accepted that I'm a grey-headed older woman. I love being a grandmother; I don't mind looking... Read more

Good bike ride this morning. I don't know my exact mileage as I turned around to join some friends for part of the ride. It was at least 16 miles; probably 19. We've been having 90 degree weather, but this morning it was just right for a ride. I... Read more
