Saturday, June 15, 2013      23 comments

Thanks for your help and suggestions regarding my toe issue. Yes, my second toe is slightly longer than my big toe. I also have two huge bunions so I am difficult to fit, but I did buy new shoes today at our local running store. I had to wait ab... Read more
Endorphins, a Mixed Blessing
Thursday, June 13, 2013      18 comments

Monday when I ran it felt so good. It had to be an endorphin rush. A few minutes after I was done, though, the second toe on my left foot started throbbing. I did not feel any problem at all during the run. If it wasn't for the endorphins I prob... Read more

This morning I was smiling at the scale. I hadn't weighed in a week. I hadn't tracked for several days. I had indulged for my husband's birthday on June 3rd (I made the cake with delicious chocolate butter cream icing), my birthday on June 6th, ... Read more

Feeling Good Wednesday
Wednesday, May 29, 2013      26 comments

I'm feeling pretty good. I have to poke around in my glute and shoulder in order to even find a sore spot now. So part of me is ready to run right now. However, my best judgment is I should wait at least a week to even think about it. I co... Read more

Activities for Healing
Sunday, May 19, 2013      20 comments

Did a 75 minute walk this morning. I used the Kathy Smith one hour walking workout on my MP3 player and felt downright sentimental. Hadn't used that one for several years. I remember when that was a challenging workout, especially the 4 minutes ... Read more
