Some Half Marathon Comments
Sunday, November 24, 2013      23 comments

*My ride showed up, almost on time, and got us to the expo in plenty of time to pick up our packets. *Didn't have to sleep on the floor. Someone I don't know didn't show up and I got the bed meant for her. *Two cats visited me in the middle ... Read more
Dancing, Visiting, Park and a Half

Hubby and I had a swing lesson Tuesday evening. I remember the SparkFriend (you know who you are, W.E.) who said she and her husband had taken lots of ballroom dancing lessons, but never seemed to remember and get any better. We may be in that s... Read more

I'm Over It
Monday, November 18, 2013      28 comments

I'm over my bad attitude. I felt sheepish and petty reading posts from people who have or have had major health issues while I complain about wrinkles and a diagnosis. The doctor didn't even put me on meds for blood pressure. I should look at it... Read more
Health and Vanity Motivators
Sunday, November 17, 2013      26 comments

I haven't blogged for a couple days. I'm in the lull between 2 half marathons 15 days apart. Yesterday was a rainy, grey-sky day and I wasn't my usual upbeat, cheerful self. Health is a tremendous motivator to me and I was really disappoint... Read more

All Recovered Except One Toe
Tuesday, November 12, 2013      23 comments

Run this morning felt great! I even went a little faster than I had planned just because I felt like it. I definitely have my energy back and my muscles seem to be recovered from the half marathon on Saturday. The one problem I have is a sore to... Read more

So Glad to Be a Runner
Sunday, November 10, 2013      26 comments

Want to get the feel of running a half marathon? Here is a video clip that the pace group leader for the run 30 sec/walk 30 sec got in four different locations. One non-runner took one section and her hubby ran back after finishing to get the e... Read more
Bonus Blog: The Cheering Crowds
Saturday, November 09, 2013      20 comments

As we were running the inaugural Lakeland Red Ribbon Half Marathon, some of the people whose neighborhoods we ran through really got into it. There were some great signs. My favorite, though, was the family that gave out ice cold paper towels ar... Read more

Focus Got Blurry There For a Few Hours
Friday, November 08, 2013      29 comments

I'm not repetitive, I'm focused. Watermellen said so and she's really smart! Counting down, now less than 24 hours until my half marathon. Last night, though, I had far more excitement than I expected. I have to say my focus got kind of b... Read more
