My very first race was the Senior Games 5K in March 2011. The night before I suddenly came down with a stiff neck, sore shoulders, sore hips, and various other aches and pains. My dear daughter, the massage therapist, came and rubbed and bio-fre... Read more
Half Marathon Weather
Thursday, February 20, 2014      14 comments

Sunday's weather for the Disney Princess HM looks pretty good, with a low of 62 degrees and a high of 80. Bet we'll finish before it is 75; maybe just 70. Ideal running weather is 55 degrees, but I'm pretty comfortable running in some heat. The ... Read more
Court Over, Princess Approaching
Wednesday, February 19, 2014      19 comments

I sat in the courtroom for 3 hours yesterday and answered a lot of questions. There were 36 of us questioned. In the end, I wasn't one of the 12 selected to serve. Glad I went. Glad it is over. Glad I'm back to taking care of my dear little girl... Read more
An Even Greater Sitting Challenge, I Suppose
Monday, February 17, 2014      15 comments

I really didn't have to sit too much at the softball game. We sat in the top row with no one behind us, so I could stand a lot. I made a lot of trips to the water fountain, checked out the adjoining baseball field that was empty, got a program f... Read more

I am a runner, but today is a cross training day. Gwen will be going home at 3:30, so I think I'll go to the gym and do an elliptical workout after that. The blister on my left foot is healed and I've decided to wear my well-broken in shoes for ... Read more

Ran four miles this morning in my neighborhood. It was nice to wait until after sunrise and really see where I was going! Temperature was in the low 60's at 8am, so just right for running. The dog ran 1.5 miles of it with me. It was our best att... Read more
Kind of Exciting Day

Pretty exciting day today! First I got back my laptop and it feels great to have my own computer available whenever I want. I have missed it. Feel really behind on my Sparking. Hubby and I have been furniture shopping for several weeks. I h... Read more
Pretty Good

I ran today carefully after the sun rose. I met with my running group at 6am, returned a borrowed jacket, but decided not to run with them due to my recent falls. I chose to run in daylight (7:10am this morning) and on an even surface, the path ... Read more
Again Today

He called it a "Sportsman's Fracture" and spent nearly half an hour doing a "four surface filling." He said any dentist would know from that diagnosis that I broke the corner of my front teeth. Now when I look in the mirror my teeth no longer re... Read more

Since June 2013 I've run 104 times, an estimated 414 miles. That's a whole lot of great running. Honestly I've enjoyed almost every mile. I love getting faster and going farther. I love the companionship of the group runs and getting to go exact... Read more

It hurts to chew a banana right now. Really. I fell during my run this morning. That's 2 falls this running season. Chipped my 2 front teeth this time; some more lip damage. Left hand messed up again, and I had just gotten back to arm strength t... Read more
Challenge Myself and Embrace Each Day

Saw this picture on FaceBook and wondered if I could post it here. Then I saw that it originated on SparkPeople, so I guess I can. Small world. It really speaks to me. Pow... Read more
Let's Count This Run as a Big Success!
Saturday, January 25, 2014      28 comments

Most of my usual Galloway running group members are running Celebration Half Marathon tomorrow, so they didn't run today. Only 2 of our 9 pace groups did run today, and I had my choice of 5 miles really slow or the fastest group (all members who... Read more
