Spent time with my oldest.
Tuesday, May 28, 2013      8 comments

I went running with my oldest daughter tonight. We ran 2.76 miles in 29:34 for a 10:43 minute mile. Not the fastest, but it was really nice to run with her. I worked on my form as we ran and taking deeper breaths. When we were done, we... Read more
Ate bad last night, but made up for it today!
Monday, May 27, 2013      4 comments

I "binged" last night. I ate to eat. I wasn't hungry, but I ate for "taste." I went to bed bloated and feeling gross. Woke up this morning and had a light breakfast of fruit and coffee. Headed to the barn with the younger daughter. I r... Read more
Looking back!
Sunday, May 26, 2013      8 comments

Looking back I can see how fast time has gone. I'm pleased that I have not "wasted" much time and have many, many wonderful memories. My kids are all past the "kid" stage and it does bring a tear to think of how fast they have grown. ... Read more
I have a high school graduate and a college woman now!

My oldest graduate from high school last night and today was her party. The weather was perfect even though we had rain last night and this morning. We figured about 150 ... Read more
I ran my farthest route to date!
Thursday, May 23, 2013      13 comments

I thought it, I was determined and I did it! I ran my longest route to date, 7.45 miles and I did it in 70 minutes. That comes to a 9.24 minute mile. I was pretty proud of my time! (At least I'm consistent.) I got a bad side ache abo... Read more
I ran for my cousin in Oklahoma.

I have two cousins and their families in Moore, OK. They are all safe! Their houses are all standing with minor damage. The tornado missed my younger cousin's house by only six blocks. She and her husband were very worried about their two do... Read more
I can't run with others. Does this mean I'm an "antisocial runner?"
Saturday, May 18, 2013      20 comments

My oldest ran with me this morning and we've discovered that I can't run with others. She "throws off" my pace. I felt like I was running really slow! We both agree that hearing each other breathe also is disruptive to "our own run." I'm gla... Read more
I ran, but I still don't feel 100%.

We've had way too many "extra" food at work this week. I don't eat a lot, but a bite here and a bite there add up. I've only gone over my calories once, but I can tell my body isn't used to eating "junk." ... Read more
No voice!

I have lost my voice and my energy. emoticon I am very tired so no running! Last night we had the girls' soccer ... Read more
I ran 6 miles!
Monday, May 13, 2013      16 comments

I ran my first 6 mile route tonight! I didn't "time" myself, but it looks like I ran it in around 65 minutes. I was surprised that I wasn't sucking wind, but that my body was the "issue." I guess this tells me that I can go faster, but ... Read more
Mother's Day!

First Happy Mother's Day to all moms! That includes those that have given birth, adopted, fostered, have been a birth mother, and those that have fur kids. I include Godmothers, aunties, cousins, and anyone who is like a "second mom." I r... Read more
My best, yet!

Yesterday I ran my 4.25 in 40 minutes. That came to 9.25 minute mile. I'm still trying to figure out this running thing. I knew I started out to fast because I was "dying." I had to walk more often, but i would do it for a shorter distance. ... Read more
I've missed it!
Friday, May 10, 2013      8 comments

Ok, I'll admit it...I've missed running! We've had scholarship presentations and honors night the past two evenings so I haven't been able to run. I still can't believe I'm saying this, but I missed it! My "running cousin" who does mara... Read more
An "easy" run!
Tuesday, May 07, 2013      17 comments

My oldest daughter and I decided to run to the post office to mail some graduation announcements. It's 3.25 miles round trip. It has a few hills, but they aren't too bad. She is not in "running shape" as she puts it. Soccer season just ended ... Read more
The sun is out and I ran!
Monday, May 06, 2013      12 comments

The weather finally turned nice so I ran my longest distance to date 4.25 miles! Dumb me, I didn't look at the clock before I left so I am estimating my time by when my daughter was talking to my mom on the phone. I'm thinking 50-55 minutes. ... Read more
