I have new running shoes! With the help of the sales assistant, who runs track at the local division 1 college, I have a new pair of Asics Kayano running shoes. They are "fancy." Teal, pink and yellow in color, but I actually bought them due ... Read more

Maybe I should have said, "I hate walking now that I found running!" I used to love walking and couldn't imagine running. Now, I'm hooked on running and walking just seems too slow. I know it's a good workout as well, I just want to run. Yes, I'... Read more

I thought I'd go out and run a nice easy run. I walked a "long warm up" and walked up the first hill. When I came to the flat I started out running nice and easy. I was on a sidewalk so it was pretty flat. I thought that "I had this." ... Read more

I think I've figured out my knee issue. I am having soreness in the Iliotibial band. It runs down the outside of the knee. I read it is caused by running on roads, running too many miles, running up and down hills, etc. I guess I'm guilty of ... Read more

I did it! Today was "race day" for the Benson's Memorial D-Day Fun Run/Walk. Benson High School's JROTC was invited to march in the 50th Anniversary of D-Day Parade in Normandy France next summer. This run/walk was one of the fundraisers. ... Read more

My knee feels much better today. I'll admit I was going to go run, but I've reconsidered since the advice on my blog said wait to run until Saturday. This is a major accomplishment for me! Normally I read advice, but rarely follow it! ... Read more

My younger daughter had a dressage show. She has been training her horse herself, with friends that ride. Her and her horse, Lady are improving. They consistently were about 58-59% in scores. That's not bad considering we figured out that he... Read more

As I was reading a couple of articles about the different journeys being healthier has taken some people, I realized just how much others "matter." Sometimes, they "matter" in a negative way. Comments spoken by others, the looks that we ge... Read more

I wanted to get a run in before the storms came. I chose a "close" route of 2.78 miles. I ended up running it in 20:03:22 which made a 7:54 minute mile. I definitely pushed myself. I was cramping in the midsection and was a little tired aft... Read more
