I ran 2.5 miles with my daughters. I'll admit their pace is much slower than mine. In fact, my oldest told me that I was running "race pace" when we first started. I slowed down and kept pace with her until the end, when I sprinted to our sta... Read more

Well we made it to the Upper Peninsula of Michigan where my husband's family is from. It's in the 60's to low 70's here. I think I should have brought more jeans!! The girls and I are going to go running in the morning. We plan on runn... Read more

I'm getting back in my groove. I'm eating well, running again, the scale is being kind, my measurements are good, my vitals and lab tests were really good at my last annual doctor visit. So what is happening to me? All of a sudden it seem... Read more

I was able to run again today. I went a little over 4 miles, but I am walking the hills (mainly downhill) and walking a longer warm up. It feels good, but I'm amazed at how fast my body "lost" it's endurance. My breathing was fine, but I had a... Read more
The day is much brighter today!

I've had several good events happen in the last 24 hours. First, I RAN!!! It was only two miles, but I RAN! It felt so good and I met a person that gave me some great advice on technique, pacing and training. He is 60 years old and still co... Read more

I've been taking a break from running for two reasons. The first was to give my IT band a rest and the second was for my tattoo to heal. I've decided that my break will be over soon. I have been really tired lately and I think it's because I'... Read more

After cooling down and looking at my "new" portrait tattoo again, I realize it's good....it's was just better before. At least in my opinion. Here is the before and after. The newest one is the one with the dates. ... Read more

I was going to post a picture of my new ink and I was comparing it to the older portrait and now I'm so disappointed! It's the same artist, but when she went back through and added color, she lost detail. I didn't realize it until I compared t... Read more
New ink and being judged.

I LOVE my new ink! My artist did a huge touch up on the portrait of my horse that was already on my back. It was a cover up so it needed a "second coat." She added my double rainbow and cloud scene above my girl. (The night my horse died the... Read more

It's been a busy week. Kids' physicals, my physical, physical therapy and a follow up visit for my son has kept me hopping. The horse also needed some dental work! I still can't run. I didn't push it this week as we are leaving this afte... Read more
A crazy workout that was a good deed, too.

The good news is that my son is doing pretty darn good after surgery. He went to his first PT visit this morning, so is a little sore. He's tough and was really "pushing." I think he just wants this over. It will be, in a couple of months. ... Read more

Today is a day of celebrating our independence! Independence has a much different meaning today than what this holiday originally celebrated. Today we should be celebrating an independence from old habits that caused us to be unhealthy! ... Read more

I'm getting ready to head to the hospital with my 14 year old son. He has two meniscus tears and his ACL pulled a bone fragment off inside his knee. We have to be there two hours early so we are getting ready to leave. I've packed three ... Read more
I made a mistake!

I made a mistake! My drivers license was up for renewal this year and since I didn't get any tickets, I didn't have to retake any tests. For the sake of convenience I renewed online. (That and my picture was actually decent!) I just received ... Read more
