A night bike ride!
Friday, August 30, 2013      7 comments

Ok, I'm not resting, but my bro-in-law called and invited me to a night bike ride. So my younger daughter and I are off to meet him and my nephew. I'll tell how it went tomorrow.... Read more
I lied!

I lied! There I admitted it and I said it! I told myself that I would take a few days off of running since it's been so hot and humid, but I didn't! I went out and ran 5.58 miles around 6:00 PM. It was hot and humid, but I this was a "mental... Read more
Hot run last night.

I only ran 3.42 miles last night and had a pace of around 9:46 minute miles. It was really humid and I was sweating by the time I got back. This route has some small hills, so I ran them. I did keep an easy pace because of the heat and my ham... Read more

Saturday I got to watch my oldest play in her first college soccer game. She was one of only two freshmen that started and the only one to play the entire 90 minutes of the game and 10 minutes of overtime. She looked like she fit right in! It... Read more

After my "mental run" the other night, I told my younger daughter the next time I'm running and in my "zone" I'm going to just keep going. That's what I did tonight! ... Read more
A "mental run"

I wasn't going to run tonight. It's really humid and I've been pretty tired lately. However, my younger daughter wanted some company when she went to check her horse, so I went. Once we got to the barn, I started running the way we had c... Read more
An interesting Sunday!

I told you about the second part of my morning, but I didn't tell you about the first part. I had to greet at church on Sunday morning so I was there a bit early. I said good morning to the senior pastor and she commented on my weight. The... Read more

We all have labels. Wife, mother, daughter, coworker, boss, etc. Today I rode my bike 12 miles and saw lots of "labels." There were the walkers, the runners, the cyclists, the parents with little kids, the parents with furkids, aka. dogs, etc... Read more
A day of "different running."

I did take the dogs for their walk, but other than that today was a day of "different running." My husband was off, which is a rarity, so we ran errands all day. Cost Co, the grocery store, bakery thrift store, checking on the horse, and gett... Read more

Do you ever take a day off?
Wednesday, August 14, 2013      12 comments

I was wondering if anyone takes a "real" day off? What I mean, is not doing any exercising for an entire day. Even when I take a "day off," I always walk. I was going to ride my bike tonight but it got dark early with the cloud cover. ... Read more
Feeling old today!

I feel old today. No, I don't hurt, ache or feel icky. I just feel old. Why you ask? I feel old because I had to buy a pair of "cheaters" to use at home. Both my husband and me are seeing the eyes aging and the arms not being long enough to... Read more
I overdid it, but I got a new bike!

Yesterday I went for a long run, 6.5 miles. (I know Barb! I was supposed to go 5.5, but I couldn't figure out a route.) I started out too fast, but adjusted my pace. I started later than I had planned and it was getting hot by 1/2 way through.... Read more
I used to be one of "those people."
Saturday, August 10, 2013      13 comments

As I run, I let my mind wander. Today I noticed the people watching me run by. I got a few waves, one "I think I know you" honk and lots of "that is crazy" looks. The other thing that I noticed was how many people participate in unhealthy be... Read more
