I've heard running in the fall is so nice. I'm not convinced, yet. I ran this morning and I'm glad my girls gave me a running jacket for my birthday! It was cold, but after a bit I felt good. I'm trying to figure out how to dress for the wea... Read more

Watch out is what I want to shout at drivers. I'm losing count on how many times I've almost been hit while crossing, with the pedestrian light, the street. Tonight it was almost a two for one. One car was rushing up to the stop sign and a se... Read more

It was a whirlwind weekend, but a fun one. Two days at a horse clinic, one wedding, one horse move, and a day of volunteering. It was busy, but fun. The downside of all of this fun was I haven't ran since last Tuesday. I went out for a s... Read more

This week is going to be crazy busy. I'm not sure how much I'll be able to blog. We have a horsemanship clinic this Friday and Saturday so I'm taking Friday off from work. After the clinic we are moving my daughter's horse closer to our house... Read more
There is no such thing as a "bad" run!

I realized today that it will soon be five months since I started running. April 20th was my first "run." It was a little over 2.25 miles and it took me 30 minutes! I've now come to the realization that there is no such thing as a "bad" ... Read more
Should I change my weight goal?
Friday, September 20, 2013      22 comments

As you can see by my ticker, I am way under weight according to my first weight goal. I set my goal at 140 lbs. because, at the time, that is where I thought I could get successfully and for my height it's the "norm." My doctor said that it wo... Read more

I'm not sure if what I do can really be considered training or not, but it's working for me. I try to do a short faster run, a medium run at a good pace and one loonngg run every so many weeks. I also put some sprint sessions in there and I al... Read more

My oldest came home, just for the night, for my birthday. She scored her first college goal on a corner kick. This morning she and I went to watch my younger daughter run cross country. She did a good job and even had a bit of a "kick" ... Read more

Another revolution around the sun has happened. This is the 46th time for me. I look back on my life and I'll have to say that I'm pretty happy with it! I looked in the mirror this morning and yes, there are a few more wrinkles around the eye... Read more
I left a Spark Team.

I had been a member of a spark team for quite a while. On two different occasions I tried to meet up with members when I was in the area. Both times, I got a very limited response. There is very little activity on the team site and hardly anyo... Read more
Needing to eat more?
Sunday, September 08, 2013      11 comments

A "runner" friend of mine asked me if I was eating enough. I have been losing about a pound a week for the last couple, so I was honest. We talked about the importance of feeding our bodies and she suggested not more food, but higher calorie f... Read more

I ran 9.54 miles this morning. I was having a mini pity party because I wasn't doing a 1/2 marathon that several of my SparkFriends were running. I really wanted to be there and I know I could have done it! So I went out around 9:30 and ran... Read more
I wonder why....

As I was driving home from a visitation, I drove past a hospital. It was after 7:00 PM so nurses were walking to their cars along the busy street. I couldn't help notice that 8 out of 10 of the nurses were overweight. I wonder if it's b... Read more

Last night we ended up riding about 6 miles. It was a humid night, but the breeze made the bike ride quite pleasant. Tonight my oldest, back from college, and I went for a run. She had to go easy since she played in a game on Friday and s... Read more
