I rode my bike a long way!

Since the outside of my knee is still sore, even without running for a week, I decided to go for a bike ride. I just got on and started pedaling and let the bike take me "where it wanted to." I ended up riding 17.37 miles. It was a good ... Read more
I will never, ever do that again!

I thought I did pretty well on calories. I went over, but not by much. I ate a LOT of veggies, probably too much. Small servings of all the "good stuff," but I know it all adds up. I weighed myself this morning, just to see and I was up 3 lbs... Read more
Day of gratitude!

Today is a day of reflection, gratitude and family. I am very blessed in so many ways. Do I have everything I want, no. Do I have everything I need, YES! I have loved ones around me, friends that accept and support me, food on the table, and ... Read more
I think I did it again.

I now have a pain behind/along the outside of my right knee. I think it started when I slipped on the ice walking the dogs. Frequent long runs probably didn't help. I was going to go on a short 4.55 mile run tonight, but I couldn't run ve... Read more

First, thank you all Sparkler's for the advice, products recommendations, and concern about me running in the winter. I will take it all to heart and investigate those products. On a good note, it was chilly here today, teens to low twenti... Read more

I walked my normal 20-30 minutes this morning at work. I always walk with a coworker. My youngest and I just took the dogs on their 2.42 mile walk. It was COLD! ... Read more

Well, my stomach isn't as tough as I thought. I've had major heartburn since last night's run. Oh well, live and learn. I was going to take today off, but winter weather is moving in tomorrow so I ran tonight. One of my shorter runs 4.55... Read more
Ran for my dinner, literally.

I was meeting a friend at Panera's to go over some ideas for our next therapy dog class. I decided that if I was going to get a run into tonight, I'd have to be a little creative. So, I ran to the restaurant. It was 4.65 miles and I made it t... Read more
A new respect for triathlon training.

Yesterday, I decided that since I was going to the barn I may as well use it as a workout. So I rode my bike. It was a little over 10 miles and I run that quite frequently, so I thought it would be no big deal, right? Besides, when you ride a b... Read more
I ate too much!

Yesterday, the hubby and I went with friends to the Nebraska game. It was a fun time, despite the score. However, I haven't been to many games and thus didn't plan very well. I had a decent breakfast before we left the house at 11:00 AM.... Read more
A glorious run!

Tonight I wanted to go on a long run. It was a beautiful night! The moon was almost full, the temps were in the 50's and I just felt like running. (Did I just quote Forrest Gump?) So out the door I went and it was a glorious run! 10.78... Read more

I had my first surprise of the season, I DO like to run when it's colder out! I thought I'd hate it, but I like it. Oh, it's pretty chilly at first and I'm still playing with how many layers where, but I had a great run last night. I only ran ... Read more

I started my day with a nice 9.4 mile run. I wanted to go farther, but I had some things I needed to get done today. It was a beautiful day for a run. I ran down a road that I used to ride my horse down all the time. It brought back pleasant... Read more
Right back at it.

First, thanks for all the positive energy and supportive comments. I really wasn't worried about returning to work because I work with some ... Read more
The truth is....

I couldn't say much and still really can't, but the truth is I haven't been at work for a week. I believe much of this, if not all of it, stems from my former colleague. All of the "complaints" were unfounded and no shred of truth could be fou... Read more
