Thank you all for the support for my 1/2 lunacy! (I wish I could have figured out the horizontal picture, but oh well.) I think this is the one aspect of Spark that still catches me by surprise...the positive support! When I first joined... Read more

I picked up my packet for the Lincoln 1/2 Marathon that I'm running tomorrow. The friend that I signed up with wasn't going to run it, but now she's going to do it...by walking! I'm so proud of her. I know she'll finish. We walked throug... Read more

I'm hoping to get a short run in tomorrow night. Then, Saturday morning I go down to Lincoln to pick up my packet. I hope to see Onekidsmom there. Sunday will be my third 1/2 marathon, the second in two weeks. I'm not concerned about time... Read more

Now that I've had a decent nights sleep and time to think, I am very happy with our race. We basically faced every type of weather, minus snow, and we kept going. We were dehydrated and we kept going. We were depleated in the way of ... Read more
What a race!

What a race we had! We had a two hour delay due to weather. Lightning, thunder and wall clouds with the wind changing directions every 10 or 15 minutes. We finally were able to line up. It began hailing and raining. By now everyone wa... Read more

Thanks to one of my students, I now am sick. Sharing is not always good! Last week, he had a green nose and of course he would wipe it down his arms so we would have to clean him up. Add sneezing and blowing it around the room and two student... Read more

A year of changes.

No matter if you believe in calendars (the Year of the Horse), astrology (the blood moon), or "just in life" we all know that change is a constant. Nothing ever stays the same. Sometimes this change is gradual, under our control and purpo... Read more
Let go. Be

I love the saying,"Let go. Be." If you google it, there is a site all about the meaning behind it and products you can buy to remind you. It has become my mantra. I had a bracelet with the saying on it, now I have it as a tattoo on my left wr... Read more

It's kind of strange how we all have a "new way of life." At first we struggle and stumble, but soon it becomes second nature. We no longer have to think about it, as much. We will always have to put some mental effort into eating the right f... Read more
