My oldest is returning to college in a couple of weeks. Last year she made it through without any loans. She has a soccer scholarship that helps with costs. However, this year she did have to take out a Stafford Student Loan this year. T... Read more

I ran 9.5 miles last night. It was a beautiful night for a "long" run. Long in my book, anyway. Tonight I went with my daughter to "the stairs." Here she put me through her college cross fit conditioning workout. Thirty minutes of high he... Read more

My body is driving me crazy. I am running three days a week and normally, I'd lose about five pounds. I haven't lost a single one! I've looked over the list of symptoms for perimenopause and I have many of them. Here's my "struggle." ... Read more

I ran the Canal Run in Hancock, MI yesterday. It was a beautiful run with trees, the canal, a wide variety of houses, and a nice overcast sky. A lot of cool things to look at during the run. Most of the run was a nice gentle downhill g... Read more

Today was a pretty low key day. A walk with the dog, mindful eating without obsessing about calories, and a little last minute Yooper food. Tomorrow is my next HM. We drove the route and it is beautiful! It should be a nice run with lo... Read more

The increase in calories has been offset by the fitness minutes! I'm right in a "happy place" with my weight. I'm still in the maintenance challenge and very happy with where I'm at on the scale! I'll keep doing what I'm doing and I should b... Read more
