I was doing a nice taper run last night. As I was running, I ran in front of a SUV that one of my former students and his mom were in. She had her son refrain from yelling at me because, "I looked like I was really into it." Wow, I never thoug... Read more

Today I went on my last "longer" run before my 1/2 next weekend. As I ran, I thought about how much I have learned the past few years in regards to my health. When I was younger, I could eat anything I wanted and not gain an ounce. I was ... Read more

Our pup finally is out of his splints. Six weeks is finally over! He still has to be on crate confinement for another week and keep the donut around his neck, but he can walk on his own. He has a sore on his leg from the splints rubbing, but ... Read more

I looked up the difference between the Asics 19 and 21. It looks like the 21 is the newest one and has more cushion. I'm ok with that. I was just concerned since I had Peak Performance analyzed my gait and pronation. They had recommended the... Read more
Breaking them in!

I went to the Peak Performance on 78th & Cass to get a new pair of running shoes. The lady helping me was super nice, but they didn't have the shoes I normally wear, but they found a pair out west. So later, I went out to the store on 168th & ... Read more
New shoes?

I was trying to think back to when I purchased my latest pair of running shoes. I know it was before my April 1/2 in Oklahoma. My daughter thought it was February and I thought March. Either way, my feet and legs are telling me it's probably t... Read more

The weather went from 90's yesterday to upper 60's today. I knew tomorrow is jammed pack with things I have to get done, so I went on a run tonight. It was one of those runs that you hope for! It was a longer one of almost 7 1/2 miles. T... Read more

This week just flew by! I can't believe tomorrow is Friday. As a recovery week, it was a good one. Monday I used my elliptical for 30 minutes on the weight loss setting. I was sweating buckets! It still amazes me how a person can be in ... Read more

I'm not sure how everyone feels about "life" and the circumstances that come with it, but yesterday had a great ending to a near perfect day! My friend that I walked the 1/2 Marathon with, met me at "coffee shop church." She had been wanti... Read more
A perfect day!

It couldn't have been a better day for my friend's first 1/2. It was cloudy day and the storm that went around us took all the humidity with it. She wore appropriate clothing and looked cute with her now 4 month baby bump. We started out s... Read more

After watching my oldest play soccer at her college, we drove out to pick up my packet, and my friends's, for tomorrow's 1/2 marathon. It was in the country with lots of beautiful hills. The ladies working the table were so friendly! This race... Read more

Yesterday was my 21st anniversary. My hubby put a really cute picture and sentiment on Facebook. I know that I am really blessed with the man that I married. He's put up with me and all my "busy." Over the years I've stayed busy with horses, d... Read more

Before I got a chance to read the responses from my lost blog, I decided to change up my workout. After talking to other healthy people, and now reading your responses, that is what I thought I should do. So I did my normal 40 minutes wa... Read more

I was talking to a friend about the "plateau" I've been on. I eat within my calorie range and I'm running three to four times a week, plus walking at least fives times a week for 40 minutes and my weight is still on the upper end of my range. ... Read more
I changed three times.

It was my last "longer" run before my 1/2 marathon on Sunday. Remember I am walking this one with a friend of mine that has back problems and is 3 month pregnant. Her doctor gave her the all clear as long as she walks. I hope she can keep up. ... Read more
