One "upping" or one "downing."
Wednesday, October 08, 2014      8 comments

I've rewritten this blog today and really had to think hard on how to write it. Here is goes. We all know someone that has to "one up" you or "one down" you. If something good happens, they've had something better. If something bad happens... Read more
Sore, but still in good spirits.

Today I had to put shoes on as we had a field trip today. I was fine. However, my left knee decided to complain. It feels like someone kicked me in the kneecap. I'll survive and I'll just give it some rest. Tomorrow I plan on doing an ... Read more
Tired, but good.

I'm a little tired today, but not as sore as I thought I'd be. The legs are a little stiff, but really not bad. I had to wear flip flops to work today as a toe on both feet are red and swollen. (I have one toe that is longer than the others. ... Read more
I did it, with a little help from my friends!

I had a wonderful surprise on the second day of the Double Half Mary! ONEKIDSMOM and SPINNINGJW were there to support and cheer me on! They stuck around the entire race, too! Sparkfriends at their finest! I ran with the same two women tha... Read more
Day 1 is in the books.

Ah, what a morning! My first day of the Double 1/2 Mary is in the books. It was great! I arrived early and was able to use the porta-potty, twice, without having to stand in line. I dressed smart. I wore a long sleeve, Cuddle Duds, with my... Read more
I'm ready as I can be.

I'm as ready as I can be for this weekend. I've prepared as best as I can, I've listened to my body and taken an "extra" off day, I've eaten right, and hopefully I'm ready mentally. I didn't get an easy elliptical workout in last night, bu... Read more
Taper week?
Wednesday, October 01, 2014      10 comments

I still don't know how to do this "running thing" all that well. I don't run negative splits nor do I know what to do during a taper week. It was pouring last night so I did 40 minutes on my elliptical. ONEKIDSMOM was in my head as I did... Read more
I ran from church!

No, it's not what it sounds like. emoticon After church I ran home. It was a little over five miles and I though... Read more
Voted Popular Blog Post: View All Popular Posts A few pounds heavier.

When I originally lost my weight I went 3 to 5 pounds under my goal. It was not a good thing, for me anyway. I looked unhealthy and had the "lollipop look." That's when your head looks big because your body is too skinny, like a lollipop. ... Read more

I still get questioned on my way of eating. The "obsession" with logging what I eat and how much I exercise. The "research" that I do before going to a restaurant. The lack of "drinking" my calories. I'm sure many of you understand. I now... Read more
An easy run. Well, sort of.

I went out for my first run since my HM on Sunday. I went a little under 3 miles and it felt pretty good...until my left leg started complaining. My hamstring, shin and the outer thigh muscle all had something to say. Then, it hit me. I... Read more
Feeling great!

Now I know that my Half Marathon was a success! I feel great! I'm a little sore, but nothing major and it's subsided quickly. I'm taking Monday and Tuesday off and I'll go for a short run on Wednesday. I've already talked to my cousin abo... Read more
Another 1/2 in the books.

Today's Omaha Half Marathon went much better than I had hoped. I didn't beat my personal record of 1:55, BUT I did get my best time for this year...2:01! Yes, I am thrilled with the time! I felt good after the race and gained new respect for ... Read more
Who does this?

Who volunteers for an event that involves LOTS of walking the day before a 1/2 marathon. Oh, that would be me! ... Read more
I'm on my own Sunday.

The friend that was going to run the Omaha 1/2 with me, isn't. I don't blame her. She was waiting to see when her sister's baby shower was going to be and by the time she realized that she could run, the price was too high for her. I to... Read more
