Monday, February 02, 2009      3 comments

When I wrote my New Year's Resolutions, I mentally gave myself a month to get my rear in gear and be functional with all the resolutions. So - a monthly check-up to see how I'm doing seems like a good idea if I'm going to really consider these ... Read more

Look back and figure out what worked before... and then what needs to be done to make things work now. Three times in 10 years I've trimmed 20-25 pounds. The first time was to avoid having to start cholesterol medication in my 40's. Focus... Read more
Turkey Trot 2008
Friday, November 28, 2008      1 comments

Ahh, the Turkey Trot. Lots of mixed emotions this year - don't want to overstress the ankle now that I've realized how fragile it is, and the weather reports were not good. But DD got all enthusiastic about it and we arranged to pick up two of... Read more

Just spent two hot and humid days sitting in the sun watching our daughter run her very last track meets. Making sectionals is a big deal in our area and she qualified for 3 events (more than anyone else on the team). I really wanted her to do... Read more
Spectator Report

Spectating... Drove down pretty leisurely from Buffalo to Cleveland and got in touch with Denise by cell phone so we could coordinate meeting at the expo. Recognized her after a minute or two (she's growing out her hair, so it didn't match... Read more

So, the long-awaited visit with the ortho. I realized that in my heart I was expecting this appointment to magically cure me. I my head I was hoping for a definite diagnosis, clear plan of treatment and MOST IMPORTANT a timetable of when to ex... Read more
Waiting and waiting...

3 days until the Ortho appt. DD was amazed and couldn't figure out why I'd need to see an ortho (she was thinking orthodontist, and I was talking orthopedist!) Ankle is still sore, but sneaking out for a few non-compliant runs has made me ... Read more
And now I can't

Bummer. The slow soreness that's been developing after getting new shoes in January is now too bad to be ignored. About a week after the 'because I can' motivational inspirational moment happened, I had to admit that the pain throughout the da... Read more
Running for Deanna because I can
Monday, March 03, 2008      1 comments

When people ask why I run there are lots of reasons that I can give them - health, enjoyment, strength, being able to eat ice cream, never wanting to die, etc. But often I say - because I can. Most people don't seem to get it. Today a dea... Read more
Run in Central Park
Saturday, February 23, 2008      6 comments

It had rained earlier in the day, but the forecast was for colder weather tomorrow, so I decided today was the day to run in Central Park. The air was humid with just-fallen rain, and cool but not clammy. Wind-pants and jacket seemed ... Read more

Turkey trot today - new PR of 48:26! Actually, I'd hoped for a better one, but was really mentally wimping out in the last mile. Very annonying, but still, a PR is a PR! Ran with my daughter and her boyfriend. He got into the spirit of t... Read more

Sunday, September 16, 2007      8 comments

I thought I'd lost my cheering gallery when I told my husband that "very early" meant we had to leave the house by 5:30 am at the latest. His jaw dropped, but he and my daughter pulled it together and were ready to roll this morning (although I... Read more

Ran a 5K on my son's college campus - I'd challenged him to run with me when he started doing the treadmill in January for his New Year's get fit resolution. My daughter ran with him to talk and encourage him - she's a fast XC runner, but... Read more
