Out for a week
Saturday, April 04, 2009      4 comments

I have an injury to my right gluteal/piriformis muscle. It is so painful. My running coaches told me not to run for a week, and they also said NOT to do the long one next week (it's the 20). I am very sad. But, they are assuring me that it... Read more

I guess I should put a race report in here...
Monday, March 30, 2009      2 comments

Yesterday I ran the Heart Mini Marathon 15K. It was honestly the worst race I have ever run. I felt like it was my first run ever in life. My pace was 10:48. Now, some of you are probably saying that's OK, but I have run 10K's at 8:47, so ... Read more
Chicago R & R half...
Monday, March 16, 2009      4 comments

Well, I am going to blog about this, because I think I'm going to sign up for it. My husband wants us to take a weekend trip by train somewhere - he doesn't really care where, but he just wants to ride on a train. So, I said maybe I'll run the... Read more
Race Report - Carrot Run (Strides of March)
Monday, March 09, 2009      3 comments

Well, I didn't PR this weekend, but I still did a decent job in my 10K - it was about 60 degrees at the start, and I wasn't really ready for that kind of heat. The race started with me running my first two miles at 8:26 pace - way too fast for ... Read more
My Hill Workout
Friday, March 06, 2009      1 comments

I haven't blogged in a couple weeks, so here goes. Wednesday night my running group did a hill workout. It consisted of a 1 mile warmup, 5 hill repeats (they were 0.6 miles) and 1 mile back to where we started. Well, let me say that I don... Read more
Could my scale be broken???
Friday, February 13, 2009      4 comments

Kind of strange that I would write this - I have been so obsessive compulsive about my weight, and inability to lose it. But, I weighed myself this morning and it said 148.4 - on January 1, it said 158. So, that means that in 6 weeks (more or ... Read more
Another random blog...
Monday, January 26, 2009      5 comments

OK I haven't blogged in a while, and this one will be short. I admire those of you who are daily bloggers, but I don't have time to do that during the school year. I just have three things to say, not related to my fitness/weight loss/marathon... Read more
Happy New Year! (A totally random blog)
Wednesday, January 07, 2009      2 comments

I haven't blogged in a while, and so many Spark Friends have wished me a Happy New Year that I want to wish the entire Spark Community a Happy New Year. The holidays did some damage to me - I gained about 7 pounds through them. But, this... Read more
Being Honest with myself
Sunday, December 14, 2008      6 comments

I need to be honest with myself about my eating habits. I have not really lost any weight in the two years since I started running. I know, I have probably lost body fat and gained muscle mass and it shows up as no net weight loss. This bein... Read more
All clear!
Wednesday, December 10, 2008      4 comments

OK, to make a long story short, there's really nothing wrong with my hip - no stress fracture, no tendinitis, no bursitis, no nothing! The pain has started to alleviate with less running, so I guess my last race (Thanksgiving) really took it ou... Read more
I know this for sure about my MRI
Thursday, December 04, 2008      4 comments

The only thing that I really know about the MRI is that I can see many of my insides - it's really kind of cool. As far as what I'm looking at, I couldn't really say what it means. I have looked at it after looking online at MRI images of stre... Read more
I am afraid of my MRI
Tuesday, December 02, 2008      3 comments

I am not exactly sure what to think/feel about having this MRI tomorrow. I don't want my hip to be stress fractured, but the doctor ordered the MRI to be sure. I love running and dont' want to stop doing it - I want to be prepared to train for... Read more
New 10K PR!
Friday, November 28, 2008      6 comments

Yesterday, I ran the 99th Annual Thanskgiving Day 10K in Downtown Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky. It started off with waking up at 6:30 and some last-minute Thanksgiving prep - tearing 4 loaves of stale bread into tiny pieces to make stuffing. I... Read more
Andy Geil 5K race report
Saturday, November 15, 2008      6 comments

Started my morning with a cuppa pumpkin spice coffee and a small cup of cereal. My DH, my son and I went over to St. William to sign up for the race - I didn't find out about it in time to get the cheaper price, but that's OK - the money was go... Read more
