Weakness, it is not always what you think
Sunday, April 07, 2013      1 comments

So normally I am a pretty tough gal. I am much easier on others than I am on myself. It is strange how I see an injury in myself as a weakness of my body and character. While thinking about this, I realize that this is completely ridiculous but ... Read more

I have a sore hip~ I have diagnosed myself with a hip flexor strain. I am taking some time off of exercising and running and doing RICE. If I let my hip heal and then strengthen it with exercises and come back slowly, I should be as good as befo... Read more

Sunday morning I awoke with temperatures outside in the mid 40's but rising quickly as the sun came up. Knowing what to wear so that you are comfortable for the race is a challenge for me. I decided on shorts, a sleeveless running top and a long... Read more

This year has been a really wonderful one for me. I will say that there have been up and down moments and highs and lows that are a part of life but quite honestly, life has been good. I checked and my running miles so far for this year were a... Read more

Fessing Up
Tuesday, July 31, 2012      1 comments

So does anyone else have a hard time being honest (fessing up) about an injury or how you are feeling to others and yourself? I don't want to admit to myself that something might not be ok with my body. It is also difficult for me to be honest w... Read more
