Well I hit my goal last year and I maintained pretty well! This summer's indulgence got away with me a little bit though, and I gained 10 lbs.

So I'm back again to start being more conscious again.

I'm training for a couple runs coming up. I have a 10k in about 3 weeks (mid-October 2014), and a half-marathon in March. I'm really nervous about the half-marathon!

In the time since I've last logged in, I've switched careers and moved countries! I am now a full time physics teacher and I live in Germany (near the border with the Czech Republic). I am absolutely loving my life here (though the beer isn't helping with my weight maintenance)... but I've met several friends who are all living healthy lifestyles, and one of who has turned out to be the PERFECT running partner for me, so I feel very lucky!

    Thank you! I know it is so hard when there is an injury! Why does life have to be all or nothing? Why can't we just feel better to run!?
    Today it is going to 96, so i don't know how much I can do without having a heat stroke. The temp. isn't bad but it gets so damn humid its hard to breathe even without smokes!

    yes i am here. Had a rough week last week. Me and the hubbs were fighting, and i didn't do a damn thing. i have serious issues when i get mad i smoke. NOW after not exercising for a week, and smoking, i feel like I am staring over again. I don't know what is worse, smoking or eating. Yes i know what is worse, but i do that cuz i don't want to eat. anyway, I am going out today.
    Enough about e. zHow have u been? donig Jillian? I can only handle her in little bits. Her vocie drives me nuts, or something makes me batty.
    I will be walking on breaks and running at noon. Hope u have a good day!
