September 10, 2007 Well, I hate to say it, but I just don't have time to be active on Spark right now. I started a new job about a month ago and now have precisely zero personal time. Someday I'll get back! Just as a small update: ... Read more

"It's not the team that wants to win that wins. It's the team that wants to win, and is willing to work at it, that wins." -- Vince Lombardi I checked the book "Body-for-Life for Women" out from the library. More and more, I know that the... Read more
USMC PFT Challenge
Sunday, July 29, 2007      0 comments

A while back in here, I wondered whether I had what it takes to be a Marine. Not that I'm looking to join up-- I just want to know if, fitness-wise, I could hack it. So I started a challenge in the Hard-Corps team to try the USMC Physical ... Read more

Bragging on myself here. Recall that I had to repeat the mile run every year of high school gym class because I couldn't make it in 15 minutes. Definitely not a born runner here! Today, after I dropped off my daughter at camp, I decid... Read more

The Great Luna Bar Flavor Experiment
Wednesday, June 27, 2007      14 comments

I've decided eating a protein bar every now and then would be a good addition to my eating habits. I've never been a great fan of the protein bar, but I'm going to at least try it out. Based solely on popularity and nothing more, I'm going wit... Read more

No career change plans on the horizon, but I ran across the fitness requirements for marines today (I was searching for the weight requirements, since I had seen reference to them before). They are here: http://usmilitary.about.com/od
