What goes down...
Saturday, September 06, 2008      0 comments

I went on a 3 hour hike today with the girls. I tried to find someone to go with me, but none of my friends were able to. I'm so glad I didn't let that stop me from going! It was nice and I found out that my 2 year old actually makes some g... Read more

Sunday, August 31, 2008      2 comments

So yesterday I ran 23 miles in a little under 4 hours. At some point during the run, probably around mile 18 or 19 I really had to ask myself, "Why do you continue to do this to yourself every other week?" Kind of humorous... I guess t... Read more
Swimming... Blech!
Wednesday, August 27, 2008      1 comments

So I should be really positive here, because at least I put my face in the water today... that's an improvement! But it seemed to be a lot harder to do the crawl that way than keeping my face out of the water! I bought a book, and I'm tryin... Read more

You may be in one of two categories. Either you've never heard of a push bike or you've heard of one and think they're really expensive. There's many different brands, some are wood and some are aluminum... some are over a thousand dollars,... Read more

So I went swimming for an hour last night! It felt good, weird, but good. And I ran 2 miles. My legs still hurt from my half on Sunday, but only when I go down stairs. :) So this swimming thing, why does it have to be so elusive. There are ... Read more
Haulin' Aspen Half
Sunday, August 10, 2008      2 comments

Yay, my first half! I finished and I didn't fall. Two goals I had! I studied the times of past athletes and figured I'd run this around 2 minutes slower per mile than my 5K. That's what ended up happening... 2h 17m... I did have a lofty goa... Read more
