Persevere
Wednesday, January 20, 2010      11 comments

Persevere:to persist in a state, enterprise, or undertaking in spite of counter influences, opposition, or discouragement. My sister and some work friends have been choosing a word for the year. Just one word to sum up their focus, hopes, d... Read more
Frustration!!!

I am going to keep this short. I've jumped onto my sis' computer while we wait to go running (she needs to complete a few things and then we are off). My power cord to my lap top died and so now I have no internet access from my home computer. F... Read more

Christmas went well. We all had a nice day, ate just a tad too much, but didn't go too far overboard and the kids played with every toy (I always feel bad when a toy gets left out). I got the fleece jacket and vest I wanted from LL Bean. I even ... Read more

Today was a walk day, which was good because I really pushed on the run yesterday and needed a slightly more relaxed workout today. A quick word on the running. After getting up to running 3.1 once a week I started having recurring shin issues (... Read more

Friday, December 18, 2009      8 comments

Short but sweet...this song was the first song to play after I started running this morning and the lyrics really struck the right chord!! The song is Crazy Dreams by Carrie Underwood. Hello, you longshots, you dark horse runners Hairbrus... Read more

Monday, December 14, 2009      6 comments

Friday was a great day. Got up early to go running and found a bit of rain coming down. My sister and I had planned on the possibility of rain and were planning to run anyways so off I went. The short drive across town showed just how variable o... Read more
Stretching myself
Thursday, December 10, 2009      3 comments

Had a great walk this morning. We are supposed to get more rain starting tonight. The forcast is for "showers" so hopefully it will be done or just sprinkling when it is time to run tomorrow. Wednesday's run was crud. My shins didn't want ... Read more
Something about this time of year and finally set the excuses aside.
Wednesday, December 09, 2009      3 comments

There is something about this time of year that brings out the kid in me. Must be the whole Christmas thing. I can't help but feel a little happier when I drive through town and see all the pretty twinkly lights. My three year old is really help... Read more
Love days after rain!!
Tuesday, December 08, 2009      8 comments

I don't know if this is just me and I am perfectly willing to admit I find aspects of myself strange, but I simply LOVE rainy days and more so days after rainy days. I've mentioned before I live in a warm arid area and we don't have a lot of rai... Read more

Its been a long and hard weekend. The good part is that my sister and I went for a hike on Saturday. It was a great hike, one we've done before, but we made REALLY good time. It was a cloudy, gray hike but it was kind of nice. The lake we hike u... Read more
Robert, what did I do to make you mad at me???
Wednesday, December 02, 2009      10 comments

Robert, of course, would be Robert Ullrey, the person who put together the C25K podcast I listen to on run mornings and I must have done something to make him mad because all of a sudden today he stopped speaking to me. We start out on our regul... Read more
November failure = December success.
Tuesday, December 01, 2009      14 comments

Well, I almost didn't blog on this subject today because I really didn't feel like facing facts!! November was not my finest months, but despite this I still feel like I had a great month!! First the bad news. I didn't accomplish much in the way... Read more
Why do I feel the need to justify??
Monday, November 30, 2009      13 comments

It was one of those silly moments that inspires further thought. This morning we (my running partner sister and I) went for a nice little run. I did 2 miles and decided that I didn't want to push my luck after shin discomfort a couple weeks ago ... Read more
