What do we want to do? RUN! Why do we want to run? Cause cookies are yummy?

This afternoon I finally found the entrance to the local wetlands and went for a run. It was really nice, very different but (wow, never thought I'd be saying this) it was too short. Jeff and I ended up doing the loop 3 times so that it would... Read more
I like to move it move it

This afternoon I had planned a run with my husband but then things happened. I got a call from my daughter wanting to go for a run and a call from a friend also wanting to go for a run. Challenge accepted! I started out with my dau... Read more
Cold, colder, coldest
Sunday, February 21, 2016      9 comments

Last night I did the "Coldest Night of the Year" race. It was a walking race in the city. I walked with my daughter's MIL (I really need to come up with a shorter name for her). My daughter walked with her brother and her dad (my ex) and did ... Read more
Running a 5K with my grandson
Friday, February 19, 2016      13 comments

Next month my grandson is running his first 5K along side his mom. He called to see if I'd come cheer him on and then got very excited when he found out I'm running the race too. This is so cool! Wow, 3 generations running the same race, that... Read more
Free entry for a run? YES PLEASE!
Thursday, February 18, 2016      12 comments

This morning I was so excited, I got email confirmation that I'll be volunteering at a race and my thank you is free entry into the next race. That is so cool! Both my husband and I are volunteering so that saves us $140 in entry fees. Woot! ... Read more
Well that's inconvenient

I see, it's going to be one of THOSE weeks. You know, life. On Monday I got a call from the credit card company questions odd transactions, none of them mine. I love that they catch these so quickly but that did mean that my credit card... Read more
Small changes, they make a difference

When I look back at my last week of eating I noticed that I've been hanging out at the top end of my range. That's not a bad thing, it's there for a reason but a week of that means that I"ll maintain weight, not lose. I wasn't eating terrible... Read more
First trail run (lots of pictures, lots and lots of pictures)
Saturday, February 13, 2016      12 comments

This morning I slid out of my nice warm bed, looked at the dull grey clouds and said screw it, I'm running. I drove 20 mins up the road, away from the rain and headed towards the falls. The trail was incredible steep! Go figure, water f... Read more
Clouds are parting and making my daughter cry
Friday, February 12, 2016      13 comments

YAY! Clouds are parting, rain has stopped. REALLY want to go hiking today. Where I want to go has a lot of stairs so going in the rain would be pretty dumb so I've been whining at the clouds all morning and showing the weather report that it'... Read more
Giving up rock climbing for now
Tuesday, February 09, 2016      15 comments

Ugh, this doesn't make me happy but due to my shoulder getting hurt (I'd rant about my husband not putting things away properly but would it help?) I have to step back from rock climbing for now. On the weekend my shoulder took a really hard ... Read more
Great day for a hike
Monday, February 08, 2016      16 comments

What a beautiful day for a hike! We headed out right after work so we could use as much of the daylight as we could and get at least 90 mins in. We made our goal, but really cut it close. Starting out at the river it was a beautiful aftern... Read more
Why did I start my day with ice cream?!
Sunday, February 07, 2016      15 comments

I would love to say I had a stressful night and tiredness took over. I've love to say I was strapped to a chair and force fed ice cream in order to save the planet. I'd like to come up with any excuse that would erase the mistake but reality is ... Read more
You can do anything, you just have to believe

I'm super excited about my goal to run the marathon on the Great Wall of China in 2018 and decided it was time to share the goal with all of my friends and family, figure the more running buddies the better. Most of the feedback I got was ver... Read more
I didn't give things up, I just traded them
Monday, February 01, 2016      16 comments

Someone asked me if I missed my old life a few days ago and that really got me thinking. This morning as I looked out at the amazing view from my home office it really put things in perspective. No, I don't miss it. Right before comm... Read more
A feel good kinda day
Saturday, January 30, 2016      11 comments

Today was just one of those feel good kinda days. Lots of running around, family time, a run in the cold rain and made time to bake bread and home made broccoli/mushroom soup. The day started out at my oldest daughters, just for a visit. I ... Read more
