Today I got to do something I don't get to do anymore. Go for a run in the middle of the day. It was awesome! Hitting the trails before the end of the day, not having to race the clock to get out of the park before closing. I got to take a br... Read more

This past weekend I headed out for what was labeled as a "moderate 7K" hike. Someone has a warped sense of what moderate is and really needs a lesson on distance. It ended up being a 12K intense hike, and of course I loved it. I was filthy, e... Read more

A couple of weeks ago I posted a blog about getting varicose veins and getting them removed. I was very taken back by the negative comments I got on my decision to the point of removing the blog. I then sulked for a couple of days because it ... Read more
