I went to the Y this morning to meet with my trainer this morning. It's the first time we have gotten together in 10 days but I have been doing my exercises regularly. When Dave and I first started, I could not raise my left arm out to my ... Read more
This and that
Tuesday, March 27, 2012     

Yesterday afternoon, I was enjoying a yummy bag of popcorn. One of those little 100 calorie bags with a little of my own spice concoction sprinkled on. Delish. Then, CRUNCH! I bit down on an unpopped kernel. When I spit it out, along came a piec... Read more
A Gatorade bath for me
Monday, March 26, 2012     

(Leftover from Saturday's race) Not a big fan of Gatorade, here. I was on the Half Marathon at MCAS Cherry Point Saturday morning when I made the turn into the last mile. There was a water station ... so late? Well, I never turn down w... Read more
PhotoPost 3/25/12: Treasure hidden in the wreckage
Sunday, March 25, 2012     

I missed last night's PhotoPost because I was using one of those personal WiFi devices. They link up to a wireless signal and convert it to a WiFi. If it links to 4G LTE it's nearly as fast as your regular WiFI. If you get a 3G, wow is it slow .... Read more

This picture is a little out of focus because I took it on the run. But it was a sign spotted in one of my recent races. Hmmm. Was this course well checked out before... Read more
She(WMBO) has made me proud
Friday, March 23, 2012     

After I got injured and I just got so tired of not maintaining my training, I asked She(WMBO) if I could engage a trainer to help me get back on track. Specifically, her brother-in-law who is a professional trainer. He is our age so he understan... Read more
PhotoPost 3/22/12: Dinner in Atlantic Beach, NC
Thursday, March 22, 2012     

When we come to visit Newport, NC, we like to go to Atlantic Beach about 20 minutes away. It is still a nice beach, not at all Myrtle Beach, Atlantic City or Ocean City. I hope it stays that nice. We have a favorite restaurant. The Crab Shack do... Read more
A most pleasing run today
Thursday, March 22, 2012     

The rate at which my mini WIFI is uploading, there may be no PhotoPost tonight. It's a shame too because I have some good pictures from Atlantic Beach. In spite of a poor sleep, I got out the door this morning for a run. I mapped a run in a... Read more

Wednesday, March 21, 2012     

The kids were going through some old photo, about 10 years old. They came across this bit of silliness from a trip to one of the amusement parks. I am such a cheap so and so, I am not sure how they convinced me to spend money on this. I forgot a... Read more

Wednesday, March 21, 2012     

... sure'n you know, it is. Although it's nor as if we have had such a bad time of it this winter. I do not remember a more consistently mild winter, ever. My heavy coats are still fresh from the dry cleaner. I never took then out of the pl... Read more

Monday, March 19, 2012     

... another Half this Saturday. What's the big deal? I run a long run of 14 miles every week anyway. So there will be no resting on my laurels. Yes, that's what we call our butts around here. I will be running a half marathon with a bu... Read more
Kids say the darnedest things ...
Sunday, March 18, 2012     

Mike is home. He wasn't doing well in college and wisely decided that no is not his time. Smart guy. But once he got home I have been trying to convince him that we are not a bottomless ATM and he should eat at home. Like that'll work. He c... Read more
