Training

We always hear how the body can achieve whatever the mind can achieve. Man, I’ve heard this a thousand times and STILL don’t always believe it! I was admittedly nervous about running the Turkey Trot 5k and 10k back-to-back. I ran the St. Patty’s Day 5k and 10k back-to-back once before, but that was back […]

Feeling a little like Stella lately. You know her, she’s the one who got her groove back. But I’m only feeling a little like Stella….it’s only been a few weeks and I’m not consistent in all the areas I want to be consistent in, so I guess I’m more like Stella’s cousin, we’ll call her Bella. […]

I made plans last night to meet my running buddy this morning at 8:00. I had a bartend shift last night so I knew I’d be tired, since I wouldn’t be getting home until 1:30 or 2:00 a.m. But I love running with her, the weather was supposed to be nice, and I knew there […]

I woke up Friday morning and was So. Tired. My efforts to get to bed by 9:30 or 10:00 at the latest have been unsuccessful. Thursday night the last time I looked at the clock it was 11:27. Ugh. I went about my normal morning routine, made coffee, let dogs out, packed hubby’s lunch, let […]

Oh. Sweet. Goodness. Today was Day 4 of P90X3 and I was totally intimidated. The workout was The Challenge, and it was 30 minutes of assorted pull-ups, chin-ups, and push-ups. Just seeing the worksheet was scary enough. I am NOT good at any of these exercises, and I would have to do THIRTY MINUTES of […]

Today was Day 1 of P90X3! I did the 21 Day Fix last month, and have been undecided about exactly which program to tackle next. I’ve not been pushing myself like I should, and have been bouncing around between a few different workout programs the last few weeks. My friend, Genevieve, had really great results […]

Since I was locked out of my admin site for a while (thanks, hackers! I changed my password, jerks!) I figured I should catch you up on what’s been happening here. I finished the 21 Day Fix that I did back in March and am happy to report a loss of 10 pounds on the […]

Treadmill calling

This winter has been cold. COLD. C.O.L.D. Probably the coldest for the longest amounts of time that I can remember. I know winters were bad when I was a kid, but we’ve only had a few very minor thaws this winter. Know how I can calculate that? We’ve only had to scoop dog poop a […]

I can’t believe it’s been two weeks since I completed my first marathon – – the 38th annual Marine Corps Marathon. What’s even more crazy, besides how fast time has flown, is that I am just now getting around to the recap and blog post! I’ve only had a few people ask me where the […]

Remembering

I should be packing. We leave this afternoon for Washington, D.C., site of the Marine Corps Marathon this weekend. But I had to take a few minutes this morning and just do this. If you’ve followed my journey, you know all about it. When the race is (Sun. 10/27/13), where it is (Washington, D.C.), all […]
