I trained hard for my race on Saturday, but when the weather became hot and humid, I wasn't sure how it would turn out. I love this race because you are required to bring a bag of food for the "Meals on Wheels" program that feeds a lot of peopl... Read more

I Know A Treadmill Isn't The Same As Outside But A 29:10 5K Has me Stoked!!!
Wednesday, June 08, 2011      15 comments

OK, Ok, I know it isn't as difficult as running outside in the elements, pulling your own weight and dealing with road surfaces, but I have NEVER done a 5K anywhere in less than 35 minutes. I have been striving for a sub-thirty 5K for more than... Read more

Today My Heart Is Breaking!
Sunday, May 01, 2011      34 comments

I live in a retirement community, so it is not unusual to see the ambulance screaming by quite frequently. The only difference is that I don't know any of those people and eventually, you get used to hearing the sirens. It is extremely differe... Read more

Sunday, April 17, 2011      21 comments

I sent a mail message to a good friend and, after reading it, I GOT THE MESSAGE! Isn't that funny? It is easy to tell someone else what to do without actually doing it yourself. When I was working in sales, we used to say (when talking about o... Read more
