I had my last long run this past weekend. I have 7 miles to do this coming Saturday, but honestly, that's no longer a "long" run. Don't get me wrong... it IS a long run, but it doesn't FEEL long to me anymore. Once I back off the mileage, it ... Read more

I tell ya what.. 12 miles puts the hurt on people. oof! I think 10 miles is my limit for a "feel good" run. I've been having some hip pain, nothing serious, but just a dull pain. So I decided to give that fancy "KT" tape a try. Slappe... Read more

Half way thru the challange! It's been a bit of a struggle so far... weight up and down. I had a small gain this week, but I'm confident that it will be down next week. It's been a frustrating week. We've had to do some unexpected home... Read more
