...Because when I stepped out the door to fulfill the promise I made to myself in yesterday's entry, it was just starting to snow. If I hadn't made a public commitment to see if I could run 10K without stopping, the snow would have stopped me th... Read more

This entry is to motivate me. If it motivates you, that's icing on the cake. Back in August I joined the 5K Your Way Spark Team to get myself from not running at all for thirty years to at least a non-stop 5K jog. It worked for me and now I... Read more

Over at my other favorite online forum (the one who's t-shirt I'm wearing), the principals and many of the members are fans of quinoa, a pseudo-grain that is native to South America. I read and heard enough about its nutritional value on the sit... Read more
