I took today off to get things done around the house. Plus, i was losing vacation time and since I get all over the staff's business when I learn they are losing vacation time, I figured I should take a dose of my own medicine. As far as medicin... Read more

Continuing on my journey to outdoor running in the winter... Has anyone used ice cleats or other traction devices on their running shoes? What did you use? Did you think they performed well? If you don't use ice cleats, how do you mana... Read more

It's been a long day, but I miss you guys and wanted to check in. Here are the highlights. The only thing sadder than Scary Yoga being cancelled on Tuesday is finding out that Scary Yoga really WASN'T cancelled, but rather it was dropped fr... Read more
Clean House or Work Out?
Sunday, November 09, 2014      8 comments

I'm tired, Sparkers. Bone tired. It's not the exercise. It's the stress from work. It's feeling like I'm the only one who picks up around the house. It's the endless to-do list. When I'm on my game, I put in 9 1/2 to 10 hours exercising. I ... Read more

Today's blog quote is from Jack LaLanne: Do you know how many calories are in butter and cheese and ice cream? Would you get your dog up in the morning for a cup of coffee and a donut? This week was a week of Mondays, Sparkers. I managed t... Read more
Back in the Game
Wednesday, November 05, 2014      11 comments

Today I really got my head back in the game. I've been playing with the idea about doing the Will Run for Beer series but had not made a commitment. I've been going to Scary Yoga whenever I am home on Tue and Thu nights, but I'm still inti... Read more
Getting Stronger
Tuesday, November 04, 2014      8 comments

Maybe the Scary Yoga instructor had mercy this week. Or maybe it was because Lenny was distracted yesterday and I wasn't as sore as last week. Whatever it was, I didn't feel quite as pushed to the edge as I was last week in scary yoga class. My ... Read more

Lenny put me through my paces in tonight's 50 Shades of Sore. He was distracted by the newer participants, so he paired me up with Earl who is about my age and is a regular at the Y, too. Earl and I went through the work out together. He's stron... Read more

Quick blog for today. I've got some issues in real life to manage and it is stressful. In the long term, it is a blip on the radar, but in this moment, it is intense. The privacy changes are necessary because there is a work component to this an... Read more

Dear Sparkers... I had to change the settings on my page so that only spark friends can see it. There is a person on spark that I do not want to have any contact or information about me. The only way to limit that is to remove that person a... Read more
Will I Run for Beer again?
Saturday, November 01, 2014      13 comments

I am pondering the Will Run for Beek 5K series. I did this in 2012 when I started running. It motivated me to keep running. It was a fun race and I really wanted the jacket at the end. www.willrunforbeer.com/ Basically, ... Read more

With all the talk about Beck and Refuse to Regain, I've been more aware of how/why/when I eat. Lunch time today was dramatic. I had a meeting at 11:15. It was supposed to end with lunch, but the lunch part fell apart. Before I left for the ... Read more
Listening to Freddie Nietzsche Again
Thursday, October 30, 2014      11 comments

Woke up stiff and sore from last night's beating at the Y. In a good way. Legs were tired and I wasn't wild about going up the stairs at work. Nothing terminal. I made it home in time today for another round of scary yoga. I wanted to go be... Read more
