Fudgcicle 5K
Saturday, January 03, 2015      12 comments

It's been a busy day today. My running buddy cajoled me into running the first of the Fudgcicle 5 races. It's sponsored by the local road runners club. (My husband signed me up as a member last year. Not sure what that means.) So, at a chilly 7:... Read more

Mindfulness. Living in the present moment. Being present. Here and now. When it comes right down to it, if I focus on that, I should meet my goals. Hungry? Hmm... Let me check in with myself before I eat. Guess what, self? You are rea... Read more
1st Run 2015
Thursday, January 01, 2015      12 comments

Ran my first 5K race since April. My favorite race in my fair city. 1st Run. It is cold up my way Sparkers. 25 degrees at race time. Wind off the river made it feel colder. But it was bright, clear, and sunny. The Hubster surprised me... Read more
Figuring out the Balance
Friday, December 12, 2014      10 comments

Sparkers! I'm alive and well. I wish I could tell you that I was off on exciting adventures and conquering tall mountains and vast oceans. Alas, it was much more mundane: long days at work, fitting in a little exercise and trying to get enough s... Read more
Don't Give Up

Hi Sparkers! Not much excitement here. Taking care of the wiggly back. It was tweaky yesterday, so I was careful with yoga. Decided that today's scheduled run would happen inside on the treadmill, which is easier on my back. I plugged away and o... Read more
Morning Bike Ride in the Snow
Saturday, November 29, 2014      13 comments

Today is a modified Warrior Workout day. Teri wanted to do some Christmas shopping before she went to work. Good for me because I really did not want to run. Instead I went for a bike ride. A cold bike ride. Cold. Very cold. It was 20 degre... Read more

I know you want to know about Spontaneous Combustion: Power Vinyasa Flow. (I can't read that without cracking up.) Well, you are going to get the play by play of the morning. I was up at 6 and enjoyed a leisurely morning Sparking and spending my... Read more
Teri's Turkey Trot

You get two blogs today: Teri's Turkey Trot and Spontaneous Combustion yoga. First up, Teri. Thanksgiving was good. Just me and The Hubster at home. We had a tofurkey! (His choice, not mine. I would have gotten a nice piece of fish.) H... Read more

Bless me, Sparkers, for I have sinned... I hid some back pain from you. It started last Saturday during my morning run. My shoe lace came untied and I had trouble bending down to tie it. Of course, my massage therapist is my running buddy... Read more
Morning Run
Monday, November 24, 2014      10 comments

Time to give myself HUGE CREDIT (to borrow from Beck.) I'm following a RunKeeper training plan that only includes 2 days of running. I scheduled the training plan in my calendar so that I don't mess it up. Today was a 2 mile run. I had mas... Read more
Deep Thoughts on The Divine
Sunday, November 23, 2014      9 comments

Feeling reflective today. In my offline life, I have been meditating on the idea of the divine within me and how I share it with others. This has been the theme that has been on my mind and in my heart for a week now. I have had a few very deep ... Read more

I'm noticing changes, Sparkers, and so are other people. On Friday, I had a meeting with someone whom I haven't seen in more than a year. It was at work, so I was nattily attired. In fact, I had my sassy red (garnet colored) tights on with ... Read more

Day 3 of the training program for Jan 1st 5K. Cross train: I put in 20 minutes on the stationary bike this morning and another 25 minutes when I got home. Not inspiring. I did it. My heart was not in it. I was not inspired. I was bored, bored, b... Read more

Oh my goodness, Sparkerini! What a story I have for today. Well, more of a OMG! moment. Today was scary yoga. More on that later. At the end of class, I'm rolling up the mat and I notice something at the end of the mat. I thought it was som... Read more
