My finish line picture from Sunday's race. I'm glad I remembered someone was taking a picture and I don't look like I'm in severe pain. The T-shirt is my second favorite T-shirt. It used to be my first favorite, but now I have the Rutgers T-shir... Read more

I. Am. Wiped. Out. Quick update. I can barely keep my eyes open and it's only 7:20. Ran my 4th Will Run for Beer 5K. Lesson learned: don't go out with friends the night before a race, eat pork tacos, drink red wine, go to bed at 11:30 ... Read more

Wednesday, May 09, 2012      6 comments

So far this week is better than last. Not because work isn't tough and the stress is getting to me. But I'm making better choices. I saw my therapist yesterday. She pointed out to me that last week I did very little in terms of "self-care".... Read more

Oy. My legs are screaming. The Hubster went out on the traditional Sunday bike ride without me. My plan was to cook, clean and lounge. Then I watched that video of the disabled veteran who Decided He Could. Then I looked out my window and s... Read more

Seems like I wasn't alone this week in the battle against emotional eating. One day this week, I was a comedy skit for my colleagues. I kid you not. I think it was Tuesday, I was eating potato chips at 8:30 in the morning. I was staring at... Read more

I rarely remember lines from books or movies. For some reason, the last sentence of Candide has remained with me since my since high school French class from 1983. For those of you who don't read French and/or who didn't read Candide, "Il faut c... Read more

Two important points to explain the significance of today's work out. 1. Work sucked today. Really. I bet you could hear the sucking sound coming from the northeast corner of Massachusetts. 2. I've been trying to convince OPTIMIST1948 tha... Read more

I ran another race today. Today was the Beyond the Rainbow 5K. The Great Bay Half Marathon was also happening. What a tough race. It felt like it was all uphill. Of course, it wasn't, but I really can't think of any part of the 5K that wasn't cl... Read more
