Well I guess I'm rubbing off on others. You all know I'm starting to learn to run using the Galloway method using intervals. My DH had asked to join me. All good. I have a beautiful step-daughter. She found out a few years ago she is ... Read more

Well I did decide to go figuring worse case is I walked more than I ran. Temp was 76 degrees with 88% humidity. ACK! However, it was cloudy with the chance of rain. YES!! So I went, a small venue indeed, maybe 100. A fundraiser for ... Read more

A suggestion was made that I try to do the intervals with the run/walk as I might find I may actually get a better time so I had to go out tonight. Not my favorite weather wise for this as it the sun was shining brightly and it was about 70 but... Read more

Well it is to rain today so DH and I got out early. I wanted to do 3 miles run/walk. So got the Garmin set up and thanks to all that offered advice, I decided to change up the range and see how it went. So I found 137 to be a good low end and... Read more

Good Morning Ladies! Well, the DH got some photos around for me to share from our outing on Mother's Day in the windy city. It was actually a beautiful day there. A bit cool but tolerable and the wind not so bad. These photos are m... Read more

Got this from a friend and just felt the urge to share. One day I hopped in a taxi and we took off for the airport. We were driving in the right lane when suddenly a black car jumped out of a parking space right in front of us. My tax... Read more

Yep, according to the training schedule, today was 15 minutes. I was gonna try and mix it up up and change it but decided to take it easy on the DH. I truly think he's serious as he dropped some $$ today after work for GOOD running shoes and G... Read more
