How can one word be so nasty? How can one word affect me so much in less than 24 hours? Yesterday I found out that the owner of the salon I go to (I live in a fairly small community) and who I consider a friend has breast cancer. In less... Read more

Today started out c-r-a-z-y! A good reminder that the best laid plans don't always go your way. My youngest children had "early out" at 1 this afternoon. This meant that my Kindergartner would go in at 10:30. My hubby had to be at the clinic... Read more

We ended up getting quite a bit of snow in my area. I am not fond of cold weather but there is something so beautiful about fresh snow! Today is my day of rest before my 8 mile run tomorrow - which will be done on the treadmill. ... Read more

Today I had a 3 mile MM run to do for my training. My schedule got interrupted at the last minute last night so I had to get up early in order to squeeze it in. Well, my thinking was - it is ONLY 3 miles so I will get up and jump on the treadm... Read more

Why is it that some days motivation is so hard to find? Today is the perfect example. The kids have a snow day (more like ice day). So we are all a little slower to get moving. I had a 30 minute training run to do and ab work. Nothing major... Read more

How is it that today when I ran out of my driveway every direction I turned was uphill and the wind was blowing in my face? I had planned on doing my 30 minute training run in the warmth of my basement when my hubby (who just came back fr... Read more

You are becoming a runner when you start saying things like "I 'only' have to run 30 minutes today" or when you drive the course you just ran to see how far you went. You'll know your body is adapting when the runs seem easier or when you run a... Read more

It wasn't long ago that I HATED to run. And then I started and it was ok. But, I would see people running in the rain or the cold and think - they are CRAZY! What kind of fool runs for fun in this stuff? I continued to run and added mileage ... Read more
New shoes and possible problem.....
Wednesday, December 08, 2010      6 comments

So today I went in to the running store to get an eval and possibly a new pair of shoes. I have been having some issues with my current shoes (or at least that is what I was attributing the issues - left shin pain, right ankle pain to). After... Read more
