Today was one of my least favorite kind of days...so I've decided. In preparing to run the half marathon in June, today was my training day for kicking my speed up a bit. I hated every minute of it...but I did it anyway. I kicked and screamed... Read more
My Rose-Colored Glasses....
Wednesday, January 30, 2013      3 comments

I've been told in the past that I see life through rose-colored glasses. I was extremely offended when this was said to me in a mocking way by an acquaintance one day a while back. So much so that I couldn't not sit down and ponder over why it... Read more

Good God am I sore. Not only have I not been running routinely in the past month, but I also have new running shoes to break in and I scheduled back to back 4 milers. Combine those three and I am now smiling bigtime that my runs are done for a... Read more

When I think of my goals in life, it becomes almost intoxicating to me. I love to dream. I love to create the vision of my dreams and picture myself at the desired end result. It's something I've done since I was a little girl. I would spend... Read more

I've written before about change. The physical discomfort of it, the emotional discomfort of it, the desirability of it. Change, of course, starts with desire and that desire then leads to the actual changes as long as you go after what you ar... Read more
The Long Run...

I have a new love in my life. It's called the long run that I run on Sundays. Never has running helped me feel so satisfied than running these. What I find so funny about it is the long runs are ran the exact opposite of what I have worked on... Read more

It's just about Monday again, new week means new attitude. It also means it's time for another running goal for me. I've picked my next 5k to run on December 9th. Now that my calf is healed (cross fingers it stays that way) I will be able to ... Read more

When I sit back and think about my goals and the goals I've already accomplished, one thing rings clear for me that I never thought about before this journey of mine came along. The goals I have for myself will never be reached without the help... Read more

So a few weeks back I allowed myself to believe that I would not be able to run the 5k I have planned for next Sunday. I'm so happy to say that the injury that happened has healed and running again is on the books for me. The past couple of da... Read more

So yesterday was my first cardio session since my calf injury. I walked 3.1 miles in 45 minutes. Anyone who reads my blogs will know that in the past I've been all about my times, so a time like this would have normally made me a bit sad. Not... Read more

If I had a quarter for every time I said, or heard someone else say, "I'm going to get into shape" I'd have quite a few quarters ;) I believe it is one of the best goals you can make for yourself. Why do I think that? Because to accomplish tha... Read more
My 5k training thoughts....so far
Sunday, September 16, 2012      1 comments

I'm in the middle of a 5k training program. I've never done a program like this before and I'm finding it frustrating, yet very, very helpful. Frustrating because I want to run like I've always ran, not the way it's telling me to. Right now I... Read more

I'm a big quote person. I just love them. I once read the quote "A miracle is a change in perception" and knew what it was implying, but didn't have any experience with it to fully understand its meaning. As an adult I have always done things... Read more
