From There To Here...
Saturday, April 27, 2013      3 comments

Throughout this journey I've taken the time to sit back and look over the many changes I've gone through going from where I was 3 1/2 years ago to now. 3 1/2 years ago I was at what I call my starting over point. I literally did an overhaul of... Read more

Yes, it is all about the journey. I know that. I've preached it. I've lived it. I've loved it...most of the time. Learning to roll with the punches that the journey brings is becoming a specialty of mine. I now have discovered that the hal... Read more

Funny how life works sometimes. I can go, go, go on my journey to accomplishing my goals and then one day I'll notice something different is going on. Something doesn't feel just quite right. I'll take a look around, see maybe some extra "bus... Read more

Happy Easter! Tomorrow is April 1st, beginning of a brand new month. Gotta love beginnings of things, especially new months where the dreams usually begin and the seeds of your journey get planted so you can pursue that goal you have in mind. ... Read more

As I sit here looking through my balcony window, I'm admiring the lovely, purple colored tree that is blooming so beautifully. I'm noticing the quiet surrounding me as I'm gazing off into the distance and watching some birds flying by as well. ... Read more
Building Your Story...

I've been told in the past to be careful of what you wish for, because you may just end up with it. I never gave that much thought, up until the past few years when I found my ability to wish with a passion like I never had previously. I've ha... Read more

Friday night, one of my favorite times of the week as is probably for many others out there. It's the time of the week where I get to reclaim "my time" and do with it as I please. No work, all play...or something along those lines as I like to... Read more
7 Miles...
Monday, March 04, 2013      6 comments

Yesterday was another first for me. I completed my first 7-mile long run. I did pretty darn good up to the 6th mile, then I kind of lost it during that one. That one felt as if I was pulling at something in me that did not want to come out, n... Read more
The Light Of My Flame...
Sunday, February 24, 2013      3 comments

Once in a while I sit back and wonder why I love running so much. What is in it that lights my flame as much as it does? It's an activity that doesn't always pay you back very quickly. It makes you ache. It requires a lot of effort, commitme... Read more

I've been through many phases in this whole "starting life over at 40" process. As I look over them, I can see just how valuable each phase has been for me. Each phase has been a stepping stone of its own magnitude and even though some were so... Read more

The 4-mile push from yesterday was simply amazing. No better word for it. There is truly nothing like the feeling you get when you feel rewarded for the efforts you put into something. For me, I was rewarded with a genuine feeling of accompli... Read more
4 Mile Push...
Saturday, February 09, 2013      2 comments

It's Saturday which means it's my "push" day. Today is a 4-miler to be ran at a speed that I'm pushing myself to achieve, rather than my favorite easy/long runs which still require me to push myself, just not at faster speeds than I'm used to. ... Read more
The New Pancake....
Saturday, February 09, 2013      2 comments

I found a very simple recipe for an alternative to the good-ole pancake which I absolutely love, love, love :) But I know they are not very healthy the way I make them, so I jumped onto Pinterest and found a great recipe. I tried it out this m... Read more

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
