About 15 years ago a group of us decided to get our adrenaline rush and jump out of an airplane. It was a static line jump. It sounded like no big deal. It sounded pretty fool proof. Step out of the plane, the chute opens, you land on the gr... Read more

Saturday I finished the GR20 trail in Corsica on my virtual walk. It was quite the hike. Funny, I got sucked in by the quaint old church they showed in one of the photos and thought it'd be this hike through the old European countryside. Ha! ... Read more

Well I finished my virtual walk of the Florida Keys trail while I was off on vacation in Minnesota. I was pleased that I managed to hit all my step goals even with some long drive days. I was grateful that the person with me also has a step go... Read more

I am beaming brightly and smiling from ear to ear. Today's going to be a good day! Ok, so I will start with the not so good. I did not finish the PCT virtual hike yesterday. I had planned on coming home from my board meeting and hopping ... Read more

No, I haven't been on spring break to some warm and sunny beach. I was home completely jealous of those who were! Here in Michigan, Old Man Winter refuses to loosen his grip and we were having temps in the 20-30's, snow, sleet, rain, and lovel... Read more

Well, the shoes the running store ordered for me came in. I finally made my way there to try them on. I was apprehensive after my last experience. I had spent over an hour trying on shoes and went home with none. I slid my feet into thes... Read more

Singing the Rolling Stones here. So I had a busy weekend. I got my steps in on both Friday and Saturday. Sunday was a bit of a challenge AND I went out to dinner. I had a small sirloin steak with a baked potato dry - no butter, no sour cream,... Read more

I have been on this site for a while now. At first I joined, jumped in with a strict diet and exercise plan, dropped about 30 pounds and then quit. A year or so later, with my tail between my legs, I quietly rejoined SP. I decided no more dra... Read more

Do you ever do something that you really didn't plan on doing, didn't really want to do, but did it anyhow and afterwards found yourself scratching your head and thinking "Why did I....?" They say insanity is doing the same thing over and over,... Read more

How you doing? Here, take just a little more. It's ok, you can handle it. You got this girl. Ever look at your calendar and think you don't have much on it and you are going to have a pretty easy week with some time for yourself, only to... Read more
