Thursday, October 13, 2011      4 comments

Well, I got my last 5k run in this morning. I enjoyed every minute, even though I was sweating and huffing and puffing! Put a big basket loaded with sweats, my laptop, make-up, hair stuff, and magazines downstairs in our family room so I w... Read more

Glad I talked myself into getting up early and going for a run. Had a long day at work and a dinner meeting. Tomorrow is my last day to run before my foot surgery - trying to get in as many as possible this week! I am really gonna miss it. ... Read more

For weeks I have been thinking about what I am going to eat while I am not on my foot for 6 weeks - especially the first couple weeks. I make all of our meals at home. I am going to be at the mercy of my husband! My husband LOVES to eat out/get... Read more

I am getting a wheel/knee cart this week so I can keep going while not stepping on my foot. I got all my fall/pumpkin decor up inside and out of my house - orange makes it seem so much brighter when the sun is down by 7 pm!! I am going to ... Read more
Main St Mile Run...
Saturday, October 01, 2011      5 comments

I did it! Completed the Main St Mile Run. For the past 3 years I watched from the sidelines as runners completed it; never thought I could! And, I was focused on time too, not just finishing the race! I ran it in 9.13! What a difference on... Read more
Heel Spur Surgery?
Wednesday, September 28, 2011      4 comments

I am getting my bunionectomy Oct 14th. I found out that I also have a heel spur which explains why my heel hurts so bad! I have 3 options: get a shot of cortisone, topaz, or have the spur removed. Having the spur removed will take 3 months!!... Read more

Today we found out that my husband (age 48) is cancer free!! Because he gets a physical and blood work every year - he caught prostate cancer in the earliest stage - and had it removed robotically. It did not spread and the surgeon was able to ... Read more

Working on speed this week, I would like to run the mile in 9 mins or under. This is the first year I am running in it...I always wanted to but didn't think I would make it! My 20 year old son is running it too. When I run with him - well, act... Read more

Tonight, despite suffering from a cold, lack of sleep, and a week of hell -- I completed my goal of running five 5k's this running season. Now that it is over (during the race I didn't feel this way), I can say I am glad that I made myself pre-... Read more
Last night's set back...
Wednesday, September 21, 2011      4 comments

Actually, it was 1:45 this morning. My husband woke me to go to the emergency room, after a set back in his recovery. He didn't tell me he was having a problem until it was bad - very bad. Said he was looking up what to do on the internet as... Read more
Today was better...

My husband is doing a lot better today. I went to work after a 5k run, and he started his "honey do list". He had to call different contractors (we had our house built two years ago) and schedule them to come out and fix things. He is also ge... Read more
Finally got to run!

This morning I noticed my husband was doing more on his own, so after our walk with Roxy -- who is celebrating her fourth birthday today -- I did not feel guilty taking my 40 minute run around the development. I really needed to do it, I had be... Read more
Back home...
Friday, September 16, 2011      2 comments

We got back from the hospital last night. Hard to believe my husband could go home 24 hours after surgery - but he did. The 1 hour drive home from Philly was awful. The doctor said his prostatectomy was "flawless". We should know by tuesday... Read more

I have known all summer that my husband was going to be getting his prostate removed due to cancer this Wednesday...I put it on the back burner in my mind as I am sure he did as much as he could, too. Today I had the "Feel sorry for poor me" mo... Read more
