Posted Sep 13 2012 in , , , , , , , ,

The best intentions… Last spring I blogged about Ripping Up The Workout Schedule. It was the end of June, I was tired. I’d been following a schedule for so long that nothing was fun anymore. I didn’t want to do any of the workouts I normally enjoyed. I dreaded every trip to the pool. Every […]

Posted Jun 21 2012 in , , , , , , , ,

Exercise and working out have not always come naturally to me, in fact, ten years ago…heck, even six years ago, it was a VERY different story.

To Plan is…to Rock and Roll!

Posted Dec 7 2011 in , , , , ,

Every race needs a plan. Sometimes that plan involves pacing, fueling, walk breaks, start line strategy and even bathroom breaks. And sometimes…it doesn’t. This past Sunday night, I had the opportunity to run the Las Vegas Strip, at night with one of my best friends, Deb and another awesome lady and new friend, Sheena (oh, […]

I Lost My Toe – An Athletic Badge of Honor

Posted Sep 28 2011 in , , , , , , , ,

Okay, I didn’t really lose my toe. It is fortunately, still firmly attached. But, on my left foot, I did lose my second to the biggest (is that the pointer toe?) toe nail. And I’m ecstatic. Sure it looks a bit strange and pedicures, if I ever got them on a regular basis, will be […]
