Halfway through Half-Marathon training
Friday, August 31, 2012      0 comments

Well, almost. Assuming I survive tomorrow's 8 miler, I'll be at halfway through the 12-week training plan that I'm on. My HM is still 2 months away and I'm starting to feel stronger. Last night I ran our monthly Pub Run 3-miler in 27 minute... Read more

I did it. I signed up for a half-marathon so now I have to train and focus on getting myself ready. Since I've never done one before I joined a training group and it does help to have the moral support of the coaches and other runners,and I just... Read more

These are my favorite jeans and I've missed wearing them, even after they shocked me out complacency by refusing to zip (let alone button!). But I've been on the wagon for ab... Read more

focusing on running helps me lose weight. not only because of the calorie burn--although that helps--but because achieving running goals requires focus on maintaining healthy lifestyle habits. 2010 is about climbing back on the maintenance wagon... Read more
Growing the Energy Budget
Sunday, August 16, 2009      1 comments

Although I work hard (desk job), on most days I don't really use up all my physical energy. In contrast, I fill the weekend days with activities that pretty much "empty the tank". I've learned that fitness helps to grow that budget so that day... Read more
It's about self-respect (duh!)
Thursday, February 26, 2009      3 comments

I admit it, I've been slacking into unhealthy habits for the past 2 months. Working too much, sleeping too little, not eating well and NOT ENOUGH RUNNING. This morning I got smart; got up early, chugged some coffee and put on my shoes before I w... Read more
