Shameless selfie after a run, before trying on shorts. I needed a boost! LOL!





Someday I will look like this and my dog will learn how to walk/run on a leash!!

Hello, world!

I am a busy doctoral student, full time adminstrator at a college, and artist. I have discovered that as I devote more time to my studies and career, the more sedentary I have become. I do not want to sacrifice one for the other and I am ready to find balance in my life.

Thanks for the blog comment. And ... the swim is my weak spot too. But also, running is my weak spot. And transitions. And staying hydrated. And ... arggh. I think it best to just say that the biking part is good!

By the way, I think the new shoes DEFINATELY contributed to a more comfortable run when I did my 5+ miles!

Hi Amy! I'm Anna from the Grey Wolves team! I just dropped in to introduce myself and cheer you on for the Fall Frenzy Challenge! Like you I am looking for a balance in my life and want my health and fitness to be a priority! Unlike you I am in my mid 50's and do not have an extremely hectic life with school, work and so on. HOWEVER I can identify with Sedentary......have basically become a couch potato....but NO MORE! We GOT THIS! Enjoy!

Stopping by to give you a Grey Wolf "howl"...

Hope that you are having a successful challenge... remember, success consists of getting up just one more time than you’ve fallen down!
