Happy riders after 22 miles June 7, 2015
is introducing felines to one another...
is back from a morning bike ride with my running buddy.
notes that Rubia is more like a teacup full of purr.
is amused by Rubia's attempts to climb the drawer handles.
slept in til AFTER 6, and has the red, white and blue base ready for the simmering oats to be added.
is repeating yesterday's breakfast - as assembled and festive.
is adjusting to being a two-cat household. So are they.
experienced a maintenace victory... have old worn jeans (that still fit!), will make jean-shorts!
jumped in the lake. It was COLD. What do you mean I have to do it again tomorrow?
feel as though her motivational Spark has returned: because having jumped in the water at that Tri last weekend, there's only one direction TO go - toward the finish line!
finds the not quite lapful is filling more lap with her purr. And getting in more trouble, of course, as she grows.
is getting ready to go run, it's the training kick off for the Good Life Halfsy in November. It takes time to train for a Half Marathon.
They are gone now, but for the USAT Age group nationals, I was marked!
And the finisher's medal from the USA Triathlon Age Group National Championships, 2015.
How to improve transition time... how about ditch the watch?
Best spectator seat in the house... did you see Team USA fly by? I did!
Last leg... time to run 'em down!

continues day 2 of Thanksgiving flavors with a single serving casserole of Ezekiel bread dressing topped with not quite 3 ounces of turkey breast. Really loving having my feast spread over time.
discovered Rubia discovering the tree this morning... what took her so long?
had a very peopled yet joyous day yesterday... between lunch with friend and evening elementary school concert. Memories!
is amusing herself with the cats.
au contraire... more runners show up for "First Run" than did for "Last Run"... it was a great morning for a run!
Because Marsha (SLENDERELLA61) said it would make a good profile pic. For Spark, maybe, not for FB!
has two cats in the doghouse. Grrr!
glue Frosty's tray back together and took down the tree Sunday.
One of my favorites - I miss the Spark page a day calendars!
is sitting out the storm at home. Pretty. Until the power flicked off at 6:30 a.m. It came back right away, but made me go hunt down the flashlight.
is taking on the wet heavy snow 20 minutes at a time. Split pea soup perfect nourishment on a day like this.
had a fine time and discovered a new running buddy at the Red Dress Dash... we ran it forwards, then backwards, just because we needed more miles to train.

Bundled for a Cold ten miles, March 19, 2016

is where the action is going to be... come Monday.

is grateful for the chance to have met some amazing Sparkly people in person!
is wishing MOBYCARP and all the runners in Boston today the run of their lives... may they savor the uniqueness of the Boston Marathon!
had a great time watching the finishers at Boston, live on Boylston street with STRONGDAWG.
celebrating the last Spring elementary concert at one of my music teacher sister's favorite schools.

The full finish line shot 2016
came home on the bus and brought Brenda on the bike rack... you can see her handlebars through the bus window.
loves surprises brought to her by nature. Taken in my front yard.

Proof of finish - 20 miles done after 1500 meter swim - Kristi and Barb July 9, 2016
got different colors in her hair today... but these washed out in one shower (I think...)
presents the side-by-side bling... a 5K doesn't often give a participation medal, but the Color Run does. And it's bigger than the Cornhusker State Games one for the non-competitive cycle tour.
was wrong... there WAS a photo, captured by a pro, on Sunday.
bought the download to the Color Run posed jump with the niece.
presents another one from last Saturday... the blue zone... color running at its messy best!

Sipping from one of my favorite elegant cups.
does have cupboard full of mugs... note the "s"... picked one from this cupboard for today.
Happy Valentine's Day.
is down to the last rose... they lasted a week, and that is enough.
Figured I'd share Spark coach's woo-hoo because it fit with this week's personal focus on good sleep!
Chilling with furry friend after the morning's run. Canine fix courtesy of my sis!
So I'm maintaining... so what? So... "don't get cocky"... keep working the program... because I want to STAY here!
Every time I pack that bag for the workday is a victory!
Two hours to the start of the 10 miler. The pile of preparation builds.
Sharing the visual of pounds lost... granted this was seven years ago, but sometimes a visual helps remind one of what one USED to carry around every single day!
has seen MOBYCARP safely to the bus boarding line for Hopkinton. Good luck to all Boston Marathon Runners!
Rooting on one of my favorite Spark people, my brother MOBYCARP, running the Boston Marathon today, for the second year in a row.

Back in the pool first time since last November's concussion.
can't help but be amused by Rubia's choices.
presenting my favorite finish line photo from the 2017 running of the Lincoln Half Marathon: looking at the watch, "did I beat the time?" Constance the competitor lives.
Updated Medal Rack, with the six Lincoln Half Marathon ones shifted to the front. Seven years of running... the other events are on the Tri rack.
Ran with my Galloway coach yesterday, 6.05 miles, and we stopped to take a selfie at Galloway Ave. Hee.
Ran as a bandit the last mile or so with the final entrant at the Memorial Lincoln Duathlon on Sunday.
day 1400 of my streak for "Log in and spin the SparkPoints wheel" earned 6/11/2017
participated in the community art project this morning.
This artist invited the public to color her heart!
Is continuing to find the Heart sculptures. This one is called "Moonlight and Romeo" (if you get close enough to read the pages that make up that cascade, Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet is printed on them.
Fall Half Marathon training group runs have begun. 93*F when we started. A "take it easy" 4 miles.
packed a BUCKET for her tri - the crazy cat lady edition.
A 60 year old joined the age group in 2017 and she was FAST. 20 minutes faster than I was!
Sister accountability. Had we not promised each other this tandem workout (she ran-walked, I biked) we might both have wimped out in the mist! As is, here we are smiling, almost giggling after the fact (because we look like Mom)!
Yes, those are my legs, being pampered for 20 minutes in those fancy, expensive recovery boots. At packet pickup for USA Triathlon's Age Group National championship, they had a booth where you could try them out.
Oh, yes, I did! Age Group Nationals. Slower than last year, to be expected. But not THAT much slower! And I FINISHED!
Swam in a "swim skin" for the non-wetsuit legal race. August 12, 2017.
is ready to execute "Plan C" for Path of Totality Solar Eclipse Day.
Lifted from KALIGIRL's FB post, the closest snapshot to what I saw on Monday of any I've seen.
is sharing someone else's FB photo, because it is so cool. Taken across town from me, it's the closest I've seen of the photos to my actual view of the event! Credit KALIGIRL for the picture.
Make sure you attach THIS bib right side up.
is getting ready for the Buffalo run... thank goodness for electronic bib tags... this one could be trouble if you don't put in on rightside up!
Buffalo (run) gals got rained on but ran... ALICIA363 and me, post 5 miler! See those smiles? That says these sisters are happy!
made a fresh Advantages Response Card and changed its title, too.
My favorite Veteran... not that he didn't have competition among friends and family, including his father... but every mom knows... the child in uniform trumps them all. Happy Veteran's Day... remember what they signed up for and honor them all today!
is thinking about obstacles and warning signs.

finds that it is beginning to look like December... and a little bit of Christmas.
Now I have to put up a tree! 2017
I now outrank Sgt. Son (2017) - although in a mythical organization!
Even the pebble a day jar is dressed up. It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas!
The retirement photo - I'm on the right, sis on the left, in case anybody doesn't know.
The Prisoner knows how to use a Christmas tree... make himself the present!
's little tree, like Charlie Brown's, just needed love to become magical.
Today's cross-training workout brought to you courtesy of Mother Nature... Merry Christmas to all!
is wishing everyone a Merry Christmas and the blessings of peace on earth, goodwill to all.
is featuring the Spark Coach challenge. Two bags of water softener salt I no longer carry on my body!
Part of "letting go with love" a photo of my "inches lost" tapes from 2009 - 2010... take a photo, then discard to declutter. The beauty? Also motivation to KEEP those inches off!
Winter runner just back from a run 2018
is making the transition from packing a bag to having available healthy options "up front" in the fridge.
Very happy with my local bike shop! Today I decided to put the clip pedals back on my bike so I can have effective trainer workouts over the winter. I discovered I did not have the right sized wrenches! Those nice young men (yes, more really nice younger people) changed them for me and didn't charge me!
The triathlon club calls their "trainer" room the pain cave. This is the mini version, in my house.
I won't be running the marathon in Boston, but I will be doing the 5K two days before it.
got up in time to see the super blue moon starting to be eclipsed, but the cloud cover moved in and did not get to see the totality! Oh, well.
Finally replaced the gym bag that was torn up (the old one was a freebie from maybe five years ago, and its zipper and strap connections totally wore out). I like rewarding commitment with equipment that supports it.
ran with her fellow Triathlon team members this morning.
Sophia and me, January 2018, spinning in a garage.
declares victory. Went and spent an hour and a half with Chloe, the indoor pool. Ahhhh!
Tried a new snack: non-fat Icelandic style yogurt with banana slices spread with almond butter: Oooh... like a banana split!
ran with her fellow Triathlon team members this morning.
Warm fuzzy Hoodie... March 2018

Happy April Fool's Day Easter...
day 1700 of my streak for "Log in and spin the SparkPoints wheel" earned 4/7/2018
is cringing at the forecast for tomorrow and Monday in Boston area.
Found today's weather not as bad as advertised... At least until I tucked inside at about 2:30 p.m. Onward to Marathon Monday.
The new wardrobe and medal to keep me motivated.
is sipping from her Spark mug, the last one of the old style that hasn't been shattered by mishap.
