Milestone Coming Up

Sunday, January 02, 2011      5 comments

I'm about to hit 10,000 points on Spark People. I'd like to say that in the past year or so that I've been on the Web site, I've lost lots of weight, but it's not so. I lost some, gained it back. But I've been soaking up the message and the atti... Read more

No Resolution, Just Ongoing Goals

Saturday, January 01, 2011      1 comments

This year, I've already started the changes I want to make, so no new resolutions for the new year. Goal 1: Run a mile a day, three days/week. I can already run the mile, but sticking to it for three days a week has been challenging with weat... Read more

Friday, November 26, 2010      3 comments

Today I ran a mile for the second day in a row, which I haven't done before. I'm taking tomorrow off and trying for two miles on Sunday. Everything feels pretty good....... Read more

Long run day

Sunday, November 14, 2010      2 comments

Going out soon to run my "long" run - 1.6 miles, with several big hills. It's a cold, clear day. The frost is off the fields now. Good running weather. Portia will come along.... Read more

Do you look at your feet when you run?

Tuesday, July 27, 2010      5 comments

Tonight after i got back from picking up my husband at work, I still felt energetic, so I took Electra, my border collie, for a C25K walk/run. I'm working on week 3 - for as long as it takes - and I still haven't been able to run the whole parts... Read more

Hurray, the rain quit!

Thursday, July 08, 2010      5 comments

Yesterday it just poured here, hard. The street beside our administration building became a river, while the water surged and bubbled out of the manhole. The fire hydrant up the street was half under water. We're not near a creek or river; the r... Read more

Vacations are excellent!

Wednesday, July 07, 2010      4 comments

So last week I camped among lions on a mountain in Arkansas. Seven of them roared through the night, their humphs and grunts echoing off the surrounding mountaintops. If you ever get a chance to go to Turpentine Creek Wildlife Refuge, GO!... Read more

Feral cat update

Tuesday, June 01, 2010      2 comments

Also, Bertie, the orange and white feral cat, has become my bestest friend. I can't walk in the bedroom without him weaving between my feet. Putting on pants has become a delicate dance so I don't step on him. And he runs in every morning as soo... Read more

Tuesday, June 01, 2010      2 comments

Computer is still out sick. Hacker friend has not produced. I'm snatching a few minutes at work to check in. I've been stress-eating a lot since the computer went down - no support! But I'm eating well today and I've been working hard on the gar... Read more

Feral Cat Breakthrough!

Saturday, May 01, 2010      1 comments

Must add another blog today. One of my feral cats, Bertie, the orange and white one, has begun to let me pet him. Last night he let me rub behind his ears and today, he actually let me run my hand down his back a few times. He looked panicked an... Read more

C25K week 2

Saturday, May 01, 2010      2 comments

What I learned this week: My legs hurt when I start out, but relax after about the first 10 minutes. I gasp for breath for the first half of the run, but then recover faster in the second half. It gets easier. This all seems very count... Read more

C25K Week 1 DONE!

Sunday, April 25, 2010      1 comments

Hooray! It really did seem a little easier today. I hope the third day of each week is like that. It's a big deal for me to make it through the week. I tend to not follow through on things and it's really important to me to finish this - n... Read more
