Bonus blog - the trail shoes

Saturday, February 06, 2016      10 comments

Since someone asked: here are the shoes I run in on snow / ice. I also use them when shoveling snow or for off-road running, all seasons. They are trail shoes. Note the soles with rubber spikes on them... kind of like mud/snow tires, only fo... Read more

Seven miles on ice

Saturday, February 06, 2016      21 comments

We are up to seven miles on the so-called "long" runs. With the snow storm that blew through here in the lower 30's temps, there has been melting and re-freezing. The Thursday Red Dress Dash saw a few very ugly blocks where the downtown proper... Read more

Despite how I got there...

I did stop myself from resenting being a part of the Red Dress Dash. I had a good time. Even the boss was a good sport and showed up in his red dress: Read more

Binging while writing blog, trashing the blog

Thursday, February 04, 2016      33 comments

That's exactly the order of events yesterday. I declared it an "extra" snow day, or rather "slick roads" day yesterday. And that's a danger zone for me... especially as the sun came out, the wind wasn't too bad, and my walks were already clear... Read more

Snow Day

Tuesday, February 02, 2016      30 comments

It really is quite pretty. As long as I'm inside, safe and warm. The power flickering wasn't all that fun... but it *did* come right back. This time. It's still coming down. The TV news folks are now saying 5 to 10 inches... but you know ho... Read more

Deep Dark Fears or no, life goes on!

Monday, February 01, 2016      23 comments

"Do it anyway". Short for lack of time: * The bag is packed. Eat what's in it, that's why you packed it. * Remember to go to recess. * Remember to breathe and prioritize. * Be kind to yourself as you would be to your best f... Read more

So what about those deep dark fears?

Sunday, January 31, 2016      31 comments

We lay a lot of story on top of the deep dark fears, but they lurk, and sometimes they blind-side us. Whenever I find myself "back in the food" you can bet it's not JUST because somebody brought donuts to work! The sugar-filled crap or the sal... Read more

How to climb out of the hole

Friday, January 29, 2016      44 comments

Simple, right? One hand-hold at a time! Yesterday I packed the bag. I didn't eat what was in it. I indulged in some off-plan eating. But I did make ONE good decision, part way through my afternoon recess... I didn't buy MORE. I let mys... Read more

Baby steps and CREDIT

Thursday, January 28, 2016      32 comments

Often I find that I use illness as an excuse to "fall off the wagon", i.e. to indulge in some comfort eating. "I feel lousy anyway, I might as well see if this old friend of a food will make me feel a *little* better, even temporarily." An... Read more

Self-pity Sunday

Sunday, January 24, 2016      36 comments

Went through about three boxes of *these* today... ah-choo! Yesterday morning at 7 I ran 6 miles with the group in about 20F with a 10 mph he... Read more

Just for cutes: the cat olympics

Saturday, January 23, 2016      28 comments

In the category "Synchronized Sleeping", we have The Prisoner and Rubia, from the USA: Note the near-identical positioning of paws, tails... my... Read more

Nothing exciting here... but it IS Friday, so you never know...

Friday, January 22, 2016      17 comments

Yesterday over the noon hour they held "The Governor's Walk". This is the 5th year that the state-wide challenge "Live Well Nebraska" has kicked of... Read more

Clarissa explains the need for strength

Thursday, January 21, 2016      23 comments

What, another confession? Yep. Y'all know I changed gyms, and I changed from my old gym's pool that I had dubbed Chloe Jones (we had a thing going on), to my new gym's pool, Clarissa (she has a deep end, and she explains things to me while I z... Read more

OK, so maybe it was not my WHOLE life's purpose...

Wednesday, January 20, 2016      22 comments

but it IS my Spark mission, here. (See yesterday's blog.) Those five questions can drive any kind of mission/purpose statement, at a personal or at a group/organizational level. Reminder of the questions: 1. Who am I? 2. What do... Read more

Your life's purpose

Tuesday, January 19, 2016      31 comments

Admission: I've been discovering more TED talks, and one of them purported to give you your life's purpose in five minutes. Five questions lead to your purpose statement, and forgive me if I warped them in translation. 1. Who are you? (... Read more
