Bonus blog: In The Beginning Blog 2 and What I did
Friday, January 20, 2017      8 comments

I lied. I said blog 2 would start in May of 2009, but I found some early success photos from 1989 - 1992. These begin about 10 months after my earliest "before" picture, and stretch into my first taking up running to "keep it off", the last on... Read more

A blogger in need of a new theme series
Wednesday, January 18, 2017      36 comments

The blank blog entry space! For 26 blogs, I blogged an alphabet of topics, all the way putting them in context of my morning pep talk. But now what? I'm ruling out doing a count-down to the Lincoln Marathon (109 days, for anyone who is in... Read more
A day off is a good thing

I called myself a wimp for deciding to sit today out, but after having been out and spread ice-melt on the walks, I decided the streets didn't look too bad, and went to check on my sister's cats. She's headed home today, but I hadn't poked my n... Read more

For those of you who are "newer" readers, I name all my fitness gear. I have a Spirit treadmill that I purchased back in 2010, when my son was newly back from his first deployment... I remember because he helped me pick it out, and I did a 2-fo... Read more
Same song second verse
Sunday, January 15, 2017      44 comments

A little bit louder, a little bit worse... OK, now I've got that old kids' song rattling around in your head, I'll 'splain. It was NOT louder or worse, but it was embarrassing. Training run, target 8 miles, yesterday morning. Dry t... Read more

My little Webster's tells me that zeal is "intense enthusiasm, as in working for a cause; ardent endeavor or devotion; ardor; fervor". And a couple words later, it defines a zealot: "1 a person who is zealous, esp. to an extreme or exces... Read more

Those of us "of a certain age" remember a certain television commercial that focused on a distorted man in the foreground, moaning, "I can't believe I ate the WHOLE thing!" But that's not the definition I'm most interested in for this "W" today... Read more

Ever wonder the difference between "you" and the people you admire? The ones who have achieved their dreams, done things beyond what you think you ever could do? Well, last night I had the opportunity to sit down with several people in a s... Read more

Ohmigosh! Is she gonna talk about mortician's work? Nope, this is, according to my Webster's: "n. 1 something undertaken; task; charge; enterprise 2 a promise; guarantee" What are YOU undertaking? If you've been following along wit... Read more
Treadmill
Sunday, January 08, 2017      30 comments
