Ariel missed me. (Ariel, for those of you who might have missed all the blogs about the naming of things... is my siren-calling treadmill). She told me so as she warmed up last night when I decided I just didn't want to run outdoors in the col... Read more
A week ago I blogged that I was turning my trip and my eating on the trip over to my Higher Power. www.sparkpeople.com/mypa ge_public_journal_individu al.asp?blog_id=5878362
That is exactly what I did... I packed som... Read more
I'm up in the air again. On my way back to the chillier air, my skin a bit pinker, my soul at peace... and hoping that there are no hitches in the connection, since at this point BOTH bags are checked through. I fished my prescription meds out... Read more
After an episode straight out of Seinfeld from the car rental counter... to taking the upgrade and driving a sweet Ford Mustang for more $$$... to finding Marsha's house, to a 6.7 mile walk past orange groves...

So I went out for the grou... Read more
Most of you know I've been taking a half marathon training class. One of the "features" of this class is a private FaceBook page where the trainers post various things, including links to articles. As the weather went from fantastic to questio... Read more
