More Helpful Attitude Thanks to SparkFriends
After I read your comments on my blog yesterday, I decided that it is okay if I get nervous before time trials and races. The problem I suspect is that I have thought getting nervous was not okay, was really silly.

The 2 days I did not pre-plan my food were my worst days. I commit to pre-planning this week.
I did not do any sneak eating, so g... Read more
Good Time to Run!!
Tried not to stress at all, but somehow when I know I'm going to be timed, I find relaxing to be a challenge. And several of my runner friends, including my 80 year old friend who was trying to break 13 minutes (and did) and my 72 year old frien... Read more
Refuse to Stress Over Running
Tomorrow our Galloway group meets at 5:50am for a 6am run. We'll warm up running to the track and then do a "Magic Mile", a one mile time test that the program director uses to form the pace groups. I'm trying not to stress about it.

Nothing profound to say today. I actually did not step on the scale this morning because I just felt bloated.I'm sure I'm up a little. Didn't eat perfect yesterday, but not bad. I'm certainly not going to feel bad about it. Overall, I'm doing gr... Read more
Memorial to the Capris
Not that I haven't been wearing some tank tops and shorts these last few weeks, but now it is time to settle into my May-November clothes. So I reorganized my closet yesterday, putting all the long sleeves in the back and most of my long pants. ... Read more
Worth It at Typhoon Lagoon
Typhoon Lagoon is a great water park at Disney World. We were there 4 hours which was just perfect. No one got sun burnt and I'm betting all 6 of us who went slept well last night. It did wear us out!
First my daughter gave me a Tennessee ... Read more

Safe Walk and Run
Thanks, everyone, for the comments on my blog. Jeanknee is correct. The bird we saw yesterday was an osprey. In my running group this morning was a person who had served as a guide at the Circle Bar B Reserve, knew his stuff, and confirmed from ... Read more
Happy Trails to You!
Thoroughly enjoyed a slow and thoughtful 90 minute walk with my friend this morning at Circle Bar B nature Reserve. We saw dozens of gators, so many birds: limpkin, egrets (several types), herons (blue/white/great/not so great), falcon (we think... Read more
Senior Prom Account
The Senior Prom was great! This picture, not so much, but at least you can see we went. We may get a better picture later; this was one a friend took, not the official one. The theme was "Under the Stars" despite the fact that it was held my fav... Read more
Fun To Try
Tomorrow is Senior Prom at Senior Dance. I just can't help but smile! Some of you may know that not having a prom date when I was in high school was one of the really hurtful parts of being an overweight teen. Yes, I've met people here on SP who... Read more
