tummy trouble, walk not run today
Don't know what I either got into or ate but I sure had the tummy ache last night. So instead of dinner out with friends and then on to my Bible study, I took a hot bath and chewed on some ginger and went to bed early. Kind of waiting to see wha... Read more

After worship and a bit of lunch, dh and I hit the trail on the bikes circling the Art Museum and flying down the new House Trail. What a beautiful way to enjoy the fall leaves... like riding on gold and rubies.
Will weigh in a bit but I'm ... Read more

and now back on the trail.........
Today I was back on the 3.2 trail for the first time in a couple of weeks. That last half mile was pretty slow. In fact, the whole jog was pretty slow. BUT, it was good to get out, to see my usual peeps and dogs jogging/walking. I love that it i... Read more

on the trail in the fall
mornings on the trail in the fall are such a treat. This morning, besides running through the leaves, I had the joy of seeing a crane fly over. They are one of my favorite birds. DH says that is because they are tall and skinny...ha.

my two personal trainers......woof, woof!
Two days ago I was starting my day a bit slower. When I don't have to go into work I enjoy sitting in the window seat, bird watching, morning prayers and thoughts.
My two personal trainers have different ideas or maybe just one main idea. ... Read more
running and low carbing and loosing
I've been so busy that Spark, at least the blogging part of it, has taken a back burner. Busy as in camping, biking, plenty of work, but plenty of play as well.
So this makes about 3 weeks of low carb eating. I'm going to call it more like ... Read more

Have read about the low-carb flu thing. Maybe it is, maybe not. D... Read more

It has been hard to get back on the path. Amazing how quickly the miles I built up diminish. Yesterday I did 2.4 and today just a little over a mile............but that is because I have other exercise plans for the day. My injuries are all gone... Read more
tripped by dogs.............
Headed out to do first real run in a couple of weeks and all went well until almost home, passed another walker with dogs and mine decided to wrap me up in the leashes. I hopped and stumbled until I almost got off the pavement, so most of my lan... Read more
Up early, the dogs were barking at some nefarious being persistently enough to be let out of the house. Dogs make the best alarms. Onto the greenway in search of more grapes and I was well rewarded with another large bag full. Now to wash and fr... Read more
on the lake
Three nights and three days later, here camping up in Virginia. This has been a good tonic. Yes, I'm still going to get a check up with my doc, but I'm pretty sure some of what has been going on is exhaustion from going without stopping. The fir... Read more
