    I must admit that my run was made a lot more joyous thanks to another Royals win last night. It's hard to believe that they lead the series and have guaranteed a return trip to KC if the series goes the distance. The beautiful weather this morning didn't hurt either. Hopefully, your Saturday i... Read more

    10/25/2014 2:24:43 AM, by TIMOTHY53

    It is so late. I didn't realize. I am rebuilding a disk drive and just got so wrapped up I didn't see that it was after 2:00 AM. At least last night I went to bed fairly normally and I fell right asleep. No hacking cough was keeping me from falling asleep. Then I woke almost 8 hours later and I... Read more

    I'm adding a B12 pill into my life and I'm glad that I did. My energy is a lot better than it has been. I'm glad that I took it because today we had a lot of driving. We went to the same place that we went to last week in Pekin, IL, to pick up one part this time. I did take a couple of naps but they... Read more

    It is that time of year again, time for the semi-annual army physical fitness test. We have been having some cold, windy, wet weather lately. Today wasn't too bad: cool and windy, but no rain. We opted to take the test in the indoor field house track because of the wind. After a brief warm u... Read more

    It was Luke's birthday on Wednesday. I had a plan. I was motivated. I did the opposite! In the end what it came down to was my realisation that celebrating my husbands birthday was more important than a silly challenge. One meal wasn't going to change anything! So I had a glass of wine ... Read more

    10/23/2014 8:34:54 PM, by MOBYCARP

    It's been a tough work week for scheduling. Monday wasn't so bad, but it was a non-running day. Tuesday the work load prevented me from running at lunch, and I had a 4:30 PM dental appointment that stretched too late for me to get to the 6PM Cobbs Hill run. So I ended up running from home at 6:30... Read more
