race weekend is here...

race weekend is here...
And the nerves have kicked in this morning.  I’m less than 48 hours from starting the Rock n Roll 1/2 and I have no clue what the deal is.  I felt great last night.  Had a good run, I relaxed, slept fine.  Woke up this morning and my mind was racing already.  I dropped the... Read more »

anyone get the number of that truck?

Holy hell.  Yesterday I felt like crap when I woke up.  I tried to shake it off, and was OK during the day…but heading for home I went down hill.  I had emailed Coach Jen that I wasn’t feeling 100% and we agreed I’d see how I felt when I got home, and if OK... Read more »

weigh-in wednesday, week 42 results...

weigh-in wednesday, week 42 results...
Results are in…I lost 1.1lbs this week, for a total loss of 102.9lbs.  I’m averaging a 2.45lb loss per week and need to average a 1.21lb loss per week to hit 210 by 10.10.10. And I need pants, again…partially because of the lip gloss incident Sunday, but because they’re too big!  I definitely need new... Read more »

whoa, what a night...

Last night I was out in Arlington Heights for the Runner’s High n Tri Q&A with Chrissie Wellington, three time Ironman Champion and world record holder!  It was a fantastic evening!  Hearing Chrissie talk about the sport was a treat, and being able to share that with the 400+ people in attendance was cool too! ...

Help me Billy Mays; I’ve got tough, dried in make up stains! I know what you’re thinking…what’s the deal with the Billy Mays picture?  Well let me explain.  It was quite a weekend!  Seriously, some good and some bad…but I’m kind of glad we’re past it.  From PG with her puking and double ear infection...

My long run before race week...

My long run before race week...
Last night PG decided to cough her self to vomiting.  After cleaning her up and trying to calm her down, she fell asleep around midnight.  I came real close to texting Dave and telling him I’d run later in the day.  I decided I’d wait and see how I felt when I got up and... Read more »

reflecting back on a busy week and looking ahead on my rest day...

reflecting back on a busy week and looking ahead on my rest day...
I talked about how busy the week was going to be, and now that I’m through it…hot damn, it was hectic.  I had something going on everyday in addition to working a full day.  Needless to say I’m grateful rest day is here.  Next week isn’t as bad, though I do have a few things... Read more »

Bally Total Fitness responds to my open letter...

A week ago I wrote a letter to Bally Total Fitness to “thank” them for the service I received nine months ago when I first decided to get in shape.  Typing it, and rereading it made me realize how ticked off I really was about it.  I got a lot of comments on that post,... Read more »

random thoughts...

What a week so far!  I’m glad it’s winding down though and I get to hang out with Pam and the girls tonight.  K told me this morning she didn’t sleep well last night because I wasn’t home. Doh!  I told her tonight we’d hang out and have some fun. Today we’ve got an office... Read more »

weigh-in wednesday, week 41...still losing...
Week 41 is here, and I have to admit, for a quick minute I thought about stopping the weigh-in wednesdays.  Part of me felt like it’s lost a little of the luster having hit the 100lb mark.  But I’m still trying to lose and still trying to beat Dave to 210.  So I’m going to... Read more »
