so close, yet so far away...

Ten days seems like such a short amount of time, and yet it seems like an eternity.  I know it’ll be here soon enough, and can’t wait! I’m dealing OK with the taper, but I have found I have a lot of extra energy, like I’m jittery.  Almost the same feeling after having 5 cups... Read more »

weigh-in wednesday, week 51...the home stretch...

Results are in…this week I lost .6lbs, not a huge amount, but over all I’ve lost 110.1lbs! Kick ass! I’m happy/ satisfied/ in awe of how much weight I’ve lost this past year.  While I’m not 100% sure what I want to do next year, I do know I want to maybe drop a few... Read more »

aw, freak out!

aw, freak out!
Because I did this morning.  I’m pretty sure it’s because I slept like crap and overslept this morning.  Why did I sleep like crap?  Well, PG has a cold, and was up from 1230am until 2 maybe.  And when PG is up, Pam and I are up.  I was still planning on getting up and... Read more »

weekend recap...

weekend recap...
Yep, 13 days to go! This weekend was my last big one for runs before the marathon.  Saturday I got up at 4am to get my 2:30:00 run in before Pam had to go to work. I got out before 5am and decided that since it was my last big run, I’d make it a... Read more »

weekend running...

With a taper in the very near future, I have 2 runs this weekend.  Tomorrow I’ve got a 2:30:00 run on the books, and a one hour fartlek on Sunday.  I also realized tomorrow PG has her 18-month checkup in the morning.  Which means the girls and I will have to drive Pam to work,... Read more »

the push through to 26.2...
At the end of yesterday’s post I talked about trying to raise more funds for the American Heart Association.  I’ve talked about why I chose to run for the AHA…for my daughter K, and for my dad.  Some people have asked how they can show support, or show some love…well, I have an idea.  While...

Results are in…I lost 1.2 lbs this week, for a total loss of 109.5 lbs!  With three weeks to go, I still have a shot of hitting 115 lbs..we’ll see. I’m not going to guarantee anything, but at this point anything more I lose is gravy. I need to start planning a post marathon clothes... Read more »

a long run, a mural and a video...

a long run, a mural and a video...
So Friday night I’m on the Kennedy on the way to go pick up PG after work and as I’m chugging along, I get up by the Bank of America Mural building and…I see they’ve added the tenth person to the mural.  It was trippy and cool all at once.  It was me…whoa, I’m on... Read more »

self sabotage...

self sabotage...
I’ve debated talking about what’s on my mind, mostly because I go back and forth on the subject.  I find stories like mine, where people have gotten motivated, made a lifestyle change, lost weight and gotten active very inspiring.  I have days when I look at what I have done and feel as thought it’s...

run smart...

run smart...
On Tuesday I talked about routines and superstitions and after hearing from folks, I see I’m not alone.  Ever since “puke run” I’ve been focusing on running smart, and I think running smart sort of ties into that discussion.  What? No way, are you crazy?  Wait, just hear me out… Coach Jen has had me... Read more »
