Adjusting my 2011 goals...

Adjusting my 2011 goals...
We’ve talked about them…running the Chicago Marathon in under 5 hours, completing a triathlon, losing more weight, toning up and getting stronger. Coach Jen and I started on that path, with those goals in mind on November 1st, and I struggled with the new routine. Biking was OK, but the swimming was kicking my butt.... Read more »

Nap time!

Nap time!
…because I’m napping. I feel a little guilty, only a little though. Pam and I were talking before she went to work. She was moping a little because I had the chance to nap and she wouldn’t as she’d be at work, and napping is frowned upon. I told her I wouldn’t nap…she didn’t buy... Read more »

Weigh-in Wednesday, Year 2, Week 12...

Results are in…holy crap, I gained 3.3lbs. I shouldn’t act surprised. I mentioned Monday I’d have a gain. In all honestly it’s not that bad and I’m not super concerned I just posted my biggest gain in over a year. I’m not worried because I know I’ll lose it. I know I’ll be eating better... Read more »

I am sloth...

I am sloth...
Or at least I feel like it after the holiday week. I went way off the reservation food wise the last few days. Each day seemingly got worse. Yesterday was chili at my aunt’s…I paid for that all night. Ugh. I woke up this morning frightened to step on the scale…unless a miracle happens between... Read more »

The post where, work, my personal life and volunteering collide...
I think this might be a first. I don’t usually blog about my personal life, work and volunteering at the same time. As a rule of thumb I try to keep them separate.  They don’t often mingle…until now. And honestly, I’m excited! Viamedia is sponsoring the American Heart Association Start! Running Team in 2011! My... Read more »

Weigh-in Wednesday, Year 2, Week 11...
Results are in…and I’m flat this week. Ok, it’s actually a .1 lb gain but relatively speaking, I’m flat. I’ll take it. With the holiday season here, in the final stretch, I admit I haven’t been eating the best. I’m lucky I’m working out otherwise I’d be up a creek. I’m glad the holidays are... Read more »

Long run recap, Christmas week preview...
That’s right Apolo Anton Ohno, I did 7.2 miles! As usual, the last few days have been busy. Though I did take Friday off and had some me time…I went to see Tron: Legacy and loved it. I stopped in the office for a bit, and got one of the first posts written for Run... Read more »

P4A: American Heart Association

P4A: American Heart Association
If you’ve followed my story, you know why I run for the American Heart Association. I run for my daughter K, and for my dad. I thought I’d share some information about the American Heart Association. First, here is what the American Heart Association can do with… $1,000: Reaches 500 women with our Go Red... Read more »
