what if...

what if...
I’ve done a lot of thinking the last 36 hours.  I’ve been running a few “what if” scenarios through my head.  I thought we’d play a game today and talk about them.  Sound good? Honestly, even if you answer no, I’m still going to go through with it.  So yeah, I’ll go through them one... Read more »

that run kicked my ass...

that run kicked my ass...
Wow.  Holy mother of God, that sucked.  It was brutal outside last night when I went out for my run.  I thought I’d be OK.  I was wrong.  I started fine. I warmed up and felt good.  In the heat I’ve been able to hit a 12:00 pace upper zone 1, low zone 2…and I... Read more »

weigh-in wednesday, week 44 results...
Week 44 is here, and results are in…I lost .9lbs last week, for a total loss of 105.7lbs.  The trip to Lexington coupled with family in town made for a fun time, but I didn’t lose as much as I could have. It’s still a loss, I’ll take it.  My magic number, to get to... Read more »

Just got home with K after her cardiology check up!  Not only did she pass with flying colors, she didn’t cry or freak out at all with any of the tests!  She’s a bad ass! Her cardiologist said she can take up organized sports, like soccer, basketball, even golf.  She can take up aerobic activities... Read more »

61 days...and 1 day...
Talking with a friend online this morning, it hit me that the Chicago Marathon is about 2 months away.  My stomach turned.  Holy effing crap, really?  A quick check of the calendar and my count down clock, yep…it is.  It just seems so soon!  I talked myself off the ledge fairly quickly, ok it took...

long run recap...

long run recap...
I’ll admit that last night I was on the fence with today’s run.  I tried psyching myself up, debated on whether I should run with music and debated on how to tackle the run.  One long out and back, or a couple- using our car as a make shift aid station.  I opted for the... Read more »

next week is intense...

My work busy week has come to an end, well officially it’ll end tomorrow after my long run.  I’ve enjoyed my rest day so far, and kicked it off this morning on Chicago Now Radio…if you missed it, you can go listen to it now.  So do that, and then come back and read.  I... Read more »

gettin' it on while training...

If you’re faint of heart, weak kneed or find this sort of thing too naughty for your tastes…maybe stop reading now.  Though I’m not going to give any sordid details.  See I like living, and by embarrassing Pam, said living that i like might cease to be. But yes, you’re right.  I want to talk... Read more »

this has been a long week and I'm tired...

The week of meetings is about over and I’ll be heading home this afternoon.  I’m excited about how things went and things on the horizon.  I’m really excited to see Pam and the girls and getting back into our routine.  I’m hopeful we’ll be able to get back into it easily. This weekend I’ve got... Read more »
