Victory in the tri-ing!

I am back..finally.   Turns out I am not good at keeping all my plates in the air and I let this one drop.  Now that I have a few less plates spinning and a little more time I can finally catch up on those items that I put on the back burner. I did complete […]

Gifts of the Heart

I had a gentle reminder last week about the importance of gifts from the heart.  First when I witnessed it and second when I saw the photo that captured the simple joy of giving.   My grandson, Cristiano, gave his mother some “flowers” for her birthday. It was a sweet moment for both of them. The […]

Glenda the Good Witch was right….

We all know Dorothy from the Wizard of Oz.  Glenda the Good Witch told her to “follow the yellow brick road” which Dorothy did for the most part with a few detours along the way.  After surviving the wicked witch , the flying monkeys and picking up a few hitchhikers along the way ( the […]

Time to put on my “big girl” panties and hit the reset button on my running!

Well faithful readers I am getting closer to posting on a Monday ( today is Tuesday for the calendar impaired)   perhaps I will hit it next week but I am offering no guarantees. January is almost over and I spent most of it hitting the reset button, slowing down and reading directions (what a concept)! […]

Multi task and you may end up taking a public bath!! or worse

Mulit tasking seems to have become an art form despite all the studies that say our brains really can’t perform several functions at the same time.   Let me rephrase that.  Our brains can’t handle doing several tasks at the same time and do them well. Still we try.  All of our electronic gear makes us […]

Marathon Wed???If only my training could be like studying for a final exam…

So its Marathon Monday on a Tuesday , Wednesday.  Don’t say I didn’t warn you that some of these would be late.  Hey life happens and around here it seems to be happening in many dimensions. Perhaps that’s why today is one of those days  when I wish training for an athletic event WAS like […]

Marathon Monday : If life is a marathon I desperately need a rest stop.

Welcome to my Marathon Monday Posts.  Happy Monday.   While I am not officially registered for the Marine Corps Marathon I am already committed to it so starting today and every Monday until the marathon and possibly beyond that you will be seeing my “Monday Marathon ” posts. These won’t always be about the actual marathon.   […]

Semper Fi…the weather made me do it!

Sometimes I just know.   Its that feeling in my gut.  Intuition.  It feels right and I know I will regret it if  I don’t do it. It can be about other people, family, friends, acquaintances or it can be about ME!! The powerful ones are those that come to me and I think really?  No […]

Cough and Stand Up Straight….

I was going to title this “Cough but Don’t Bend Over” but I thought too many people might take it the wrong way.  So I titled it the opposite, however it means the same thing. I speak from recent experience.  Clean thinking here please.  Trying to keep this blog on the PG side of things. […]

Keeping the “girls” in check and happy

Have you ever wondered who designs  our bras let alone sports bras?  Most women would agree that there is some conspiracy out there or maybe even a department that secretly figures out which bras are our favorites and then discontinues them at the EXACT moment we need to replace our favorite bra. Sizing is another […]
