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 […]

Oh Mr. Race Photographer I’m ready for my close-up

As I sat down to edit this post  I started to smile wondering if this really was a post about how to get a good race photograph or just an excuse to exhibit a rare but good race photo of myself. A little of both.  As my friend and web designer Sherra said to me […]

Would you like fries with your latte?

I used to be a proud non-coffee drinker.  Couldn’t stand the stuff. I really wondered what the fuss was all about . My husband disliked coffee as well so when coffee drinkers came to our house they were out of luck. When I gave a party if a guest offered to bring something I would […]

So which was it? Trip to the ER or a great idea?

You all might remember that back in January of this year I blogged about my upcoming adventure with my new clipless bike pedals. If your memory is anything like mine (good but short) you might want to hit the link below and reread the original post. A great idea or a trip to the ER? […]
