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? […]

Aren’t we all kind of a Big Deal?

This photo says it all.  Little Miss Ava is a charmer in every way, beautiful blue eyes, a head full of curls and that wonderful toddler attitude that the world revolves around her,and ONLY her. Put her in this tank top and the package is complete! I just laughed when I saw her sporting this […]

Back in the saddle again

Its been awhile since I wrote a new blog post. Have I ever mentioned that I have turned procrastination into an art form? Actually procrastination is not the right word. There is no right word for this but a phrase “putting what I love to do last on the list” Turns out I have plenty […]

Keeping it simple

Did you ever wonder what would happen if we yanked the cord on everything? When did it get all so complicated? Even reading, one of my favorite pastimes is getting high tech. I do have a thing for books. I read them all, ..well most of them. I was using the library quite a bit […]

More than just a daily walk

Long before I started running I was a walker. 5:15 every week-day morning found me rolling out my bed and out the door. In the winter I appreciated the dark mornings that camouflaged my ratty, “grab what is warm” attire.  In the summer I appreciated sunglasses and hats to hide tracings of yesterdays mascara and […]
