    Ready to run (guest post) - Oct 9th, 2010
    Guest post: I’m here in a motel room in Spokane with my aunt for a race tomorrow morning on 10-10-10. After we got to Spokane and got settled in our motel we walked down to the Hilton Courtyard by the Spokane Convention Center to get our running numbers (1172 ME! and 1295 Aunt Awesome!). [more...]

    Working weekend - Oct 4th, 2010
    Wow! What a great weekend! And you want to know why? Well, it’s because I spent most of it in the homeland working toward three of my goals. [more...]

    Unhappily stressed - Sep 25th, 2010
    I’m really struggling this week. Actually, I’ve been struggling for a couple of weeks now. I’m sad and I feel quite helpless about it. I’m trying to cheer myself up but I can’t seem to manage it. I am pretty certain it’s just stress and worry; not depression. [more...]

    Great-grandma’s pickles - Aug 22nd, 2010
    Yay! Pickle-making weekend has finally arrived. And just in time, as I was out of pickles. [more...]

    Running commentary - Aug 8th, 2010
    When I run I think. Even when I’m listening to my iPod, my mind is racing through one thought after another. It jumps from here to there with silly randomness. I can’t control it; I’ve tried. But I suppose that it does tell a lot about the sorts of things that weigh on my mind... [more...]

    To train and listen - Jul 24th, 2010
    I am one of those people who pushes herself a little (a lot?) too hard when there’s a goal to be met. But I’m trying to listen to my body a little more so that I don’t push to the point of illness or injury. [more...]

    I ran; I nearly stumbled - Jul 5th, 2010
    I ran the Runner Stumbles 5K yesterday with my nephew. My cousin and her son joined us, too, which was a fun little treat. I have to say, I thought that my third race without Paul would have been easier, but for some reason I found it emotionally difficult to run this race without him. [more...]

    I’m a runner (?) - Jun 24th, 2010
    I’m a runner. Or at least I used to be a runner. Now I sort of fake it. But I hope that eventually I’ll remember that I used to love running. [more...]

    Climb that mountain high - Jun 10th, 2010
    Ow! Ouch! Owie! OK, not yet, but come tomorrow those are the words I will be exclaiming! [more...]

    Green with envy - Jun 9th, 2010
    I got a new toy today. It’s a lovely new, bright, and shiny 4 GB iPod Shuffle. It’s a pretty shade of green with a personalized inscription. [more...]

    Back to the gym - Apr 28th, 2010
    I found my way back to the gym today. It’s been just over a year since I last went and it felt a bit weird to be honest. Paul and I were runners and I tried to hit the gym 2-3 times a week before work then we’d run the Bill Chipman Trail or participate in a road race together on the weekends. [more...]

    Partners in Phun - Feb 8th, 2010
    My nephew, Haden, came out to visit so that we could run the Partners in Pain 5K together. We had a fantastically fun weekend! [more...]

    Fannying Around - Jan 25th, 2010
    It was the inaugural “Freeze Your Fanny, Scrabble Showdown, and Burns’ Supper Extravaganza” at the Ryan house! [more...]
