    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.

    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...]
