Reining it in Whether I Like it or Not

Time To Rest As I lay down on the table for my dermatologist to remove another basal cell from the back of my left knee, he asked what the chances were that he could convince me to stay inactive for two weeks while it healed. He knows me well… I immediately spouted off what I’d […]

Checking Off A Bucket List Item – Mountain Biking In Moab Bill had been dreaming of mountain biking for some time and trying it out while we were in the mountain biking capital of North America seemed like the perfect time to start. I had only returned to biking last summer after taking a twenty-year […]

Getting Back Into Running After Vacation And A Father’s Day Shout-out

Last week I talked about coming home from vacation to rest, but even so, this was a very busy week. Yes, I had some down time on Wednesday and Thursday afternoons without clients, but every time I sat down to work on my laptop, I started nodding off. I have got to get a better […]

Downed Trees And Flooded Trails, But I Got It Done; And Without The Help Of My Treadmill

It’s official! I signed up for the Grand Teton Half Marathon which means that on June 2nd I will be toeing the starting line at 6,169 feet gasping for air before I even start running… My plan is to hydrate, hydrate, hydrate and research recipes for adding extra electrolytes into my drinks. Prior to the Grand […]

From Football To Feet

It’s weird that I get so excited about the Super Bowl since the Redskins haven’t been close to playing in it in a couple of decades. I have no skin in the game this year, but I’ll be cheering for Kam Chancellor and Nick Sorensen (both Hokies) to have a good game, so by default, I’m […]

Weekly Running Recap With A Little Sand Thrown In

It’s hard for me to believe that it’s time for another weekly running recap, but being on vacation has all of my days running together! Last week’s runs included time on asphalt, concrete, sand, and a boardwalk.  My legs would have loved for all of my runs to be on the boardwalk, but a girl’s […]

That Odd Looking Spot Sure Doesn’t Look Like Melanoma

WARNING Graphic Picture Near End Of Post A flat brown spot showed up on my leg about ten years ago and I dismissed it as an early age spot. The next time I saw my dermatologist, Dr. Ha, I had him take a look at it.  It seemed benign and he wasn’t concerned at the […]

Friday Tidbits

One of the many reasons I’m looking forward to spring is because my laundry will go down dramatically when it gets warm! My husband and I are both runners, so you can only imagine the dirty laundry we go through, just counting our running clothes. I can’t wait for shorts, short sleeved shirts, and singlets!  […]

Gym Rodent?

Look what I found this morning outside sunning himself on the rock wall like a lizard!  Yep, that’s an escaped Indian bitter melon!  See, I actually did find something to do with them.  Tee Hee!  Full credit goes to one of my clients that said it looked like some kind of Australian subterranean rodent… so […]

Friday Night Fun

Our son Daniel hit our basement gym tonight before heading out to the local sports bar with friends to watch the Wizards game. Since I don’t have cute little babies or puppies to post photos of, I thought I’d post pictures of the next best thing, my handsome son! My hubby and I joined longtime […]

Setting Up My Website Is So Confusing

Stay tuned! This is taking longer than I thought! Questions: Who uses WordPress? If you use WordPress, what theme do you use?  Do you use a free one, or upgrade?  ~ I’m going nuts finding one that has the things I want. How long have you been blogging?
