5k Epiphany

5k Epiphany

Here it is: I am no longer an athlete…but I will be one again. It’s incredible how quickly you lose it when you don’t train all the damn time. Wow! My morning started out GREAT! I’d lost 3.2lbs and felt back on track – finally. A sense of accomplishment and confidence overwhelmed me. I didn’t … Continue reading

“It made me feel weird.”

“It made me feel weird.”

My best friend read my This Is Part Of It post and told me it made her feel weird. Weird? Seriously. WTF? That was poetic and emotional and raw. Whatever. It didn’t settle well with me. Clearly. So, I pushed her and asked her why it made her feel weird.  She didn’t want to get into it, but … Continue reading

Weekend ReCap

Weekend ReCap

Kevin, Alicia and I ran the Tap N’ Run 4k this week. “Ran” is generous – more like me did a little speed walking. Regardless, it’s beyond fun. The whole idea of the race is to drink and run. Ah-mazing! Here are a few pics! How was everyone else’s weekend? Don’t forget – there’s still … Continue reading

Soothing the Soul

I had a much needed weekend of soul soothing and what I’d like to think of recovery and the road to redemption. After gorging myself on Friday morning with a pint of Ben and Jerry’s Half Baked I realized I couldn’t continue down that dangerous road. I made a promise to myself as I licked … Continue reading

My Exercise Confession

My Exercise Confession

It’s confession time. Forgive me Father, for I have sinned. Alicia and Powers are signed up to do a half marathon. They signed up to voluntarily run 13.1 miles. Kevin’s always wanted to do one. And then there’s me. And in case you have forgotten – I HATE RUNNING. In fact, here it comes – … Continue reading

The Storm is Over Now…

The Storm is Over Now…

I feel like I can make it…the storm is over now. I gained 4.8lbs in my 6 week hiatus. I am happy as a clam about it too. 100% okay with this. Additionally, my last official Weigh In at WW was in the morning before breakfast/any intake, in workout clothes and on a Friday (after … Continue reading

Peachtree City Tri Recap

Peachtree City Tri Recap

I’d been watching the weather report all week and praying to the sweet lord that the rain would hold off. No. Apparently my new thing is racing in the rain. I did the triathlon with my bestie, Alicia. The hotel we stay at is a short bike ride from the course, so no one drives … Continue reading

Why you rain on me?

Why you rain on me?

Look how excited I was after the ride was over…the only time it wasn’t raining. So, Up the Creek Without a Pedal was – let’s just say I needed a damn paddle. It rained Oh dear God did it rain. It rained lightly, it rained in torrential downpours, it rained for an hour…it didn’t stop … Continue reading

My thought on hills…

My thought on hills…

I almost hate hills as much as I hate running…maybe more – it’s a toss up. I hate everything about hills – especially the way my boobs take on a life of their own. I digress, I’m doing the “Up The Creek Without a Pedal” ride tomorrow. It’s 45 miles. I was assured by Kevin … Continue reading

Broken Bone Athlete

Yesterday was the day I once upon a time dreaded: my yearly physical. Ya’ll – it was awesome. I was informed that I have the blood pressure of an athlete. WHAT?! Me? (dear body, catch up.) At first I was panicking because I thought something had to have been wrong for it to be that … Continue reading
