On a Roll with Honor Roll


Last night, I was really torn on whether to run/yoga or take a rest day.  This had actually been on my mind through out the day.  I WANTED to run and then do yoga, but was very aware that my

What’s the point?


Originally I started this blog as a way to keep track of my running, and to give me a place to review and summarize what was going on.  In that time I gained 3 or 4 followers that occasionally read

The last two weeks summarized in one post…


So, I’ve been quiet for a couple of weeks.  Let me reassure you, this is not because I went back to not exercising… Well, not for much of the two weeks. It started because our best friends came down from

Still able to walk down stairs!


It sounds like such a simple thing! Yesterday, I could feel my plantar faciitis bothering me still, but the pain was much, much lower than the previous two.  This of course meant I was game to try running again.  I

Pondering the proper pace


Up and at ’em Adam Ant!!!!! I won!  A true victory!   Now, what is this amazing victory you ask?  I GOT OUT OF BED IN TIME TO RUN!!!!!! WOOO HOOOO!!!!!   Apparently the post-election hangover, compounded by a post-stay-up-late-making-sure-your-son-does-2-weeks-of-homework-at-once, hits pretty hard!

Through Rain and Sleet and Snow and Political Hangovers…


So, I’m a political junkie. With help from Google and NPR (Washington DC‘s WAMU is a fantastic station!)  I have stayed up on the political scenery, both nationally and locally, as well as I possibly could.  I was also very scared
