Exercise: We had our first long in for our half marathon training. We did four miles, and it was pleasant. I started using my Fuel Belt, a belt that holds two small water bottles,  and for me, the belt helps to support my back. I use water more for pouring on my head, face, and […] Read More

I met up with Sonthe (dietitian) yesterday, and our meetings are shorter and more pleasant (LOL) now that I'm behaving. The highlight of the appointment was when she told me that she believes that this final 100 lbs will be the easiest to lose because I have worked through some issues, and have been on […] Read More

I joined the Birmingham Track Club yesterday morning on their Saturday long run. I planned on running 4-5 miles, and ended up running 6. It felt like I ran 10... I was dumb enough to run a route without a map, thus I didn't know how far out I was. As the temperature starting rising, […] Read More

2012 Country Music Mini Marathon Including Rodney Atkins Concert thumbnail

Today's Country Music Mini Marathon (2.6 miles) was fantastic!!! I was so glad that the Rock N' Roll organizers provided this option because if they didn't, I wouldn't have gone to the race. It gave the injured, slow, non-runners, or under trained folks an opportunity to participate in the Country Music event. There were 31,000 runners at today's marathon, […] Read More
