One Half-Marathon Down, 19 to Go

Posted by on 29 Sep 2008 | Tagged as: my life.

This Saturday morning, I ran in the inaugural Fort-4-Fitness Half-Marathon. There were 2,000 in my race, along with another 1,000 running a shorter 4-mile run/walk. I had a pretty bad race, and I am still beating myself up about it, even though I beat one of my goals. I for sure wanted to be under […]

Racing this Weekend

Posted by on 24 Sep 2008 | Tagged as: my life.

I am getting very anxious to run my half-marathon this weekend. This will be my first half-marathon in 10 years–and I’m not going to be even remotely close to my time back then. This week I’ve been tapering my workouts (running less distance, less speed) in order to feel really great come Saturday morning. I […]

Long Run Aches and Pains.

Posted by on 15 Sep 2008 | Tagged as: my life.

Yesterday afternoon I went out for a long run with Isaac. 11.4 miles later, we returned back home. We stopped twice for a brief water break, and were cooled by a slow but steady sprinkling of rain, with the occasional shower. After the run, I was completely exhausted. Today, my calf muscles are so very, […]

I’ve been running lately.

So I’ve been running a lot more lately, getting ready for the Fort Wayne certified (that means it counts) half marathon. Last weekend Isaac and I went out for a long run, and it was the first time I’ve been out over an hour in two years, I believe. It felt great! We are looking […]

I’m curious…do you get enough exercise on a daily (or weekly) basis? I’ve really been trying to exercise more this summer, and it comes and goes. I have done a better job of walking to work (8 minute walk one way), and also have been running (for the Fort Wayne certified half marathon in two […]

My Daily Weigh-in

Posted by on 07 May 2008 | Tagged as: my life.

Every morning, I do a weigh-in. This means I know how much I weigh on any given day. I watch for trends–like, I typically put on a pound or two over the weekend, and I am normally at my lowest weight of the week on Friday morning. By measuring my weight every morning, I am […]

This week, I have walked to work as much as possible. I have walked to work on Tuesday – Friday. I wouldn’t have driven my car at all in that time, except I had to get a couple of bags of softball equipment and didn’t want to carry 30 lbs of awkward bags for a […]

Fort-4-Fitness Half-Marathon is in My Future…

Posted by on 18 Feb 2008 | Tagged as: my life.

This is an official announcement: I am running the Fort-4-Fitness Half-Marathon on August 27 in Fort Wayne. I am excited about this race, and know it will be a great experience for me. I had considered the Indy Mini this year, but it is in May, which doesn’t give me a lot of time to […]

Soccer League Recap

Posted by on 30 Jan 2008 | Tagged as: my life.

Just one final recap of my recent excursion on a seven-week indoor soccer league. This time, I have the photo to prove I was a part! In the front is Terry, who scored five of our six goals during the tournament. In the middle row, left to right, is: Guy, Sergio, Scott, Bo and Sean. […]

My Soccer Tourney

Posted by on 28 Jan 2008 | Tagged as: my life.

Friday night was my 30 & Over league’s tournament. (Yeah…I’m barely old enough to play in that league!) There are eight teams in the league, which means there are three rounds–quarter finals, semi-finals, and the championship game. We were 4-2, and were the 3-seed. We won our quarter-final match fairly easily. In the semi-finals, we […]

Playing Soccer in 2008….

Posted by on 21 Jan 2008 | Tagged as: my life.

This year, for the first time, I picked up playing in a soccer league. Not just any soccer league, but a 30-and-over league. I figure since I don’t have a bunch of young energetic punks running circles around me, I can keep up decently. This past Friday night, our team, Espresso, completed our regular season […]
