The Outer Banks (and a quick 26.2 mile run while I was there)

November 17, 2013


Race Day!  Oh yes, I almost forgot that was why we came.  With mine and my husband’s ever-evolving, hectic schedules, we never get to see each other.  He is fast asleep when I get home, and gone to work before I awake.  We have a wonderful relationship via texts and Instagram. So I sneakily snuck […]

Running and Peeing

July 25, 2013


I have reached the pinnacle of the out of shape slump between training for marathons.  I have to say, it happens amazingly fast.  I am by no means near the level of out-of-shape I was at the beginning of this Year of Forty journey, but some muscly areas have turned more jelloey.  As is my […]

Weigh In 5- I must be crazy

April 1, 2013


OK, here’s the pics.  I know you just saw them the day after the marathon, so it’s only been 2 weeks, but I have to keep it legit and post on the first of every month.  No one else is going to make me accountable, and knowing you are taking half naked pictures to post […]

Weigh-in #3!

March 2, 2013


You might see here that my photos have a different artistic approach this month than in previous weigh-in shoots.  I had to switch photographers at the last moment due to pressing deadlines.  Instead of my usual Media Arts/Photography major husband and our pretty good digital camera, I was lucky enough to land a new up […]

February Weigh In

February 1, 2013


It is that time.  The time when the scale, measuring tape, and digital camera come out.  I look to these weigh-ins with the same mixed feelings of dread, excitement, anticipation and curiosity as I do the still beginning of the trail when I am staring down a fifteen mile run.  How much will the scale […]

Progress report! Let’s talk FOOD.

January 22, 2013


Halfway home from fatty town! First of all, I have been an on again off again vegan or vegetarian for well over twenty years.  I was doing great on my plant strong way until I got a little bit sidetracked with a big move and lots of changes in my life, so I decided to […]
