Goals Set and Goals Achieved

Last week in the MODRUN (MODified RUNning streak), my goal was to run between 1.5 and 2 miles each time. It started well and faded away towards the end of the week. Sunday – 2 slow miles with the run club, made possible only because I have amazing run-buddies  Monday – 1.81 miles early in the…

Thinking Out Loud (Olympic Edition)

Thinking out loud about… USA’s 30+ medals at the Olympics whereas Brazil isn’t in the top ten.  Actually, Brazil is in 21st place with 3 medals so far.  There should be a rule about not overshadowing the host or something. Okay, I know that’s ridiculous but… it just feels bad.  Speaking of Olympics, I want to be…

Summer MODRUN Day 1

Summer MODRUN starts today. The MODRUN is what I call my Modified Running Streak – I run everyday for 6 days and take a rest day on Saturday. I’ve done it before, usually to kickstart my running after an extended break. There are no rules except that I have to run at least 1 mile every…

Friday Featured Female

5 Moments I loved this week: I’m the featured female on The Valentine RD today. Me! Love it! Watching the Biggest Loser Finale last night and seeing the bodies I expect after the major transformations. Remember last year’s controversy? Read here and here. I was rooting for Rob and in my book he won with over…

Snow Day

Snowy scenes from today’s installment of MODRUN2015     Today’s treat: Wearing these rabbit fur-trimmed gloved that I love but don’t wear nearly often enough.

Weekend In The City

After church, Sabbath lunch turned into an intense Bible study/discussion with some friends. Week 3 of MODRUN2015 and a blizzard is predicted to start later today. Once it starts snowing, I’ll be doing my dailies on the treadmill but until then, I’m still enjoying cranking out a couple miles outside. Saw this cool adult tricycle at…

Currently

Watching: NBC Today show and visualizing myself as the next guest, promoting my latest success. It’s one of the goals on my Vision board and I can’t wait for my sit-down with Matt Lauer. Writing: Trying to come up with a few bridge chapters for a book I’m working on. Reading: Tony Robbins’ blog – change…

What If

Regrets, I’ve had a few; But then again, too few to mention. I did what I had to do And saw it through without exemption… Those lyrics are from “My Way”, a song made famous by Frank Sinatra, and it popped into my head when Shelly tweeted the prompt for this weeks Write or Die: What do you think…

Week 2 Day 2

Monday’s run. Short. My ankle didn’t hurt (I thought I might have twisted it on Sunday) but the soles of my feet did. I think the daily pounding of the pavement might be taking its toll. And it was cold. Except, Monday’s weather is predicted to be the highest temps all week. So, MODRUN2015 Week…

MODRUN2015 Week 2

I like rain. I like splashing through puddles when I’m wearing waterproof boots. I like how clean the streets are when it rains. I like how rain is an equalizer – everyone is affected. I even like running in the rain… make that drizzle… but the kind of rain that fell yesterday didn’t make for…

Trending In My Life This Week

Five moments trending in my life this week: Falling in love with Gold shoes from Nine West. I wanted these open toes but they weren’t available in the stores so I’m ordering them online. Meeting an old best-friend I haven’t seen in almost 7 years in the supermarket. Yes, that really happened and I forgot to…

On The Run

Notes from Week 1 Day 5 of  #MODRUN2015 Somehow, running in 27 degree weather feels colder than the 20 degrees yesterday. Well, honestly, it felt like that at the start of the run. But after the first mile or so, I could still use my hands, where yesterday, I couldn’t so maybe it’s warming up. But it’s…
