Not that my December is not already full of items that need to be done. I am willing to jump full on into another challenge for the month. Why is it I think I can do a monthly challenge having to do with photographs or I can do a running challenge that lasts a little… Continue reading December is Coming!
I did a piece a week or so ago about all my plans to try to stay healthy over the holidays. Well, the best laid plans. I am doing most of them but never did get registered for the Holiday Bootie Buster Challenge. Then, I came across a post on Lindsay’s site about a new… Continue reading Elf for Health

I am sure that this location looks very different right now, a few days after Sandy. I was in Poughkeepsie at the beginning of October and had the opportunity to walk on the Walkway Over The Hudson.
I am a runner. I am not running the NYC Marathon. I would love to run that marathon some day but, even if I was registered, I would not run the NYC Marathon this year. In September of 2011, my area was hit by flooding. These were very severe floods. I was looking to run… Continue reading My Thoughts on the NYC Marathon
