Back near the beginning of Lent 2012 – so February of 2012 – my daughter asked me if I would give up meat with her for Lent. I have a problem with thinking that giving up something is a good way to go on a spiritual journey like Lent but that is for another post.… Continue reading Cheater, Cheater! Hamburger Eater!
I have been asked frequently what I do all day as some people think I sit on the computer and play. Well, I don’t. Imagine that! My day has, though, evolved from when it focused on the six kids and their lives only. One of the six – number 2 – is married and owns… Continue reading My Day
Saturday dawned very foggy at my house. I frequently get fog here as I am in a very sheltered valley and live by two creeks that are good sized. Realize that this plan was odd but looked like my 18 year old would get up and take me to the race. I would walk home.… Continue reading Vestal XX Recap

They are a bit further south than I am sitting up here in Upstate NY. I have always loved when the earth greens up. We’ve had quite a bit of rain… Continue reading Green, Green and More Green

June will be race 10 and possibly race 11.The Vestal XX this Saturday is a favorite of mine. I couldn’t run it last year due to injury so am excited,… Continue reading Races and My Ever-Filling Calendar
Last Thursday, after a quick trip to the grocery store so I didn’t leave my kids to starve, I headed out on a road trip to Albany. I had been planning this road trip for quite some time. I was kind of excited as the date drew closer because I not only was going to… Continue reading Mother Runners and a “House” Party
Wooot! Happy National Running Day! Disclaimer: I am being compensated to tell you about the below contest. I think it’s a great win-win concept so would tell you about whether I was being compensated or not. Opinions, as always, are all mine because we all know I am very opinionated.
