Oh, how it’s changed from a three-month-old. And a newborn. I think if I knew then how little sleep I’d be getting now … well, my head might have imploded.
I’m a big believer in logging all your exercise. If only because when I write it down and see it all added together, it makes me feel really, really good about myself.
One of my fears when I subscribed for Runners World a few weeks after I started the Couch to 5K was that I would be really into it for the first couple of issues and then I would be sick of running and it would just come in my mailbox and shame me for not […]
Hi blog friends. Happy Halloween! Last year I remember eating a sickening amount of candy on Halloween and feeling so much remorse and regret the next day. When I think about the 10 pounds I gained between the 2011 Maine marathon and new year 2012, mentally I blame it all on Halloween and thanksgiving and […]

I don’t […]

So 1: Thank you everyone for all the kind words about my general malaise from the past few weeks, on the blog and in person. You’re too kind. I’m kinda embarrassed (in a good way) that people actually read this blog and it’s touching (in a good way) to hear from you. 2. Today was the return […]
