Just wanted to give my minions, all 3 of you, an update. Because of happenings beyond my control I am taking a break. What does this mean? It means starting over again once I can somehow develop a schedule and a plan to run. Right now it is not a practicality for me to run for various reasons. Working the hours I am along with no cooperation on the home front makes it all but impossible to run, especially when the weather has been so terrible. I am able to sneak out occationally for a quick 3 miles around the house, but I do not feel comfortbale leaving my 11 yr old babysitting her younger brother (5) and sister (3) for longer than that.
With any luck my situation will become easier in a few months and I promise...Ken really I get back out there. I do not like the fact that I have to put my life on hold, no matter what the reason.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day,

P.S. Best of luck to Bill from marathondudebill.... He is running in Myrtle Beach this weekend. Good luck with your bid to run a sub 2:50:00 You can do it!!!

Champions take chances, and pressure is a privilege.

There are more than 5, but 5 come to mind right off the bat, so that is the number. It is my blog and I get to pick!
The 5 things you want to do/learn before you die... Kind of a bucket list, hmmmm should write that down.
1. Learn to play an instrument...for me it is the piano.
2. Take dancing lessons...ala Dancing with the stars, not break or tap.
3. Go to Europe, Russia, Australia..not necessarily in that order.
4. Walk my daughters down the aisle....this one is kind of up to them.
5. Qualify for and run in the Boston Marathon.

I am thinking Iwill need to run a little more than I have been lately in order to make that last one happen. Patience grasshopper!!!!

Have a great day!

Every human spent about half an hour as a single cell.

I told one of the guys I bowl with that I haven't run in weeks and he said he hasn't run since he learned to fight!!! I thought that was really funny and figured I'd pass it along.
