I runned fast to be better than I used to be. It is out there on the road where I find myself arguing with my thoughts. Where is the finish line?

Why God?


I get so mad at the scale. The ginger in me comes out when the number is the same. Same! I have worked so hard in the last two weeks. I want to throw that evil thing across the room. Sigh.

No pounds off the booty. However, I have lost inches. I guess that counts. My coach said to "shad up" about the scale and in fact, don't use it but once a month. I am obsessed. I have to use it every day. I feel better. My pace is better.

I don't like how I look.

It is killing me.

Clean eating and exercise feeds the soul. Unfortunately, at my age, everything is harder and takes longer. Why, God?

That's all I have to say about that.

Running With The Dinosaurs

Oh, goodness me!

(cough, cough)

Sorry, it's a little dusty in here.

Running has been awesome! I didn't realize how much longer and farther I can go on my long runs when I have music in my ears and I am not listening to my every dying breath. Whodathunk?

When my music thingy got lost...I just punted. What I didn't know is how much decrease in output would occur.

I'm glad I got my phone to download some music. It isn't great and I have to manually click on forward because the auto shuffle doesn't work. Why? Because iphone3 is a yesterday's technology and is becoming obsolete. A dinosaur, if you will.

I like to run with the dinosaurs. Plus...IT IS FREE!

One day I will find my music device of awesomeness. I just know I put it in a really good safe place. Erg.

The food plan is going well this week. Pre-measured containers are the super big idea birthed from a genius! Someday I hope to meet their makers, but for right now...I am just putting the food in and taking it to work. When it is all gone...that's all I get. Most of the time I am stuffed and don't eat it all. And guess what? I am always at my proper calorie level with the fresh foods. No grease. No carb overloading. No sugary sweets. Why? They are not in there. Ta da!

Maybe I will be able to defeat many in a Spartan game after all.

Right now...I will not be last!
