mid-week randoms

It’s been a long time, I know.  Perhaps I should start calling these “mid-year randoms”.  I apologize to those who do visit and see nothing new posted. – Things are kaput with Scott, as of awhile now.  We wound up hanging out one more time after the last post.  I had a bit of a …

sidelined…again!

Dammit, it seems that aggressive pedaling in my spinning class on Monday, paired with wearing ballet flats for 3 days straight has caused a fun little flair up of achilles tendonitis in my left ankle.  Fuck me. It wasn’t until after I got home last night after picking up my race stuff for Sunday, that …

(almost) mid-week randoms

Last Saturday, I ran the 5th Avenue Mile.  I did not do as well as I wanted to, but I at least did better than last year’s effort.  So, I guess it was a success.  I am noticing that my hammy’s are being little bitches these past couple weeks and I really need to stretch …

pushing myself to the finish

I had long ago signed up to do the Fitness Mind+Body+Spirit Games, which is an annual 4-mile race in Central Park.  This is what happened on Saturday morning. 4:05AM: Woke up.  I think it was the cat yakking up a fur ball that woke me up.  I got out of bed and in a zombie-like …

(almost) mid-week randoms!

I have finally entered the 21st century and bought a new all-in-one printer.  Took me long enough.  So, now I have the capabilities to scan pictures.  Thus will begin the long process of digitally cataloging thousands of pics so I have them all on a hard drive (because in reality, if there were a fire, …

a great, inspirational and enlightening read

I just finished the book, I Am The Central Park Jogger by Trisha Meili.  I vaguely remember hearing about how a woman was viciously beaten, raped and left for dead in Central Park in the Spring of 1989.  I was an 8th grader back then and paid little mind to the news, as my attentions …

mid-july randoms

I was finally able to find a maxi-dress that was just right.  I’m short, like 5’2/5’3…most maxi-dresses are too long and I’d wind up tripping over the hem.  I finally found one that hits perfectly at my ankle while I am wearing flats!  Thank you, J.Crew. I had a great night out with bestie and …

tour of flushing meadows corona park

So, despite having completed 41 New York Road Runner races over the past 3 years, I’ve never run one in Queens. Until today. This morning I woke my sorry ass up at 5:30AM to head out to Flushing Meadow Corona Park in Queens. Better known for the park that houses the National Tennis Center and …

mini 10k

This past weekend I had a 10K, the Mini.  Never mind that I hadn’t run in three weeks, I at least finished it without any of the three “P’s” – Passing out, Puking, or Pooping myself.  If I can avoid all of those, then it was a successful race, no matter how long it took …

randoms on 4/30

It is now in full countdown mode: 4 weeks until I jet off to the DR.  Woo hoo!  That means I need to make every attempt at clean living to shave off the excess weight I’m carrying.  I feel it when I run, when I am sedentary, when I breathe, when I put on clothes.  …
