up and running again

I’ve gotta get back into running shape.  I just completed a 5-mile race last Sunday morning.  It was the first time I covered that distance in a really long time and let me tell you…I’m feeling it – in my legs, my hips.  Ouch.  While I am happy that I crossed the finish line without …

random thoughts 5/12

Some random stuff: I finally got my old peepers checked out and I am happy to say that I am no more blind than I was the last time I had an eye exam.  I am pretty much blind as a bat without contacts or glasses.  But with my contacts, I have 20/20 vision.  And …

yeah, only me

I’m a 100% certifiable… …wait for it… …might not be what you think… …or, probably it is… …klutz.  You thought I’d say something like “crazy cat lady”, right?  Well, yes, I am that, too.  But first and foremost, I am a klutz. I have had some fantastic falls in my life-to-date.  I typically fall a …

what to do now?

Some random updates: I’ve resumed eating.  I don’t eat a lot, but I get hungry and eat. So, this was a search term that brought someone to my blog today…twice!  “i don’t have a drinking problem. i drink, i get drunk, i fall down, no problem” For the first time ever, I started a race …

no sleep till brooklyn

At the beginning of the year, St. Elmo registered for a bunch of NYRR races.  He intends to fulfill the 9+1 requirement to gain automatic entry into the 2012 NYC Marathon.  NYRR has a program in place for their members to get this Marathon automatic entry for the following year: 1) be a member as …

countdown commences

I had been putting if off for too long.  It was something I needed to face.  Something that needed be out in the open.  Something that I simply couldn’t ignore any longer. I stepped on the scale this morning. Cue the screaming. The number that was displayed wasn’t horrific.  It was actually one pound less …

13.1 in the bitter cold (not me, silly)

I feel the need to boast a little about St. Elmo. This past Saturday morning, he along with 4,300+ runners, braved 14 degree weather to run the Manhattan Half Marathon.   A little over two loops of Central Park, they beat the steep Harlem Hills and Cat Hill twice, and raced uphill to the finish line …

flutter alert on a cold, windy morning

This past Sunday morning, I had a 10K race.  It was freezing cold and windy.  I was up at 6:30AM.  A friend that I was supposed to meet beforehand called to say that she was not going to do the run.  That made me go back-and-forth with whether or not I wanted to do the …

november 23rd

So, there’s one thing about me that sometimes bugs the crap out of me…I’m pretty good with remembering things (important dates, birthdays, stories, names).  In most cases, it is quite helpful and useful.  Other times, it causes me to remember unfortunate or unhappy things. Today, November 23rd… may not seem like an important date to …

flutter (that’s my heart)

So, it has finally happened.  Something I haven’t felt in a long, long time.  Three years to be exact.  I’m majorly “in like.” With St. Elmo.  When I blogged about our very first date, it seemed so unlikely that we would get to this point.  We had our second date about a month and half …
