My Second Half!

My team mate and friend Ali suggested we all sign up for this half marathon in the beginning of September.  She said it would be fun and perfectly timed in our training.  I signed up, and then all the way up to the marathon I cursed her, but it actually was a great time and […]

The Bad Runs

Friends, I am seriously overdue for a set of good runs.  I can’t explain to you just how bad everything in that department has been going.  First, it started with a large hematoma on my left shin, which is finally feeling a little better.  Next, I broke my right pinky toe.  Nothing major, just another […]

Bring on the Torture!

Today was a good day!  I fulfilled a “dream” that I’ve been plotting for a few months now: I took a class and ran home from the gym.  I’ve been thinking of running to and from the gym with a class in the middle, but couldn’t quite figure out the logistics as to how I […]

Chugging Along

So we’re a couple of days in to hubby’s recovery, and so far so good.  He’s having a hard time slowing down and accepting help, but realizes how important it is.  Thankfully my parents live close and are basically saving us.  Thank goodness for grandparents!  Harry sure is enjoying the extra visitors! As you know, […]

Big Wheels Keep on Turnin’

When I first started my journey in muscle disease (because let’s face it, Harry has his journey but I […]

Making Plans

So last night was my first real day of the semester.  Tuesday’s lecture was cancelled due to snow, so last night we started with clinical. This semester is going to be challenging, but it can be conquered – with a plan! I operate best through lists, schedules, calendars, etc.  I like plans.  I use a […]

Giving Thanks!

I hope everyone’s Thanksgiving was full of family and delicious food! Harry and I had a great day, although the little man refused to nap.  Even without proper sleep, he was a great little boy and only ended up in time out once!  We are in a “throw everything on the floor” stage, so that’s […]

Just Give me a Moment

I’ve been in this whirlwind of work, school, and life.  Somewhere I’ve been trying to squeeze in exercise, and all I’ve had time for really is my long run with my buddy Kristen.  Add in a chest cold (that seems to finally be clearing up) and bitter temperatures, all at the beginning of the holidays […]
