Training for My πŸ’―

If you read my post from yesterday — you’ll know I’m wanting to belt out my 100 miler sooner than later. And, my sooner I mean — this year. I really, really, really — really, really, really — really really really want to accomplish this goal for many reasons including honoring my friend Robert Merriman. I’ve planned out my races pretty much from here until July 21st when I run my 180th race. I have…

Running from here onto July …

Hallelujah! January is now over. I absolutely hate January — it’s pretty much the Monday of months. I love the overturn into January from the holidays, but after January 1st — it just sucks. It’s somewhat because of the winter blues, but something horrible usually happens to me or others I love during the month. I have had a number of family members either pass away or get really sick during January — and it…

Time to commence — Operation Half Ass

I love organizing my fitness. I love mapping it all out. And, I love working toward those goals. Working toward these goals — whether their weight-loss or running related — is something I love and need. After my ‘More Grease for Greece’ campaign that I did from August to November to help me lose 35lbs. with the keto diet, I feel the need to hone in on my diet and workout regime, especially now that…

Thyroids, Ankles & Blurry Eyes …

Yesterday was a marathon of a day. A day of doctor appointments. I find it easier to just take a day off from work and get as many doctor appointments in as I can. I made appointments for the orthopedist, endocrinologist and optometrist — also known as the foot doctor, thyroid doctor and eye doctor. It really was a marathon of a day. My first appointment was with the orthopedist at TOSH Foot & Ankle…

A Detour on the ‘Road to 180’

I am awaiting my orthopedic appointment next Tuesday, but knowing that I am having to back out of the 48 hour race at Jackpot — I have naturally gone to a couple of alternate plans to my race schedule. Not just for 2018, but specifically toward my 180th race. My biggest worry more than running a 100 miles is making sure that my 180th race is the Handcart Days Half Marathon on July 21st. This…
