After I talked about the John J. Kelley Ocean Beach Run in last week’s Tuesday Ten, Laurie asked me what the 11.6 mile race “was.” I think she meant like 5K or 10K or Half Marathon. Well, the answer is none of the above. I’ve never actually heard the story about why the race is that distance. Actually I think it’s really 11.78, even though it’s advertised as 11.6.
During the course of that race, I will get to see this awesome sight. I’ll also see them while I train. I’m so lucky!
The great thing about being a new runner who races is that you really don’t have anything to compare to. Old runners like me have all these previous race times and PRs and such that can really mess with your mental state. Since I decided to start the half marathon training program, I need to get all thoughts of time out of my head and just train to finish and for fun.
I did make the all veggie version of the crustless quiche. It’s just as yummy as the other versions. I put broccoli, mushrooms, zucchini, asparagus and scallions in it. Next time I think I’m going to use mushrooms, spinach, artichoke hearts and roasted red peppers. Oh the possibilites are endless. Thanks again to the cooking whiz Biz for the basic recipe!
Have I mentioned that I really want to win my battle against my thyroid and thus, my scale? I want to be slender. Period. Is that so wrong?
I’m trying to balance exercise, eating right, work, meal planning, housekeeping and half marathon training. I’m trying to get my thyroid back in balance and cooperating so that I’ll quit bouncing up and down between 175-180. I’m trying to be careful with money because of all the “unexpected” expenses we’ve had lately. I’m trying to figure out who I really am and what I like. Some days I feel exhausted from all this trying that I’ve been doing.
For the last time people, the word is "LOSE" not "LOOSE". Unless you are talking about your clothes. You lose weight. Then your clothes are loose. Can you tell how much this annoys me?
Here's the exciting news! I’ve decided that when I get to 200 posts or 100 followers (whichever comes first) I am going to do some giveaways. I’d planned on doing one when I’d lost my first 10 pounds – instead of rewarding myself, I’d reward you. But it’s taking so long that I’m going this other route. Only thing is the number will have to say 102 because both Shelley and Jack Sh*t have followed me twice. Does that mean they really, really like me?
Finally, I have been inspired by Miz’ “I Am My Own SuperHero” campaign. Miz, here is my answer:
