What a great experience I had in Texas.

Elizabeth and I left St. Louis last Wednesday at 4:30am and we got into Houston, Texas at 7:30pm. We stopped every 2-3 hours for potty breaks/food/stretching. We never stopped longer than 30 minutes. Elizabeth was a great traveler, she is 12. She is typically pretty impatient so I was a little worried she would be pretty whiney but she did not whine one bit during the entire trip. She said she knew she had to get into a mindset that she was going...

It is time to get real. I have been so inconsistent with logging my food since the second half marathon. My weight is creeping back up and it needs to stop. My membership with the small studio I have been doing the weight loss program ended in April. Luckily I still have 8 sessions left with them that they are going to let me use because I never cancelled them at the last minute.

This morning I put on a T-Shirt that has been a goal T-Shirt for many years, probably about 6 years. It is one of those T-shirts that ...

Last half marathon is done for the Spring! I don't do many of these but this was a destination half marathon. We traveled about 3 hours away to Champaign IL. I selected this course because it is supposed to be flat and fast. I have done a couple "flat" half marathons and never felt like they were easier. This was the first flat course I was doing after losing 45 pounds and getting fitter so I thought lets see how I feel about a flat course.

Well, I don't think I got a good c...
