I feel better.

My gun pain finally left me around 3 pm with no reasonable explanation of why it ever occured. No fever. Nothing expulsed. It just left. So, tomorrow I run. I think my IT issues are much better. I'll know tomorrow.

I've been reading a book today that's very good; it's called, "Passing for Thin" by Francis Kuffel. Here's one of my favorite parts, where she describes joining a gym:

The world was divided into members and nonmembers,
and members had special dispensation. Active but
individual, each had her own agenda at the gym.
Girlhood is picking and choosing, and I wanted to be
one of those girls.


If you're of the mind to do so, I recommend this book. SHe really gets into the meat of explaining her thoughts and feelings while obese, losing weight, and afterwards.
6 days to the Grasslands Marathon. It will be my 4th marathon in 4 months.
If you'd have told me 3 years ago that I'd be doing this, I'd have laughed like hell. And had another slice of cake. And a margarita.

  4. Glad you are feeling better. We missed you! But I will say it was a bit miserable in when we went into the headwind (just to make you feel better).
    Happy Birthday!

  5. At your mention I ordered Passing for Thin. WOW what an eye opener. I will never pass as thin...I always have about 10-15 pounds to lose. Right now I am up again and trying to decide how best to drop it. I am thinking of going back to WeWa.
    I know people cringe when I say I am a 4 time marathoner and I am techincally overweight. I can kick ass on a ldr and on my bike...I just have fat that needs to go! Thanks for the recommednation...great choice!

2016

Even though I was in awful shape in 2016 I was still stubborn and foohardy...so I spent a year running down whatever fitness base I had left...
