It's never too late to be what you might have been. --George Eliot

Athena is the Goddess of wisdom and war. In 2005, I declared war on my own bad tendencies: sloth, being fat, compacency, and being too old for adventure. This is the story of how I went from being someone who never stood when she could sit, to being an ultrarunner, marathoner, and triathlete. Along the way I've cried, laughed, fallen, gotten up, lost, won, hallucinated, been dehydrated, DNF'ed, and been DFL.
I also swear. Alot.

School days, school days. (Haiku)

Yellow buses roll

children head glumly to school

moms and dads celebrate.


  1. Are you missing teaching???

  2. I bet you are celebrating too...right?

  3. To answer both of your questions, I am celebrating the fact that 1) the LAST CHILD is in his LAST YEAR OF SCHOOL and 2) I'm NOT THERE.

  4. LOL! I can't wait to get there myself.

  5. Hey now...some of my students have already emailed me and told me they are excited to go back. Not all kids head glumly back to school. I will admit to a bit of kicking and screaming myself, but it isn't the kids or the teaching. I just like not having to wear a watch and still getting paid. Do you suppose I could arrange that on a perm basis?

    No...didn't think so.
