A clear conscience is usually the sign of a bad memory.-- Steven Wright My conscience is usually pretty clear, and it's clear that my memory isn't always great -- except when it is. Mostly I chose this quote because it made me laugh. I get what he meant, but it's my blog and I'm spinning … Continue reading A Clear Conscience: October 2021
Your vision will become clear only when you can look into your own heart. Who looks outside, dreams; who looks inside, awakes.-- Carl Jung It's funny how stuff from Carl Jung aligns with Yoga Philosophy, and yet, apparently, despite some Yoga practice, Jung absolutely felt Westerners shouldn't practice Yoga (there's a lot of interesting blog … Continue reading Look Inside to Awaken: September 2021
October had no races, virtual or otherwise. In fact, it was probably the least amount of running I did in 2020 with a 2 week running break, and now trying to squeeze in running around hopefully coaxing Lola back to health. October also saw tempers fraying, the election getting on everyone's nerves, and COVID once … Continue reading Hold On: October 2020
September was even busier than the last few months! 2 trips to mom, both with side trips. One day trip as a "family" -- I'd hoped for more, but it wasn't meant to be. Cat sitting for a friend. Planning & executing birthday shenanigans for Mr. Judy. A virtual 10k + virtual 5k walk. September's … Continue reading The People Have the Power: September 2020

They don't give you much notice. Running continued pretty strong, and since … Continue reading Reunited & It Feels So Good: October 2019
September was the month it all fell apart. In case you hadn't heard, we went to visit my parents on Labor Day, and my Dad ended up in the hospital that night. He spent almost a week in the hospital and is still in a rehabilitation center -- except then he ended up back in … Continue reading Missing you: September 2019
September was a good month for running with beautiful Fall weather -- right up until Summer decided to return just a few weeks before my Fall half marathon. One thing that wasn't good this training cycle? The speed work. For whatever reason, I was never able to hit my paces for speedwork. I can't lie; … Continue reading September 2017: Did I pass?
