pretty cool

Today was my first run with my Nike plus attachment for the iPod. Being a visual person, I always enjoy seeing my efforts laid out in front of me . This is what this morning looked like

I'm so glad I decided to start running outside. I love being alone with my thoughts as I watch the sun come up over the golf course. Not sure how cold it will have to get before I'm back in the gym but we'll see! I'll enjoy it while it lasts.

A few people have been commenting about being brave and going to yoga and I've been thinking a lot about that lately. Sure it was really hard the first time and yes, I'm surely the fattest person there. I can see myself in the mirror. I know I look ridiculous at times but as I see it, I would look a lot more ridiculous on my couch watching Oprah surrounded by candy wrappers. All I can say is, if you have a desire to do something, do it. Same with the pool. If you think people are looking at you they aren't. I've learned that fit people have respect for people who are trying. No matter what you look like in a bathing suit, a tank top or a crow pose.

Hope everyone is having a great week. I so appreciate those who are hanging in there and still reading this through all my ups and downs!!!


  1. Your attitude is wonderful and that is the biggest boost toward success. Keep up the great work! You are an inspiration.

  2. What a great run - looks like you have a really even pace, which is awesome! I always loved seeing the squiggly line when I wore my Nike + - it's so motivating to know that YOU did that!

  3. Oh I love that Nike readout cool! Dwayne asked me what I want for Christmas (he was expecting me to say jewelry, since that's what he always gets me)...but I told him I'd really LOVE to have 2 things...a digital food scale and a Polar heart rate should have seen the confusion on his face, lmao....

  4. Let Jason also inspire you not to get shin splints & to take the time to heal if you need it!! Keep a goin'!!
