I disagree. You came back to your blog, that's all that counts. So you kept that resolution. It's like weight loss: Never look back, just get right back on track after you fall off the wagon. There's only one way to go and you're doing it, no matter how long it takes. Awesome!!

I'm not really sure why half of my post is missing. Smh. Maybe I'll do another blog later. Thanks biking syl, you are always encouraging and I really appreciate that ????

I have a case of the grouchies myself. I think it's going around. :) Good for you to sticking to everything!

Great progress! And don't call it whiny.... you just had to get it out of your system. After you did it, you went back on track, that's what counts. That half marathon project sounds so cool - definitely keep us posted!!

I'm sorry that you're having a Monday-ey Tuesday. The fact that you got up, got other humans ready, got them to school, then got out there and ran? That is a great feat. Even if it doesn't feel like it. I'm a single mom of two, I have been single their whole lives. They both have lupus, so that effects their moods a great deal. There are days where NOTHING will get them to move, in fact it will shut them down even more, and they won't respond to anything. It takes a lot of inner strength being a Mom. You got them to school though. You went for that run when the other two chose not to. You kept going when the others left you behind. You're doing great. -- is a great site to help you with organization. It's been helping me get my life organized. You can find them on Facebook too. They'll post daily and tell you things like "Take ten minutes to clear off the nearest surface to you." or remind you nightly to un-eff your next morning by having things set up and ready to go. It helps you take steps at a time so that the tasks aren't too overwhelming. I hope your dog gets better soon too. It's hard seeing them sick. Take care, and I'm wishing you the best. :)

On the good side: Statistically, you should be done with bad stuff for the week. Maybe you can find comfort in that. :-) And pat yourself on the back for not letting the others mess up your training effort!

Thats awesome. I know how life can swallow up your identy...I am now 55 and realize how much time I am having for myself, and have to organize it ...I am worse than when I was so busy with other people that I didn't have time for least then, I knew what I wanted to do when I had a minute! Now I just have so much to do that I am confused problem...but true..

I love your title of this post...Drew me in like a bee to the hive. Can't wait to here how your marathon goes!

Epsom salts in a warm bath. Soak for about 15-20 min. I agree with the foam rolling. Or go get a massage!! :-)

Nothing like a HUGE commitment to keep the focus going...Just go, go, go!

Thanks Ted! My friend and I went to a running store and got fitted for good running shoes a couple of weeks ago. My feet feel great after this morning's run! I'm excited to challenge myself to try something new. I only have two goals-- to finish, and not be last! lol
