I’m back …maybe

I hear crickets chirping on my blog – and I feel guilty. It’s been a hard year. 2015 started out ok, then it was like a sucker punch to the gut. It’s like I just could not keep up. I could not win. I kept going the only way I knew how. I decided to focus on teaching my classes […]

Updates, Videos and Support my friend Laura

I know it’s been a while. I’ve been dealing with a few things. The medical terms are sequelae and arthralgia.

Sunday Running Report: Slow and steady wins the race

This week my plan was to achieve last week’s goal of four workouts.   I was doing really well until Wednesday when I had to slow down to let my icky stomach heal.  That was ok because I did not have yoga at Ti Kaye which meant I could run on Thursday. My body had other plans though.  I lay […]
