I signed up on SP in June of 2007... I think. I had great plans for a summer of weight loss that never really happened. Towards the middle of October 2007 I came back and I've been addicted ever since!

Well, I completed a VERY drawn out version of Hal Higdon's Half Marathon Training. Here's what I did:

Mondays (Run)
Tuesdays (Opt. Crosstrain)
Wednesdays (Run/Strength)
Fridays (Run OR Crosstrain)
Sat. (Long Run)

    Just had to stop by and say "congratulations" on your half. I read your account on the 1/2 marathon in 2009 team page. It was the best play-by-play I have read to date! Thanks for sharing. You have truly accomplished something! And, WOW, what a time!

    Thank you for replying to my blog. I am with you that I don't have her self esteem. There is so much in her writing that is like me though. She has my sense of humor. I love motivation that makes me laugh. I see myself wanting to better than her. LOL
    You have done so well. The difference in the 2 pics are amazing.

    ARRGGGHHH (LOL in pirate speak) at that joke! I've got one for ya but I already deleted it so I had to ask my friend to email it back to me. If and when she does, I'll forward it! Yep, laffy taffy jokes are a mainstay with a 10 yo and a 4 yo and a hubbie in the house!!
