Is There Anybody Out There?


I can't believe it's been over a year since I've posted here. 

I'm not going to try and summarize what's been happening around here, I'll just jump right in like I've been here all along.  That makes perfect sense, right?

Last weekend was a big weekend.  My daughter had her senior prom,

and she graduated from high school.

Since I live alone with 2 kids that are basically adults (the boy will turn 18 in October), you would think I would have all kinds of time to do whatever I want, right? 
Well, that's true.  I do have a lot more free time on my hands these days, but I'm not taking advantage of it.  I'm spending a lot of time lounging around the house and reading on the back deck instead.

I'm not going to whine and complain here about how out of shape I am.  I have the tools to change it. 

The plan is that over the next few months, I'll be posting my progress here.  So far, not so great.  This week is Week 1 of Marathon Training for Chicago.  Guess how many of my 3 scheduled training runs I've done so far?  Oye.

I'm signed up for CARA Training, so I have no excuse (short of laziness) to miss the 6 mile run on Saturday...  Hopefully I'll meet somebody who lives in my  neighborhood who can be my conscience for the weekday runs as well.  I'm keeping my fingers crossed for a local running partner.

Hey Tammy! I logged into my blog for the first time in two weeks and you were on top of the list!

There are a few of us still out here, but we all seem to post less and less often, myself included.

You'll be back on track in no time! You're just like that!
