Future of the Blog?

In: Uncategorized

As you can see, I haven’t blogged in pretty much forever. Life takes over and you find yourself living and doing more than sitting and writing about it. Plus, with Facebook, FourSquare, and other social media outlets, I find that my family knows what I’m up to from the odd status or photo album there […]

Christmas 2012

In: Uncategorized

Can’t believe I haven’t blogged in nearly six months, whoa! The long and short of it, I’ve been into training heavily (mostly running) and have run several races and gotten more PR’s (personal records) in the last six months than I have since I started running in 2011. I now run about five days a […]

Summer Update 2012

In: Uncategorized

Haven’t posted much, the usual “life” gets in the way of blogging sometimes. Chuck had ACL reconstruction knee surgery in the beginning of June, but he’s doing well now and in physical therapy once a week. I know he’s dying to get back to running and cycling, but so far he’s limited to swimming and […]

I Work Out!

In: Uncategorized

Last Wednesday was a milestone marking the end of my (very expensive even with copay) Physical Therapy sessions for my ankle. Last Thursday was my final doctor’s appointment where I was cleared to go back to all activities – yay! Only caveat is that if I’m doing quick lateral change sports (e.g. racquetball, hiking, trail […]

Ankle Update

In: Uncategorized

Wow, I can’t believe I went a whole month without posting, bad girl! Time to post an update on the ankle. It’s been a long, busy January, but I got out of the boot on January 12th and into an ankle brace and regular shoes. I’m now into my 4th week of physical therapy for […]

2011 Year in Review

In: Uncategorized

This year was WONDERFUL, and chock full of learning experiences. Here’s a little rundown of what I learned this year. 1) Beware of sleek CEO’s that might promise you the moon and stars. If it sounds too good to be true, it is. 2) Jobwise, take some time to find out what you REALLY enjoy […]

Making Progress, Slowly

In: Uncategorized

Well, I only got to wear my candy cane cast for one week, and then they put me in the evil Stormtrooper Moon Boot. I also had a wonderful knee scooter we rented for two weeks which helped immensely. After a week on crutches, my palms were bruised and my underarms were pretty unhappy with […]

Candy Canes and Everything Sweet

In: Uncategorized

My ankle stabilization surgery was on December 5th, and it went quite well. They were able to tighten the ligaments that I damaged from figure skating years ago, and were able to suture up the almost 1″ tear that I had on my peroneal brevis tendon. They even cleaned out a lot of the scar […]

Down for the Count

In: Uncategorized

Finally had my diagnosis today, after x-rays and MRI’s. I guess my days of competitive figure skating have caught up with me. It looks like my ligaments in the ankle are no more. So the tendons took on the extra work, and by getting hot and stressed ended up getting a split in them. So […]

Goodbye, Steve Jobs

In: Uncategorized

While I was at the Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta this past week, I returned to the hotel one night to catch up on news with my iPad – the first article was regarding the death of Steve Jobs. I immediately tuned the TV to CNN.  It wasn’t a surprise, as an Apple fan I knew he […]
