Valentine’s Day 50K Relay Race

In: Uncategorized

What’d I do for Valentine’s Day? My husband signed me up for a 50K relay race! He was sweet enough to name our team “I <3 MY WIFE” — extra brownie points for that. We got up at 4:30am this past Valentine’s Day morning to race. The race was the Pembertion Trail 50K at the McDowell […]

Guess Who’s Back?

In: Uncategorized

Life has been amazing lately. And busy. Last year, Chuck completed five ultramarathons ranging in distances from 50K to 50 miles. He’s my hero and I look up to his accomplishments. I had ankle surgery in May 2014 (right foot this time) to remove a bone fragment and hopefully get rid of the shooting pain I […]

Summer 2014 Update

In: Uncategorized

Work: I’m still at US Airways, although I think we’re supposed to call it American Airlines these days. Hrm. Life: Recovering from ankle surgery on my right ankle this time. I had a bone fragment that was bugging me. I think it came from back in the figure skating days in high school — it’s my […]

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 […]
