Meet my newest live-in houseguest

Not even two weeks in, and I’m already in love with P90x. Sounds cheesy, but I feel like Tony Horton shows up once a day to kick my ass for an hour or two, and he’s the cheapest personal trainer I’ve ever had. I was warned that he was annoying, and he is slightly, but…

2011 marathon – help me decide which one

So, I’d like to run a marathon this year. And I guess that means I should decide which one! Stipulations: Don’t want to do one anytime in the next few months.

2011: less running, more writing

The obligatory 2010 post: I’m not going to go into a huge play-by-play of the year. You have the archives for that! But I will say I started out the year at Wade’s house, drinking his home brewed beer (yum!) and hanging out in the hot tub. I imagine I may finish the year the same way ……
