Summer Training

After my run this morning in the hot Summer sun, I realized what I wanted to think about today. Oh my, it was so warm outside in the Park and I cannot complain because I was saying how cold it was. Many people have already covered the topic of hot weather running but as always…

Hot weather dessert

I need to quench my sweet tooth in the upcoming heat wave. So far I have succumbed to a muffin one morning and some 90 calorie Brownies. I need something more than that to make me feel happy but I do not want to diet my entire life for one piece of cake. So I’m…

Cool Running – Weather in the Spring

I’m good with between 63F to 75F degrees outside for comfort during my run.  I am not a fan of the cold weather. I love spring running normally, but this year it has been a stressful weather year in the Northeast. If you don’t like the weather, wait a minute, it may get better or not. How can you dress for…

Corral A

This morning I was reminiscing about my Run Disney Races. When I started running Run Disney races I got the un-royal treatment and was placed in Corral E, the last start of the race. This was kind of unusual for me since I was used to getting placed in the middle or near the front…

Memorial Day

On Memorial day, I allow myself to have one treat that I normally would not eat. My next time will be in July (not the 4th).  The American baking competition is on this weekend. Nathan’s (Hot Dogs) has re-opened after Hurricane Sandy and I will eat 1 regular meal. I choose cake for my dessert….

Contemplating Health

As I sat on my bed this morning contemplating my day, I heard a News story about vegetarianism.  They said that by eating Vegetarian to lose weight, some people were in fact gaining weight, due to eating too many carbohydrates. The reasoning behind the weight gain was that people were eating Pasta and other high…

Not Obsessed

Recently, I was asked to add more to my “Weight loss” post, so I wrote, “Weight loss Rebooted” to add to my original post. I thought long and hard and realized that I may have been too hasty to post my weight loss experience.  This brings me to a place where I can add to the…

Hard to Move Me

After a particularly hard training session, I felt particularly lazy. I just felt lethargic. I blamed it on allergy season. Then I realized that it was just me feeling demotivated. It seems hard to get up the daily motivational level to fight stasis. Today I feel like owning my inner and outer Clydesdale. I am…

Nay Sayers

On a rainy day in New York, as I sat eating a 100 calorie pastry and some fruit, I just read an article whose sole purpose irritated me. The premise of this article was that once overweight always overweight. Ok. Then there was a study to back it up. Seriously? Here is a quote from…

Running Comfortably

When I was younger, I was very young…and much faster as a runner. It was effortless and my body never disappointed me when I went out to run.  I used to go out for a run and just nail the speed after a brief warm-up. Though then I used to hate warming-up, I feel differently…
