Looking Forward to 2014

I don't know how every year goes by so fast, year after year. 2014 and I still really have no clue as to how to get from point A to B. I look forward to doing much of that again this year. This is who I have become, a person of lost identity with no real direction. Wow what a way to start the New Year! No I will not...I don't think I will...no I don't think so.




I will take it one day at a time and do the best I know how. I will always ask God guidance, he will know what is right for me. I shall only hope that I do right by him.



I have learned what it is like to go through life with no real directions, just to live and let live. I am sure you are thinking this is a whole lot of nothing; yes you are correct because I really have nothing more creative to say. I will try to post more this year. I want to wish all a happy and healthy New Year. Below are the races I ran in 2013 and am sure there are a few missing but I’m ok with it. Hoping 2014 will bring some PR’s

I am sitting here thinking about so much, still not sure about my training.  I am not getting out early enough to get the miles in like I should.  I know I need to take control but haven't got a clue. 

Saturday, July 20, 2013

This is the 3rd time I am trying to write the same post now.  I wasn't able to post any thing the last two weeks kept getting an error message but could not find help with the issue.  I am now going to make this really quick. Today I did the Westport 4.1 miler, It felt like chicken soup out there. My only goal was to finish. I was very sensible and took it very easy.  I now bring my water bottle with me on every run and in every race it just makes sense. I manage to finish just under 40 minutes which was fine with me on a day like today I was happy to finish. I went into the water after the race and that made it so worth it. Well there you have it not much I know but I have a feeling I will be coming back here more often than not.

No time for excuses

I did another hot and humid race this morning.  After I finish, I headed for the water, there were people already in the water which made it more tempting than ever. I can't believe it but for the first time in as many times as I've been here, I took a dip. I took my shoe and sock off and went in for about 5 minutes. Wow what a wonderful way to cool my body down. I believe it was just as hot and humid last year but I added 2 minutes to my time this year.  I could give a lot of excuses but I am choosing not at this time.  Monday I will start back on my training schedule for NYC.   I believe I will have to do what is best for me.  I have been toying with the idea of doing most of my training runs on the treadmill.  I am going to start and see how it goes.

Happy Fourth of July

Happy Forth Every one!. My two week rest is almost over and I am feeling much better. I did the 4 on the 4th in New Canaan, CT this morning. What can I say it was hot and humid, I was so hoping the sun did not show its face but it did. I took allot of walk breaks more than I've ever remember taking of the 12 years of running this course but it was not my worst time on the course :0) so I am happy about that.  I just can't seem to handle the humidity as well as I use to anymore.  Hoping every one is having a wonderful day!
