Running Plans - Gorgeous Blogger Award

Happy Thursday - February 25

OK - enough whining. I have been doing a lot of that lately - or at least it seems that way. I am busy - there is no getting over that fact . . . but lots of people are busy and they still prioritize their exercise. Me too. ;-)

I ran 3 miles on Tuesday morning. It felt great - but slow. I didn't run this morning because I had to drive to Milwaukee, for the second time this week for a meeting. Good news is I made it back in time to go to my Circuit Training class at 4:30. I needed that - especially after sitting in the car and meetings all day. Tomorrow morning - another running morning. Yea!!!! Tomorrow after work I am planning on trying out a new Yoga Studio. I am very excited. I love Yoga and currently only take a 1/2 hour class at work.

Plans for Spring/Summer running:

Shamrock-Shuffle - either 5 or 10K. Sunday, March 14th

Crazy Legs Classic - 8 K - April 24

MAYBE -??? maybe ???? Syttende Mai - 20 miles - May 16

East High Pi run - 3.1416 miles - May 23

Komen Race for the Cure - 5 K - June 5

Madison Mini-Marathon - 13 miles - August 21

I want to thank Anne at Asthma and the Gift of Running for tagging me to receive the Gorgeous Blogger Award. I must now tell you six things about myself that you do not know.

Here goes:

1. I love to have polish on my toe nails - but hate to have my finger nails polished. I can feel the weight of the polish on my fingers.

2. I use to drive and race Radio Control Sedans and Trucks (10th scale). It started with my son's participating and then they bought me a truck and sedan. I was generally the only women - I have won trophy's.

3. I was diagnosed with stage IIIb Breast Cancer in September 2004. So far so good.

4. My eyebrows are tattooed. As a result of chemotherapy - I lost all of my hair, including eyebrows. Brows never came back - I have a few hairs - but not many.

5. I started college as a music major and then changed to Accounting in my Junior year.

6. I am a CPA


  1. Congrats on the bloggy award! I'm doing Crazylegs and Madison Mini this year, too! I loved the Mini course last year and it's so darn convenient!!! :-)

  2. i found your blog on google.. Im really impressed with the topics you have..
    Ya, Exercise is very important in person's life in order to be physically fit and have a good health. One of this exercise which help us to be physically fit is the yoga. Exercise is one of the besty weapon also against illnesses and depression.

  3. It is so easy to say I will do my workout tomorrow. I am a queen of that. I have to keep reminding myself that I am doing it for my health and sanity.
    Sometimes that works.:)
    Good luck with your races.

  4. ohh amen I just can't have my fingernails polished, but the toes have to have it!

  5. I am not good with polish. In the summer I make an effort but it is usually to hide the black and blue toenails!!

    From Music to Math. What a change!

    So glad that you are healthy all these years later! Thank God for being with you.
