So, wow. That happened! I went to (really beautiful) Manistee, MI this weekend to run my very first 50 mile ultra race. I went into it even more nervous than you'd expect! I was supposed to fly to Chicago to meet up with my buddy and then w... Read more

Well, I did it. I ran my first ultra. :D This past Saturday, the 14th, I tackled the Dances with Dirt race at Devil's Lake, WI. I was shaking scared the night before and sick to my stomach with nerves all day on Thursday. It wasn't so much ... Read more

I've been doing pretty well. I've set my SP stuff to maintain at 127 (I don't know if I weigh that or not, I'm still on scale boycott!) and I intend to eat mid/high in my new higher ranges. A lot of my mood issues can be undereating in addi... Read more
Why I hid my weight tracker: or disordered brain blues ...

So, I've been within a 5 lb. window of my basic weight goal for over a year now. I shoot for 126-127 and sometimes I'm a bit lower and sometimes a bit higher. It depends a lot. My measurements also waver a bit - sometimes my waist is 26˝ (y... Read more

Less than 24 hours to go to Marathon ... pep talk
Friday, October 22, 2010 10 comments
Less than 24 hours to go. This time tomorrow I'll be about 4 hours into the run, probably around mile 20 with the worst miles ahead of me. Perhaps hitting the wall. Maybe thinking I can't do this or wanting to quit. But definitely DEFINITELY n... Read more

Soooo... my first marathon is in three days (2 days, 22 hours, if we're being precise). I am TERRIFIED. I've been working very hard and I've dealt with not one but TWO injuries during the training process. About 7 weeks ago I was waylaid with ... Read more

Thanks for the feedback on my last blog, guys. Ironically, I did a weigh in the next day and had the scale register my lowest weight yet?!?? I do not understand my wacky body - it's as confusing as my wacky brain. I also don't get ... Read more

No, I didn't eat Dunkin's Donuts - so not vegan! But, I did have donuts ... they were small (much smaller than Dunkin's I think - maybe 2.5 - 3˝ circle?) chai tea donuts with chai vanilla icing and cinnamon cream. Vegan, o' course. I w... Read more
