Although it rained a bit, it was a nice, warm day today, so I opened windows. There weren't a lot of people at the gym today, so I didn't feel bad for hogging a treadmill for an hour. I've got everything chopped and ready for the soup ... Read more

Tom and I jogged around the building. We did two circuits the first time and one the second go a round. While I did not experience a runner's high, I was surprised how far I got before I couldn't jog any longer. It's been a very pleasant ... Read more

Since I'm reluctant to admit this, I suppose that it's important that I do. After many starts, stops, detours, mountain peaks, and sinkholes, I finally believe I can make it to the end of this journey to turn around my life. The hopelessness t... Read more
