There comes a time when you really cannot deny anymore that you need help. Any help.

Even when it may come in the form of a crazy-fast dude tapering for his first ironman.

I haven't been running. For a while. It shows. I have a nice layer of fluff that I plan on evicting once I get back to school.

So when my buddy Joe asked me if I wanted to run with him, I thought (rightly) that it would probably be pretty ugly.


You could call it a run if you wanted to, but honestly (and I told him this), I felt like a human being walked by a dog. He kindly gave me a beautiful tour of Brookline, and we passed by JFK's birthplace... I wondered how appropriate it would be for me to perish on the spot...

So, I saw him again tonight (somehow managed to drag my quads to a wonderful Korean Dinner). Turns out "we" ran 9:41 pace for 3.1 miles. Hah. *there were a couple of breaks, I do have to say....*

So, I'll quit my griping. It's within my power to change. I just needed his help.

Right now I'd just like to have a big ole country ham. :-)

Moving day is here

Hey everyone!

So, I'm back from the cruise and I'm the big 3-0 today!!!! Wooo Hoooo! And, I'm moving tomorrow! Craziness, let me tell you....

But I'm super excited... I can't begin to explain it, but I just hope that this job is all that it promises to be. I know it's going to be a busy first year, but I'm no stranger to hard work. And, I'm soooo excited to be finally getting on a schedule so I can plan my workouts better. It's time to get that part of me back. Time to lose those 10 lbs. For good.

So, it'll be a while (but it looks like lately I've been on here once a month :)... But I hope that you are all doing well! LCAR folks, I will try to post more, I promise!

Over and OUT!
