The Healthy Life

I know that mostly all I’ve blogged about has been running and gardening lately, and I apologize.  But, since they are my two current obsessions, I don’t have a lot of other things pressing in my mind fueling interesting blog posts.  So, you “get what you get and you don’t throw a fit”.  After all, […]

Couch to 5K update and a MLK Jr. Quote

So, the past few runs I’ve done on the treadmill, which is great, because I can do it on my own time schedule and I don’t have to leave my kids alone at the house.  A big plus.  Last week, my runs were in the “Week 3” of Couch to 5K and were getting harder… […]
