    Race number 8, for those who are counting...
    It was one of my favorite races last year, and one that I had done my best time on. So for this year, expectations were high and as usual, the Air Force came through!
    While there were a few bumps along the way, including a .25 mile mix up in going the wrong direction, I still ended the race with a PR.  My goal was 2:10 or under and I signed...

    Chelsea is off on another adventure and how could she resist...
    She has the opportunity to see California, while getting paid to do what she loves! It was tough to let her go, but already having some trips to California to visit in the works, I'm taking it one trip at a time.
    So many people wanted to catch up with Chelsea before she left, so we decided to put together a going away party for friends...

    In an attempt to document my summer, I thought I would do a random summer recap, to capture those events that took place during the summer of 2012...
    It has been another year of travel and entertainment, and its even more special when that travel is in your own city, and the entertainment is a concert. We knew the moment we heard they were coming to Cleveland that we wanted to see Train, and counted...

    Saturday's race in Indianapolis completed my 7th race for 12 in 2012 and it was a great race, one I would definitely do again!
    While Isaac was threatening to rain on our "running parade" I had finally decided that I had no control over the weather and would just deal with whatever happened in the morning. 
    Earlier in the day, when we arrived in the city we were able to check out the local...

    The last two weekends I signed up to run in a couple of 5K's. For a while I didn't think they were worth my time, with the time involved to drive to the location and run for 30 minutes or less it seemed unproductive. However, recently I've been educating myself on ways to improve my running and have found that those 5K's are actually a good way to measure your improvement. 
     
    So comparing...

    Spending time with my mother and learning more about Dementia along the way. Sometimes its all about changing your expectations of the person so that you can accept them at the stage they are when dealing with this disease. It is something I continue to struggle with. I want the mother that I had, and need to continually remind myself that she is no longer... So instead I'm trying to learn to enjoy...

    The other day we had the opportunity to meet up with my cousins and aunt for a lunch get together and to go through some of my grandma's and aunts scrapbook supplies and chocolate molds. I feel so blessed to have these cousins that are great friends too!
    My cousin Steph is the youngest and due with her first baby in November. She is closer to Chelsea's age, which just connects our family even more!...

    I grew up with a mom that feared most things... obviously the loss of two children, her husband and grandson didn't help the situation, nor did the abuse she suffered as a child. But I was finding that fear creeping into my own life and that of my kids. So over the last couple of years I started saying yes to things that I feared. All the yes's have given me the opportunity to explore the world with...

    Usually running has occupied the majority of my workout routine, just because I enjoy it that much! But after being injured, I found I had to find other ways to work out and not rely on running as my only form of cardio.
    Spinning is another form of cardio I enjoy, but spinning while I wasn't allowed to run just wasn't enough for me. I was bored and wanted to run...
    I decided to set some new goals...

    And so, being at the half way point of the 12 marathons for 2012 goal, you would think they would be getting easier, with an improved PR. But I guess I'm learning its about more than improving my PR and completing the races. It is about testing myself through some of the toughest elements and learning along the way.
    This past weekend I ran in a small half marathon in Columbia Station. Chosing it because...
