Quickie Update

Hi Everybody!

I'm back from my trip to Las Vegas for the Rock & Roll 1/2 Marathon!  I met my goals of finishing before the cutoff time of 4 hours (made it in 3:28:29), having fun, and staying alive and uninjured.  I don't have time right now to do justice to the thrilling tale, but you can check out the wonderful recap (with slideshow!) written by Foodie McBody (click here).

I'm also over 3/4 of the way through blogger Charlotte Hilton-Andersen's book, The Great Fitness Experiment: One Year of Trying Everything.  Her experience is nearly the polar opposite of mine, with regard to food and fitness and body image, but I've learned so much from her blog, and now the book.  She's a great writer and this is a fantastic read; it made plane travel and waiting around airports a pleasure.  (And no, I'm not just saying that because I'm a parent and when you have children, any time you get to sit by yourself and read something without cutting into sleep time is a bonus!)  I can hardly wait to review it!  (But sorry, the race report is going to come first.)

More to come...

Oh so glad to hear from you--can hardly wait for the report. In the meantime I'll check Foody's report, and I will check out that book too.

Congrats on your performance!! Woot woot!!

I want to read Charlotte's book too, but I'm hoping it will come out on Kindle soon. Right now it's only in book form and I would rather read it on Kindle. :D

Looking forward to hearing all about the race.

Thanks for sharing the "book review." It sounds great, and I want to read it. Also, sounds like you did well at the race. Good for you! I am in awe of those who have the courage to do it--including you! Also, I appreciated the comments you left when you stopped by my blog. I need tips and ideas to make this holiday season easier and healthier.
