In it to Finish It

This morning was my first 5K in five years (running).  Last night, I didn’t sleep well, I was crampy and when I did sleep I had a dream that not only did I come in dead last, but I got lost on the race route because it wasn’t marked.  When I woke up this morning, true to the weather prediction, the beautiful 77 temperatures of yesterday had turned into 42 degrees, overcast, windy and raining.  (more…)

Downward Dog

I didn’t run this past weekend.  I had every intention of going Friday night and then got home late and cleaned instead.  Saturday morning, I was scheduled to begin a yoga class (I’ve never done it before) with a friend of mine.  We got a great Groupon deal and I thought there was no better time to try it. 

I want to tell you that I loved it, but I’m not there yet.  It was not a beginner class, but listed as “mixed,” so we headed over.  I mean, I always envision yoga as challenging, but relaxing also, right?!  Not so much.  (more…)

A New York Minute

I was having the kind of week where all was right with the world – I felt good physically, I felt good mentally, I was happy.  Friday started out exceptionally well, I was in a great mood (convinced I was going to be one of mega millions winners), and it was Friday.  By mid morning, I received a phone call that turned my world upside down.

The rest of Friday was spent in a sort of holding pattern.  I was emotional and at work and trying to appear normal.  One of my attorneys asked if I was okay; I replied I was fine.  An untruth of huge proportions.  (more…)

    Failure is merely a perception; with each effort, we get the ability to start over again.
