Happy Father’s Day!  I know there aren’t too many guys who read my blog, but if you do, and you’re a Dad,  Happy Father’s Day to you! …..I’m sick y’all.  That’s why I’ve been MIA.  I tried to go run Week 2 when I got back home, but I was too sick and had to turn around after just a few minutes.  I struggled through the week feeling a little bad, but by Friday, I felt so terrible that I called off work.  Once I could get up out of bed, My Big Little Sister took me to Urgent Care.  I found out that I have a serious ear infection in both ears, and a sinus infection.  When the first doctor looked in my ear, she frowned and said “ugh” and when the 2nd doctor came in he said “wow” and jumped back.  You know doctors usually try to control their emotions, but it was obvious that I had a very nasty ear infection.  The doctor said that flying on the plane and swimming in the ocean, and being enclosed on a ship with sick people made things worse.  They gave me antibiotics and ear drops for the pain….   Yesterday, our church had a Health Fair.  We had a chiropractor, nurses, computer techs, a lawyer and more.  My Mom was on the committee, and she asked for “Running Into Shape” to be a part of it.  I was still not feeling well, but if I make a commitment, I try to stick to it.    I had a vendor table with business cards promoting my website and Couch to 5K Podcasts, before Pics of me 50 pounds heavier, and a copy of my ACE Group Fitness Instructor certification.  I also gave away a free 7 -Day meal plan.  It never ceases to amaze me that people take health advice and don’t laugh at fat girl talking about exercise and weight loss.  Everyone who came to the table said, oh I could never run.  AndI  told them all, look at me, if I can run, so can you!  What really amazed me was that 3 different people said they remembered seeing me on TV.  That was over a year ago, TV is such a powerful medium.  The fair turned out to be a huge success and the computer tech guy said that he would help make my website a little more fancy with flashing pics and stuff…..  Well, my Dad just brought me some fruit, and told me to rest.   So, I’m going to respond to a few emails and comments and try to rest up for work tomorrow.

  2. Thanks for the Father’s Day wishes! Sounds like you’ve got a good one helping you out. I just did my first session of week 3 using your podcast and I like it! Good mix and clear cues definitely help. Hope you’re feeling better soon and looking forward to the new website, though sometimes simpler is better. Keep up the great work!

    • Hey Kirk, I knew there guys somewhere reading my blog! Thanks for the advice, I’ve been to some websites, and didn’t even know where to start. I think I might figure out how to put my before/current pic at the top of the home page, no other changes really. Good Luck, and I hope to see you on my Wall of Fame!
