Interested in hearing what goes on in the mind of a life coach/aerobics instructor? While it can be a bizarre place, it's always entertaining...mostly at my expense. Witness my struggle/dance/frustration/celebration with change as I stray out of my comfort zone and encounter other brave and interesting souls along the way.

The Odyssey--Carbo Loading

Our pre-race dinner was at an Italian restaurant at the Ala Moana Shopping Center called Assagio's. There we stuffed our faces with salad, bread, and a mountain of spaghetti and meatballs. I ate so much that those sitting across the table from me saidI looked miserable. However, in the end, that load of pasta would come in handy!

The Odysseyy--26.2

Yes, contrary to my long silence, my brother, Paul, and I successfully completed our odyssey of running the Honolulu Marathon last Sunday and we actually live to tell the tale. I am currently sitting on the floor of my hotel room, accessing the internet via the TV and listening to the sound of the ocean waves. Rough life, eh? Let me tell you, after 4 humbling days of cringing wth every step either uphill or down, this is a fitting reward.

My final time? 4 hours, 11 minutes, 44 seconds.
