Day 1 of challenge…

And I have come down with a wicked bug… dizzy all day, sick feeling in my stomach, tired.

I had a good day tracing my food on the Iphone app called LoseIt. Thanks Kovas, it is a very cool app! I ran 5k tonight to the tune of 610 calories burned (felt fine on the run), so that has left me with a remaining amount that I can eat, of 792 calories.

Considering I just puked, I am pretty sure those calories will be left uneaten. SCORE! automatic weight losses!

2 really good things today that came from all my pics from Saturday. The PhotoBomber contacted me in comments (Hi Kate) and so we now have another run buddy at races! And then this evening I received a neat email. It was in regard to the Halloween Howl race report I did on Saturday.

Hi my Fiancé ran in the Howl and there are a couple of pics of her which pretty cool. I want to surprise her and have then done nicely in a frame (she is in the 4th & 5th picture from the top).

Would you mind if I took a copy of the pictures to use for this gift?



Yes. Yes you may use them (I sent him the Hi-res images). I am happy you found these, and I can just imagine your surprise when you scrolled through the blog and there was your lady friend! These 2 photos have made many people happy! Next time you see a big barefoot goofball shooting photos, don’t forget to smile (or whatever) as you never know who may be watching this blog!

He just searched this, and found my lil blogger dealy:


Have I ever told you I love blogging? I have met amazing people in the internets as well as in real life, due to my race reports and of course my Barefootery.

But I am sick, so I am done. goodnight…

But not before I thank everyone for you kind and encouraging comments in the last post! It is very uplifting to have a support team as inspiring and experienced as you all!
