Advice from a former Cardio Queen:

tanadoeslife:

If you really really want to change the way your body looks, then you have to HAVE to lift weights.  Cardio will only get you so far. 

You will gain muscle, but, NO!, weights will NOT make you bulky.

It took me a very long time to figure that out, but I’m so glad I finally did.

Yes! So much yes!!

In New York

Nearly 50,000 people are preparing for a day they will remember forever.

Best of luck to all of you running the NYC Marathon 2011!! I will be cheering you on from Arkansas.

Thank you, thank you, thank you.

Cardinals?

Wow.

Just wow. You are forgiven.

Dear StL Cardinals,

I really need you to win tonight.

If you do, I might could forgive the fact that I drove 6 hours only to learn the game was postponed and then had to turn around and drive home the next day, missing the game I had intended to see.

I know I used to live in TX, but still. I’ve been a lifelong StL fan. Tried and true even during my Tejas days.

You guys can do this. I have faith. Remember that 16-7 game on Saturday? Yeah, let’s do that again.

Love always,
April

P.S. Remember in 2004 when you got swept in the series in 4 and I had tickets to game 5? And in 2006 when I was in the stadium and they cancelled the game due to rain and I had to fly back to TX, and then you made up that game 2 days later and won the series but I was at home? I’d forgive those too if you could just get it together tonight.

@Moxy. I think these would have prevented your calf cramps in Chicago. Capes on the calves…

 Reblogged because they’re awesome.

I got home at 2am, but it was worth it.

Blown away…

I have a family member competing in a 100 mile race this weekend and he’s currently in 2nd place about halfway through.
