I predict that this is going to be a fun week to read Toot Your Horn. I think that many of us did the Zombie Dash and have a lot to brag about. Maybe you didn’t do the 5k, but you did something else that is toot worthy. Whatever you did, this is your chance to get some recognition for it. I’m … [Read more…]

We’re starting a new segment here at Shrinking Jeans called Runners Corner.  Now, I know not everyone is a runner around these parts but I do know there is a large group of us that are.  And don’t give me that baloney about *I run/walk*, sometimes *I walk more than I run*, or *I only … [Read more…]

Why do I find it so easy to toot everyone else’s horn and so difficult to toot my own horn? I’ve been thinking about this post all day long, trying to get myself *tooting* along (snicker snicker). Regardless, it’s time for each and every one of us to share the positive from the past week, to grab … [Read more…]

Some are related to health and fitness, some are not. Shall we begin? I need to register for the 3M Half Marathon on January 13th and also, I need to make some time to buy new running shoes too. My feet hurt.  And while I am thinking about running, am I ready to commit or not to a Austin FULL … [Read more…]

If you run, Zumba, crossfit or kickbox, if you do pretty much any kind of exercise, your feet take a beating. Sometimes they need some TLC! If you’re lucky enough to get a pedicure regularly or have a significant other who loves to give foot massages, well, this post isn’t for you. So why don’t you … [Read more…]

I was with a friend at a cook out over Labor Day weekend when we got to talking about an upcoming 10k and 5k  in our area.  Like me, she is relatively new to the whole running thing. When I looked at the registration form online, I grew a bit intimidated.  It had too many details about the pace in … [Read more…]

By  Monday morning, our coach emails us our “homework” for the week. The homework varies, depending on whether you are in the 5k, 10k, or half marathon … [Read more…]

  This is a tale of two people. One has this on her mind: She thinks often of her quest for fitness. She has learned the importance and value of exercise for both her health and her sanity. She fits workouts into a busy schedule. She moves. She breathes. She feels good about her … [Read more…]
