My Target Heart Rate

I'm not sure if I ever blogged it, but I had said I was going to - one of my blog readers, Laura from NJ had emailed me a long time ago and talked about how the number 143 used to be the way to say "I love you" when texting/paging someone (remember pagers?) :o)  She said she felt like Rachel's 43 minutes on earth was her way of saying "love you" to me. (through God, obviously)  I think of that every time I catch 1:43 on the clock or somewhere else. 

Last night I was at the gym... day 2 of week 2 on my couch to 5K running plan.... I placed my hands on the heart rate monitor to check where I was at.  I followed the white line that appeared over until I got to my age and saw that it was right over the green line, meaning I was at my target heart rate. 

My eyes shifted to look at the number.  A big 143 right next to the red blinking heart. 

Didn't I say she would be my inspiration to keep running?  She's with me every step of the way. 


  1. Awesome! I love things like that!

  2. <3 Since more than a week now the number 43 is following me. Always when I check up the time it's something with :43 and I have to think of Rachel :-)
    Much love , anja

  3. Rachel is always ever so close.
    You rock babe. And so does your Princess!

  4. That's beautiful, Stacy. And, great job on your journey to better physical health! I am inspired!
