I am NOT a runner.
I am NOT a runner. Wait let me make sure you understand. I AM NOT A RUNNER. I don’t believe I am a good runner. I was never good at running growing up. Never pushed the limits, took that leap of faith that i could ever be. I was too FAT to be a good runner. That was my excuse.
For 28 and almost a half that was my excuse. Just if I was skinnier I could be a good runner, a great runner, not such a scaredy cat. Do all this cool things, take the bull by the horns. EXCUSES EXCUSES. Will me being skinny really make me a great runner? Yes it would make it easier to run fast, take stress of my body being smaller, help my breathing, make it so I can run longer before getting tired. But just because I am over weight doesn’t mean I can’t be a runner. The only one that is stopping me from being good or great runner is ME. And the only one that can change that is me. Because in the end we only regret the chances we didn’t take.
Adventure is out there!!! I am not sitting around and letting it pass me by anymore.
I AM a runner!
I posted yesterday that I was have problem with 404 not found pages. I am happy to announce that its been solved. To be honest I don’t know how it got solved (will need to learn that hopefully at some point) but I braved up and reached out for help. I am truly grateful that I have people in my life that I can reach out for help and support. Also that they were able to help and fix it so quickly. Thank you for saving my sanity. If anyone ever need help with there website and or computer/ laptop I have an awesome Tech guy I can refer.
A Little Honesty from KathrynEkman.com
I have had this website now almost five years. Yes that right five years. I believe I have like 11ish post which mean I have averaged about two post a year if you divided it up. But seeing as my last post was almost two or three years ago I would have to admit I am kind of slacking. I had big plans of being this super saving deal blogger but there was this thing called life that has gone in the way. Not saying that is a good excuse for not doing too much with KathrynEkman.com. If I was truly honest with why this site hasn’t been has successful as I dreamt it would be, it would be because of my fear of failing. But really fearing to fail is the same as fearing to succeed. My blog KathrynEkman.com is so much more than coupons and savings, it will be a way for me to express my life, journey, ideas, experiences and of course I will share any cool deals and saving tips I find thru out this journey called life.

TIPS ON PUMPING GAS
Only buy or fill up your car or truck in the early morning when the ground temperature is still cold. Remember that all service stations have their storage tanks buried below ground. The colder the ground the more dense the gasoline, when it gets warmer gasoline expands, so buying in the afternoon or in the evening….your gallon is not exactly a gallon.
A 1-degree rise in temperature is a big deal for this business. But the service stations do not have temperature compensation at the pumps.
When you’re filling up do not squeeze the trigger of the nozzle to a fast mode If you look you will see that the trigger has three (3) stages: low, middle, and high.
You should be pumping on low mode, thereby minimizing the vapors that are created while you are pumping. All hoses at the pump have a vapor return. If you are pumping on the fast rate, some of the liquid that goes to your tank becomes vapor. Those vapors are being sucked up and back into the underground storage tank so you’re getting less worth for your money.
One of the most important tips is to fill up when your gas tank is HALF FULL. The reason for this is the more gas you have in your tank the less air occupying its empty space. Gasoline evaporates faster than you can imagine. Gasoline storage tanks have an internal floating roof. This roof serves as zero clearance between the gas and the atmosphere, so it minimizes the evaporation.
Another reminder, if there is a gasoline truck pumping into the storage tanks when you stop to buy gas, DO NOT fill up; most likely the gasoline is being stirred up as the gas is being delivered, and you might pick up some of the dirt that normally settles on the bottom.
