My New MOTTO: Run when you can, walk if you have to, crawl if you must; just never give up. ~Dean Karnazes

I started my journey in April of 2010 I worked hard and with the help of my friends and sparks page I have lost 50 lb. I am getting healthy and fit. It is the most wonderful feeling. It is truly a life changing experience.

My family and my inner strength is my inspiratiion and motivation. I am going to live a long and happy life, I am able to run with and chase my grandchildren - yes I have a grandson and a granddaughter. I am showing my own children a better me and a healthy way to live. Less then a year ago I wrote that I WANTED to do all these things and I am here today saying I AM doing these things. It can be done with hard work, determination, support and motivation. I started a journey that is taking me to new heights and I am loving it more and more each day.

One of my goals for 2010 was to complete a 5K. I DID IT. I not only did it but did it in 45.37 min. I have never been more proud of myself in my life. Crossing the finish line gives you this incredible feeling of wanting to do it again and again. I did a second 5K in February in less time. I have 3 scheduled in May. My goal is to run a 1/2 marathon and do the MUDD Run in 2012!

This summer(another I am) I am taking my kids to the beach and will not be embarrassed to be seen in a swimsuit. I live at the beach and have not been seen at the beach in a bating suit in 9 years. I always took them to my inlaws pool. Not this year. I am taking back my beach back!

Watch out 2011 here I come!

    Hey I haven't seen you on the tread lately and just wanted to check in to see how things are going. Has the new job slowed down at all or are you busy as ever?

    Just missing you and hoping all is ok
