Welcome to my page! I'm a 27-year old on a mission. A couple of years ago my husband started doing triathlons. Ever since he started, he's been doing really well. Last year, he encouraged me to do my first one. It was awesome! I didn't place in my age group or anything, but I had a lot of fun. This year, I'd like to be a little better and I'd like to look like I'm a triathlete. By that I mean, fit, tone, healthy.

My challenge is that God blessed me with meaty legs and arms. Don't have much to lose, but can't seem to get rid of it. That's where Sparkpeople will hopefully help.

I live in the metro Detroit area, so if anyone is looking for a running/biking partner let me know.

Here I am at the Run Fit Trial Run. It was a challenging 5 mile run up and down the hills of the Padawdme Trial. It was a good time!

The next one is from my first triathlon at Stoney Creek.

Finally, the last picture is my husband. The one that's motivated to me to try racing.

My Goals:
I would just like to lose 10-15 pounds, especially if it could be from my thighs. I plan to do 2 triathons this year (I've done 1 before), along with a 15K and Full Marathon by this fall.

My Program:
Last year I started running more and getting into triathlons & I did a half marathon. I have maintained my fitness and need to increase it a bit in order to run a full marathon in the fall. I currently work out 3-5 days a week. I'd like to consistantly work out 5 days a week to increase my endurance.

Personal Information:
My name is Marcie, I am 27 years old and live in Royal Oak, MI

Other Information:
Plan for this year:
Run 4 mile Corktown Race, Detroit, MI
Run 5 Mile Race in Pickney, MI
First Triathlon in Ann Arbor, MI (in June)
Second in Grand Haven,MI (in July)
15K in Saugatuck,MI (great race, done it before. In Sept.)
Full Marathon in Detroit, MI (did the half last year. In October)

    I was just starting to do a boot camp to get prepaired to train for my first triathlon and I fell and sprained the knee I had surgery on last year. I am so bumbed. When I am cleared to begin again where should I start? Oh by the way I updated my pictures so you can see what I have to lose.

    Marcie - I live in Michigan too (Livonia, to be exact). I have been interested in doing a triathalon, but I did not know if anything existed in Michigan (I've never heard about it). I am in awe of all that you have accomplished. Wow!!! If you do not mind, would you share training tips, websites, etc. for novice triathaloners? Thanks! Oh, and good luck in your future events!!!!
