I have used every excuse one can think of, as to why I could not exercise or eat healthy.

I am done with excuses, they never got me anywhere, and left me feeling frustrated and unhappy with myself.

I deserve to feel good about myself. I deserve to be healthy, and I deserve to be fit. I am the only one who can make that possible, and I will work hard to attain it.

In February 2009, I ran my first marathon. This is something I would never, ever have imagined myself doing. I always thought running, and especially marathons, were for super athletic individuals, who had been running for a long time.

I trained hard for 7 months, and met a once perceived, unattainble goal.

I am hooked on running, and even more motivated to meet future goals.

I still have weight to lose, and new fitness goals to achieve, and with tons of hard work and determination, I know I will get there.

And, so can you!

My Goals:
1 have run 9 marathons.

My best time was 4:29:33, at the OC Marathon 2010.

In 2012, I hope to let my body recover from all the running I have done.

I want to concentrate more on shorter races and improving my time.

I hope to put more focus on yoga and strength training.

I also hope to climb Mt. Whitney and do a few backpacking trips.

I am currently training for a half-marathon, and hoping to beat my best time of 1:57.

Speed training (track)-2x/week

Yoga-at least once per week

    Hi Angie, I used to follow your playlist blog and miss it and hearing about your runs! You helped me get through my first couple of 5Ks when I began running. And now I'm training for my first half marathon. Just wanted to say hi and thanks again!

    Hey Angie, I read your blog post about running and I just wanted to let you know that you're totally an inspiration to me. I've been struggling with when to push myself and when to pull back and reading your post was a great reminder to listen to my body. Thanks!

    (::hugs:: i'm sorry you are feeling frustrated, too. i think my lack of sleep combined with stress levels is making me one whiny green girl lately!

    i looked at my past three sparkblogs and i'm all negative.

    i need to pull myself out of this funk!)
