I'll be participating in the 8 week 2012 Spring 5% challenge that starts March 17. My goal will be to get my weight under 130. This should be pretty close to 5% and a nice even number.

Upcoming Races
4/15/2012 Go St. Louis Half Marathon
7/29/2012 San Francisco Marathon
9/15/2012 Air Force Marathon
10/14/2012 MDI Marathon

3/4/11 Little Rock Marathon 4:44:07
10/23/11 St. Louis RnR Marathon 5:08:14
4/30/11 Finished the Nashville Country Music Marathon 5:20:39

Well the Go St. Louis Marathon was a No Go. They closed the 9.5 mile turn off for the Full at 9:05 am due to excessive heat. That was pretty much right in front of me. So I'm going to try again. Running the Nashville Country Music Marathon on April 30th.

So I'm going to try to run a MARATHON, will run/walk it.
I'm much less definite about this than in the past, because right now I'm in such a good place. I've done 8 half marathons and now I'm totally pain free and feel pretty comfortable with a run of up to 15 miles. Am I tempting fate. I've registered for the Go St. Louis Marathon on April 10th. I wanted something local, because it's easier and cheaper.

Upcoming Races/Rides
October 23, 2011 St. Louis Rock and Roll Half or Full Marathon

So here's my long run plan. I'm moving up more slowly than many people, because I'm already at 15 miles and not doing the Marathon until April. I'm using Jeff Galloways run/walk program

Trying t o refocus again. Even though I wandered away from Spark for a while I did not forget all I learned. I've got some pretty good exercise habits. I did walk the St. Charles, MO Lewis and Clark Half Marathon (shortened to 10 miles due to Tropical Depression Ike) and the St. Louis Track Club Half Fall of '08. I still need to work on eating. How does one track food when cooking for three kids 11, 14, and 16. I prepare so much food and measuring what goes into each recipe and then calculating calories and serving size is daunting.

Got a little side tracked this summer, but back to refocus. Did not lose any weight, but did not gain any. Kept walking and did a 6 day 5 night wilderness canoe trip. Planning on walking the St. Charles, Mo Half Marathon in Sept.

Joined the Virtual Walk to meet another Sparker Team. I'm walking to Boise ID from Manchester, MO. Total distance 1603 miles. This is my its a long term thing commitment. To help get those miles I'll be walking the dog at least 1 mile on each of his three walks. I'll do several long walks a week, use to calculate distance in the neighborhood. I'll do Leslie Sansone videos to get in distance when the weather is bad. Weekly goal 30 miles a week .

I'm a 46 year old homeschooling mom of three kids, 15, 13 and 10. I'm working towards a more healthy lifestyle. I like to hike and hope to lose weight so I can be a little lighter as I hike up those hills.
I am starting with a commitment to 45 minutes a day of cardio. This will be in one or two sessions. A mix of outdoor walking and Leslie Sansone Walk at home videos.
