I just wanted to wish you luck on your marathon. You've done really well on your weight loss so far. ... congrats! I first clicked on your page when I saw the rock-climbing thumbnail. I used to rock-climb so thought I'd check out what you had to say. Then, I saw your marathon goal. I have run 4 marathons in the past, but stopped running when my husband & I had trouble conceiving a child. We had no luck with that, so I went to grad school to "add something" to my life. That was a very busy time (and my dad died in my last year), so running (and my artwork) got pushed to the back burner. I graduated in October, and seem to have settled into some kind of low-energy mode. My last marathon was way back in Apr. 2000. I just joined SP yesterday and am feeling a new rush of motivation. I think I'll just set my goals for a 10K race by the spring. Which marathon are you doing in October? My husband is thinking of registering for either Akron, OH (end of Sept.) or Wineglass (Corning, NY) in October. He has to decide soon as he needs to tweak his training to fit the date.
All the best to you! Keep up the amazing work! Sandra 3838 days ago
