6/1/10 WOW!
I am in my 40's , have a terrific husband whom I have been married to for over 20 yrs and mother of 3 boys and a girl-ages 6 to 14.
I have been Sparking Since Sept 2008 and lost over 65 pounds at my lowest. I'm up a bit - 5 pounds from a year ago. I started running back then and have ran 2 1/2 marathons in 2009 and plan to run the Orlando Marathon in 2011.
I feel like the new lifestyle is sticking and I'm being a positive role model for my family. Exercise will be the key for me to maintain my weight. I've met some great people through this site both local and far away that I now consider family that are always here to encourage.

June 2010 goals:
Logging my food daily
Run 90 miles (training for a 1/2 marathon on July 10)
Lose 5 pounds
Blog once a week

    SunCity! How I WISH!!! I finally tried Trail Running in June - and fell and badly sprained my wrist. I am just now starting to try push ups and a little yoga... haven't done much running at all since that fall. I have been walking every day - but I doubt I could whip myself into shape fast enough to meet even last years time... what about you? Are you doing the 1/2?

    Hey Polly!!

    Thanks for popping by hon! I am really hoping I get to see you in August. We are staying positive, and will continue on that end!

    How are you doing? I hope this year has been amazing for you:)

    Hi Polly, so nice to hear from you. I love the mountains, and wished I could visit them more often. And yes, I'm back to running again - that was a very long lay-off, that I hope to never repeat. It really hit home about "listening to the body" and backing off at the first sign of injury. No more pushing things for me.

    I was up to 5.5 miles today, including a nice walk after the run part. I am really aiming for a 10k distance on my runs. After that, we'll see where it goes from there.

    Take care!
