Running for joy!

I was never much of a runner, but last year in preparation for our wedding, I started hitting the pavement. Started running 5K's, 10K's, 12K's...and worked my way up to my first half marathon. Although I never really did it for speed, I really enjoyed it. Running over the winter is difficult for me but as spring time rolls around, I am back at it! This year I plan to run a marathon! Training has commenced and I am looking forward to the results!

As an animal nutritionist, I have a good idea of how nutrients react in the body. It has helped me better understand my needs and tailor a diet accordingly. I can get a little OCD at times, which can hinder my progress, but thoroughly enjoy learning more about the human side of nutrition!

Hey Hey Hey! It was SO nice to see your note this morning! Really! :) I hope we can stay in touch again. Wedding planning is going well; all the "big" things are figured out and now it's kind of early for some of the smaller things so I am not in "stress mode" yet (wedding is next September). I have been running and biking still but feeling a need to something new too. I'm thinking about asking for roller blades for Christmas! Otherwise, life is pretty normal. I recently joined a 7 week challenge on SP in a Biggest Loser format. I don't plan to win at all, but the motivation is good for the holiday season. I am in three weddings next year, starting in Feb and I wanna look good!

Anyway, let's stay in touch!!!
