I carried an extra 25 lbs for 25 years. In the era of the "Biggest Loser" that may not seem like a big deal. I had always been told by family and friends that I could "carry it." The photo of me finishing a half marathon back in 2006 attests to that. Finally, on Jan 1, 2009 I decided that I just didn't want to "carry it" anymore, not for 13.1 miles, not up and down stairs, nowhere.

Thanks so much for the goodie! I actually am keeping track of when I will need new shoes again, which will be when I hit 650 miles this year. I try to get new ones every 500 miles, but I have such a hard time remembering. I think shoes should have built-in odometers, like cars!

Hope your 4th of July was full of fun.

Hi, thanks for the blog comments. The cake was amazing even the egg looked pitted and like a stone. The heads were done on polystyrene and then joined on at the end. It was a mud cake base and so soft it was amazing how they could decorate it. It took 10 hours to put together.

Thanks for adding me as your Sparkfriend. I want to do a half marathon this, but I'm not the fastest runner. Plus, I'm still carrying more pounds then I want to be doing a half. I started a 12 week Boot Camp Class, so I know that I'm on my way to losing more pounds. I'm open for any advice on doing a emoticon .
