I am a wife, a mother of two children ages 13 and 10, a former elementary school teacher, and a group fitness instructor. I'm coming up on my 10th anniversary of teaching group fitness classes. I currently teach Body Step, Body Pump, and Body Jam.

I started back into running February 2011 and since then have run 2 half marathons, 2 full marathons, and several 5 and 10k races. My last marathon in February 2912, Myrtle Beach Marathon, qualified me for Boston which was my long term goal. I ran Boston in 1995 as my first and only marathon, and did so as a charity fundraiser. It was one of my favorite memories, but I've always had a secret dream to qualify for it and run it that way. My Myrtle Beach Marathon time was 3:39:37 which qualified me with 5:23 to spare! I won't find out until September whether or not I get in, since Boston fills up according to fastest times first, but I can say I was a "Boston Qualifier" at least!

I yo-yo with my weight, usually having an extra 10 pounds on me in the winter. This winter was the first one in several that I did not gain anything due to marathon training. Unfortunately that gain came late this spring following a running injury and a 3 week trip to Europe. I'm currently working on getting the weight back off, but it's harder each year.

Upcoming races:
Area 13.1 Roswell, GA 8/18/12
Chicago Marathon 10/7/12
Savannah Rock N' Roll Marathon OR Half Marathon 11/3/12 (Depending on how Chicago goes)
Boston April 2013???????? ( I find out in September!)

Hi I saw that you are a group fitness instructor. I was a group fitness instructor for about 18 years and then stopped but am thinking of getting back into it again after I move next month. What are some popular classes these days to teach? I know I'll have to get some new cert's, just not sure what areas to focus on. Thanks!!

emoticon Fourth Year Sparkversary!! emoticon What an awesome accomplishment, since 15477 others joined the week you did, I am sure most all of them have long since quit or never even got started. Give yourself credit as Judith Beck PhD says in her wonderful book "The BECK Diet Solution" for learning to think like a thin person. emoticon
