I'm a runner now!

When I started sparking, I was overweight and had trouble finding time to exercise. I ate what I wanted and it was catching up to me. Sparkpeople helped me learn to eat the right portion of healthy, tasty food. I started running in January of 2011. I slowly added miles, using the 5k plan for running I ran my first 5k in July 2011. I added distance, trying to get faster, until I was doing 6 miles each Saturday. I ran the Day of the Dead 5k in 25 minutes and 26 seconds, my personal best. ...

I've lost 20 lbs, although the last few lbs are off and on. I joined Complete Runner training program in Raleigh and on April 2012 I ran my first half marathon! I think I can say I'm a runner now.

What's next? I'm biking the 24 Hours of Booty in Charlotte on July 26-27th to benefit the Lance Armstrong Foundation. I'm also running the RockN'Roll Marathon in Savannah on November 3rd.

Thanks for the Friend Add :D I see you are training for a 5K, how fun! I know you will be able to run a half marathon soon! I actually like them better than shorter races, not sure why, it does take a lot more time but they are fun I think it's the fact that you can "space out" and forget that you are running yet you are and well 13.1 miles is definitely an accomplishment I am proud of! YOU CAN DO IT!
