I didn't become active until my early 30s. After my dad passed from smoking-related cancer in the mid 1980s, I quit smoking and started swimming, as I always loved the water. That activity led me to underwater hockey, which I have played since 1991. I compete in local, regional, and national tournaments, and have even been to a world competition.

I am also a runner and a RRCA Certified running coach (feel free to ask me questions). I have completed 2 marathons, 14 half marathons, a couple of trail races, some 10 milers, some 10Ks, and so many 5Ks that I stopped keeping count.

If I could send a message to people it would be that you are never too old to change your lifestyle, and to not expect huge changes in a short amount of time. It is a constant work in progress with backslides and progressions. Make constant, small changes and keep learning about health and fitness.

Thanks for the encouragement on my Blog. I actually used to live in WPB. We have been having Marathon Bahamas for a few years now. It will be happening again in January in Nassau. There will also be Half Marathons later this year. Check us out!

Aw, happy birthday to your mom! My mama is 87, will be 88 in February. She's always concerned about our health and it tickles her to death when we exercise and eat healthy. Y'all enjoy your Christmas, too!

Thank you for the Spark Goodie and Well Wishes. This bowl of soup looks so yummy. Being sick for almost 3 weeks sure is getting old. I really miss my running. Hopefully this weekend I can get out there for a 6-7 miler. I was hoping to do Half Marathon Nov. 2nd. We shall see.

Have a Super Day! You are doing awesome!
