Run with perseverance the race marked out for you ...

I started running in October 2006 after standing as a spectator at the finish line of the Inaugural Rock 'N' Roll Half Marathon in San Jose. Less than a year later I crossed that same finish line as a Half Marathoner. I'm still running...

2010 Update: It took awhile to get there, but in April 2009 I ran my first marathon. Less than a year later I finished marathon number 6, including an ultramarathon.

In the first 17 weeks of 2006 I lost 17 pounds with the Sparkplan. My main motivator was an upcoming vacation in Hawaii and I reached my goal weight just a week before the trip! I never knew healthy weight loss could be so simple.
I also have to give credit to the online community here for helping me to reach my goals. The support, accountability, motivation and inspiration I've received here is priceless!

Hi Ivette! I've been keeping a quiet eye on you on FB and thought I'd drop in here and let you know how much you inspire me. I think back to when we all had about the same amount to lose and you have done so well!! You go, girl!
