ACSM Health and Fitness Specialist

Just want to be healthy!

Upcoming runs:
Gusher Marathon, Beaumont, TX, May1

Here are ten things about me:

1. I have four beautiful daughters, ages 11, 13, 16, and 18.
2. I always liked to exercise while I was growing up, but was not an "real athlete".
3. I gained a little extra weight with each baby, and found myself up 20 pounds and way out of shape.
4. I lost 30 pounds nine years ago and have kept most of it off.
5. I started going to college in Spring of 06 and will graduate with a degree in exercise science in August. (Health/fitness has become my passion.)
6. I started running five years ago at 30 years old.
7. Like many others, I followed the Couch to 5k program, and it changed my life. I could not run a mile without stopping before I started the program.
8. Since then, I have run many 5Ks, 10Ks, a few half marathons, and three marathons. I plan to continue running forever.
9. I love spending time with my husband and children and it is my life's mission to maintain balance between taking care of myself and being there for them.
10. I am pretty boring--my idea of a good time is to curl up with a good book or get lost with a 1000 piece jigsaw puzzle.
(I posted this on the message board at Road Runners. Thought it would be good to include on my spark page as well.)

**Update**I completed my B.S. in exercise science and fitness management in August and became an ACSM certified Health and Fitness Specialist.
