I'm a single mom of two boys, fitting a healthy lifestyle of exercise and food can be a struggle and a challenge.....but I no longer think twice about it. I realize I'm teaching my children the importance of being healthy.

I'm training to run my first 5k in April 2010, I've never been a runner my entire life, so here's to removing NEVER from my vocabulary.

Way to go on running your mile without looking back. I am so excited for you. I have a similar goal of running a 5k. I am not sure I will achieve it. I have to get back to training.
