I have struggled with my weight my entire life. When I turned 40, something clicked and I decided it was time to make some changes. For the first time ever I am focusing on lifestyle changes, not dieting. I'm about 1/3 of the way through my journey. I have my good days, and I have my bad days, but I never, ever give up. Slow and steady. Progress not perfection.

A search of the words "color run" brought me to your page. Have you participated this year? I have lots of questions...I am planning on Color Walking in July in Minnesota.

Good luck, fellow Color Athlete.

“The one thing all famous authors, world class athletes, business tycoons, singers, actors, and celebrated achievers in any field have in common is that they all began their journeys when they were none of these things.” Yet still, they began their journeys, Mike Dooley

“In the beginning, the price of giving great love is risking that it won't be returned. Until you understand, of course, that great love is always returned. With interest.” - Mike Dooley

“I do believe that the single most important thing I could ever share with you with regard to maximizing the health, harmony, and happiness in your life can be summed up in just two words: 'Love Yourself'” - Mike Dooley

Have a great weekend
