HI - Thanks for checking out my page! I'm a runner who continues to need to lose 25 pounds. I didn't start running until my early 40's. It started because I was the race director for a local 5k event "The Race Against Breast Cancer." I was diagnosed with breast cancer in May 1998 at the age of 37. I got involved with the 5k event to support the cause. However, I decided that I really would like to run the event, but I wasn't a runner at all! So, I started training - and didn't want the RABC to be my first event - so ran a couple other local 5k's. I wasn't fast - but loved running. Since then, I've ran in the Marine Corp marathon, and several half-marathons. My last half was the Texas Marathon on January 1, 2009 - and it was an awesome race and event!

Realizing that to lose weight, I need to burn more calories than I consume. Getting the exercise isn't the problem, but reducing my calories is. I continue to learn and will strive for my goal of weighting in the low 130's.

Oh - and I love wine! And, have found that once I have a glass, then my intentions with food is easily curtailed!
