I set new goals for myself to become a runner by June of 2015 and to developing my muscles so I can look toned and lean.........nothing can STOP Me!

My first race ever was completed on Sunday June 7th and it was not a 5K, not a 10K but a half marathon (21.1 k). I am a runner and feel awesome!
I am empowered and I WILL REACH All OF MY GOALS!

Personal Information:
My name is Susan and
I am now heading into my 64th year. I plan on living until I am 103 years so I am working on staying as healthy as I can through Spark People.

I am married to my soul mate Brian and have been for going on 39 years . We have 4 adult children and 4 grown grandchildren as well as an honorary daughter and grand daughter who live in Denmark and we are the proud owners of 4 beautiful dogs and 3 wonderful cats that we rescued from being feral and have socialized.

I love to do world travel with my husband and I also enjoy reading a good mystery or crime novel.

I find that power walking and running is the greatest way for me to de-stress and I love it!

Outside of my home commitments, I am dedicated to my 82 year young mother who is also my best friend. We spend at least 2 days a week together doing all sorts of fun things.

Other Information:
When I was in high school 1966-1970 I was on the gymnastics team so every year on my birthday I stand on my head to prove that I still have it!

We all need each other for support and just to know we are not alone no matter where we are on this journey. Of course God is with us, but we are to love and help each other. Be blessed!!
