'cause I can't help but smile at mile two

I'm living proof that you are never too old get fit and healthy. My Spark journey started in 2011 at my highest weight of 201. I lost 61 pounds to achieve my goal weight in November, 2013. I feel 20 years younger and empowered. With the tools and support, I will maintain my weight. I'm equipped to succeed.

Over the course of two years, I've learned to step out of my comfort zone and try new things. I never dreamed I would become a runner but I have the running bug.

An Irish Prayer

May God give you ...
For every storm, a rainbow,
For every tear, a smile,
For every care, a promise,
And a blessing to each trial.
For every problem life sends,
A faithful friend to share,
For every sigh, a sweet song,
And an answer for each prayer.
