I am a girl that lived unhealthy for many years of her life.
I choose though through my faith in Christ to treat my body right and break that cycle. To live a life of exercise and eating right. Our bodies are made to be healthy . They are made to be moved. The changes that your body can go through are AMAZING! I have lost 35 pounds since college and have changed my life! My thoughts, attitude, and approach to food is WAY different. I highly encourage you to start your journey to be healthy because it is WORTH THE STRUGGLE! .....So since I started this site I have went up and down in my weight but this website has helped me to live a healthier lifestyle.

Without God I would not be able to train for half marathons :)

    LOL! I get that question fairly often. Here are a couple of blogs I did on the subject. (You'll have to copy and paste. Spark won't let me post live links in Member Comments):

    Thanks for commenting on my page! I try to keep it full of inspirational & motivational stuff, to keep me going. I really like your page, love the background!! I can relate to your comment on eating, seems like I struggle every single day with eating right. Ugh, but I've got to keep trying and pushing myself to make the right choices!

    I ran a half this past January ... and so far found that it's enough for me. It was a lot of (treacherous) fun, but I got really burnt out on running in the process. I still pound the pavement a few times a week, but we'll see if I get bit by the bug again for this fall. I'm also trying to limit my lone-time cardio to 1 hr/day, so that would really kill the long run.

    As for your first half though, don't forget to take LOTS of pictures! Like stalk every race camera person you see. Really!

    I'm tiny in height - 5'0 on a good day - so even one pound looks like ten on me. Tall girls are so lucky!

    Good luck on your half! Will it be your first?
