I'm Running to be FREE!

Thanks for visiting my sparkpage!

I joined SparkPeople in February 2009 as a way to track my food and exercise. Little did I know what amazing friends and encouragement I would receive in the 3 years since I joined.

Since March 2009, I have completed 18 half marathons, 6 marathons, 4 10K's, and many 5K's. Even beyond that - I could not have imagined the crazy and wonderful SPARK friends that would encourage me along my journey.

I joined SparkPeople in February 2009 as a way to track my food and exercise. Little did I know what amazing friends and encouragement I would receive in the 3 years since I joined.

Since March 2009, I have completed 18 half marathons, 6 marathons, 4 10K's, and many 5K's. Even beyond that - I could not have imagined the crazy and wonderful SPARK friends that would encourage me along my journey.

I began running as the result of a dare from a friend and eventually decided to run a marathon because a family member told me I couldn't finish. And, now, I am hooked - I love the encouraging and inspiring environment that races give you and I love running! It's not really about times and pace for me - it's about the journey! Many twists and curves along the way - but what a great road so far!

Hey, Lori! Thanks for commenting on my blog. To be honest, there was a point where I felt like I wouldn't be able to fully transition either. I kept getting really tight calves... But then I changed my approach & my form a little, & started concentrating on consciously relaxing my calves as I ran, & VOILA! That calf pain was gone. From that point, I knew I was on a good path with the shoes! I think anyone can really transition, it just takes careful attention to form & "trouble-shooting" to see what works. I am NEVER going back to "normal" shoes. Good luck with yours!! You may be surprised @ how far you get with them with a little time & patience!

Have a great week!
Darcy
