Sandy Smith-Let's Stay Fit!

I joined Spark people after hearing about it from others. I love to be involved in anything to do with health and fitness. I work at my local YMCA as a Personal Trainer, Fitness instructor, and front desk staff. I teach Females in Training, Kick Boxing, and Running 101/201 classes. Fitness and helping people are my passion. (Staying fit myself is a must as well!) I lost 50 lbs over 20 years ago and have kept it off, so I know the battles people face, and love to help them reach their goals. ...

2- 5 mile races
1-8k
4-10k's
14 half marathons (made a goal of running my first 1/2 when I turned 40. Ran it in March 2006.)

Hey Sandy! I was just checking my old page of mine and you were the only friend I added on that page back in 2008. "Theblueeyes17"

I hope you're doing well! I'm doing my 2nd virtual 5k on this site sometime between Oct 28th - Nov 3rd, and my first virtual 10k run on the 17th.

Glad to see people continuing on with this site since 2008! Have a great Wednesday!
