26.2 Sassy project! Diamond Strong!

What a difference two years makes, thanks to Sparkpeople.

This girl is on a new mission to complete her first full marathon this fall in Richmond Va. Just two years ago I was telling everyone, how I did not want to be fat and 50! Since than I have lost 120 pounds!

I started running 2 years ago, when I started, I truly can say I did not think I would ever accomplish running down the block. I could hardly even run a minute without thinking I would pass out! I kept plugging away, and 6 months later I successfully completed my first 5 k.

I never looked back I went on to do several more 5ks, 10ks, a half marathon. The future includes another half next weekend several more 5 ks are already booked. Even more exciting was the Asheville Marathon wrote an article about me, being a bubbly person on the local running scene!

The BIG one 26.2 a full marathon is signed up for and on the books for November 15, 2014! Let the 26.2/Sassy project begin! I am so excited, So stay tuned as the 26.2/Sassy project evolves! Hoping to lose those last 20 pounds during this training!

Thanks to all my Diamonds for being so inspiring, and my spark family for cheering me on Y'all Rock!

Sassy out!

Hope you are doing well on the BL Challenge...just stopping by with a thought for the day and some encouragement from one of the LOVELY LIMES!

The only way you get that fat off is to eat less and exercise more.

I've realized that I'm more important than food is. I love a big slice of pizza, but I love myself more. Being thin is about changing the way you think about yourself. It's about saying that you deserve to be healthy.

Courage doesn't always roar.
Sometimes courage is the quiet voice
at the end of the day, saying,
"I will try again tomorrow."
