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!

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!

emoticon As the New Year approaches and the old year is getting ready to leave, it is too easy to focus on want went wrong, what we did not like and forget that with the bad, we did have good! What goes wrong in our life is there for a purpose! I always say that it is the hard times that makes us appreciate the good times. When reflecting back on 2014 think back on the bad times and what we learned from them. Think back on the good times and remember to enjoy the memory. Here is a quote I love to help us think about the upcoming year.

“Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts.” – Winston Churchill

Let us say good bye to 2014 and face 2015 with the strength and courage that makes us who we are! Remember it takes courage to change, even when the change is for the better. You are worth the effort and commitment! emoticon emoticon
