Swimming my way to success!

I am 31 and finishing up my PhD (writing) in cancer biology. I am defending in April and graduating in May.

I've lost over 50 pounds on sparkpeople, but they have been the same pounds over and over. I'm tired of the cycle!

I am starting over with C25K! I really want to learn to be a runner and I really do enjoy it. I just don't have much stamina. I love that you have gotten back in the pool! I hope I can start swimming once a week here an there after I get back from Vacation in April. :D

I couldn't comment on blogger, but for white nails I like OPI my boyfriend scales walls -- the light grey from spiderman's collection. I think light off white works better than true whites. they're just too shocking.
