Love2Run Love2Run Hi! I'm Sharon and I started running after I had my son at the age of 35. Moving to the Florida area, I invested in a jogging stroller and ran for hours along the Bay. I ran my first Race,
The Gasparilla Classic Long Distance 15K and ever since got the Running Bug. I have met so many runners and at that time, mother's with children and jogging strollers. I ran my first Marathon, Gulf Beaches and did the best time ever. I was 9 minutes from qualifying for the ...
Love2Run Love2Run Hi! I'm Sharon and I started running after I had my son at the age of 35. Moving to the Florida area, I invested in a jogging stroller and ran for hours along the Bay. I ran my first Race,
The Gasparilla Classic Long Distance 15K and ever since got the Running Bug. I have met so many runners and at that time, mother's with children and jogging strollers. I ran my first Marathon, Gulf Beaches and did the best time ever. I was 9 minutes from qualifying for the Boston Marathon. I have a one time goal to run that, hopefully 2012. 2011 has been an unusual year for me, very challanging as I'm sure with everyone.
I am so Happy that my friend told me about SparkPeople. All of the tools have really motivated me and kept me on track.
Keep on Sparking! It's my way of LIFE and I Love it!!

Update 5/2014: A few years ago I had surgery and have not gotten back to Long Distance Running. Last year I started training for a 10 K and got sick in September 2013 for two months. By the time I was well again it was too cold for this Florida Gal, now here in NC. I have been walking and doing some running. I also have been doing lots of Cardio DVD's and Weight Training. I still have my goals to get back to running. Determination= Victory!

We've had mom 12 years now. She is 93. We had a house fire. My youngest daughter needed us, and have 2 more daughters and 4 grandkids here. So we moved back here (after a horrible 9 mos of renting and waiting for ins company). 120 was too hot, but this is too cold haha. I'd rather bundle up I think. Lived in Florida one year (Vero Beach). Beautiful state. Been told NC is too. Had no idea it was cold there though. It's been a terrible year, but feel a lot more settled now. Mom has her own area, and daughter lives upstairs with us and her dog. Hated the idea of her HUGE dog (English Bull Mastiff) 155 lbs. Slobbers, and kinda smells moving in too. Ends up we adore him!!! When life gives you lemons, we made lemonade!!!
