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,

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!


Current Status:
SUNSHINEYOURWAY How badly I want to go out for a Run. Still not feeling well and temps in the 40's, playing the waiting game. Maybe Sunday. HM next Sunday..

Hi Sharon,
I did a training run yesterday for my Hero HM on Oct 19th. It was my first dedicated long run since my last HM in Chicago. It felt real good. I did it race pace, early morning, so I am definitely ready for the race. Now it is all downhill until race time. Thanks for asking. I did not mean to be so vague.
Ciao! emoticon

Hi Sharon!

Thanks for the nice comment on my blog! It's so good to be back! So proud of you and all you've accomplished with your running! I've decided I'm going to try to get in for some PT for my back and hips. Maybe they can show me some core strengthening exercise that won't further injure me and may help me with some weight loss besides. What do you think, does that sound like a good plan?

Hugs,
Marsha
