Here's to a healthier future!

Many years ago I successfully lost over 30 lbs. Sadly they found me again slowly but surely over time. I have decided to show them who's boss once and for all.

I have 3 relatively grown children and 2 grandchildren. I intend to be healthy and extremely active for a very long time. I have walked 3 Half Marathons and 1 Full Marathon. Recently I started running for the first time in my life. Whew! What a challenge!

Fitness Minutes: 7,395

My Goals:
My primary goal is to reach 135 lb.s. I also am working towards walking a mile in under 15 min., running a 5k in under 43 min. and taking up bike-riding again. Ultimately I plan to develop a healthy lifestyle for a long, active life with my family.

My Program:
Portion control, healthy food choices, lots of water.
Keep track of my eating habits. Walking, running, strength training. Monitoring my my inner Chocoholic.

Personal Information:
I live in So. CA with my husband of 32 yr.s, and our dog. We have 3 grown children and 2 amazing grandchildren. My work as an x-ray tech (Mammography, Bone Densitometry) keeps my running but not enough to keep the weight off. This is a good place for me!

Other Information:
"Stand up straight, smile, and look at yourself like you would a friend."

Fall down 7 times, get up 8.

While Iron Girl sounds reminiscent of the Iron Man it's not. Here in Denver it's just a 5K, but it's a women's only race that is lots of fun. I did it in 45 minutes (a PB) which was pretty good. I figured I'd be slower because I just had my orthotics adjusted (a lot) and I wasn't sure how my feet, legs and hips would handle it. This next weekend I'm off to Spearfish, SD for the Leading Ladies race, my next 1/2 marathon. It too is a women's only race and lots of fun cuz unlike Nike it's all downhill.

I try to train on hills once a week just to keep me ready for those races that like to say "flat" or "gentle hills" and they lie. Keep those arms up in a runner's stance and it'll help you get up those hills.

Take care ---------------- Janet

Sounds like you are well on your way to crossing the finish line at Nike. You Go Girl!
