I am a 24-year-old recent college graduate in Illinois. What started out as "I just want to lose a few pounds" ended up turning into "how physically fit can I get?" I discovered a newfound love for running in December 2007, and since then have dedicated 2008 to (the beginning of) being physically fit. This is my journey.

What's MY story, you wonder? Interestingly enough, I've never been over 140lbs for my 5'4 frame. It's not in the overweight category, but I definitely was not happy and I knew that if I didn't do something about it, I would soon become overweight. Like a lot of people, I put on weight in college. Eating dorm food, erratic sleep schedules, and busy days all contributed to weight gain. However, here I am, finished with college, and READY TO START MY LIFE!

I'm one that is highly motivated by achievement. What is a more awesome goal than physical fitness? It's perfect -- I can work on it for the rest of my life. SUCH a win-win! The challenge of balancing my lifestyle with my career is even more of a motivator, and I KNOW I can do it.

So, find that part of yourself that wants to be the best you can be, and BE IT! Don't accept anything less -- failure is just failing to get back up. Come on, Sparkers! It's a new day!

2008 Amazements:
*Lost 15lbs -- reached 125lbs!
*4/20/08 -- FIRST 5K, 32:32!
*5/26/08 -- 33:34
*9/19/08 -- 30:42 + FIRST PLACE IN AGE GROUP MEDAL!
*9/28/08 -- 30:23!
