I joined SP several years ago when I was approaching the BIG FIVE-O, with a goal of becoming healthier. I've learned there is no end point to that goal and I continually strive for a healthier lifestyle.
First and foremost - LOG
Listen to both my mind and body equally
Did a Whole30 in June 2014, now eating mostly paleo and loving it
I'm a 56 year-old retiree, who found a new passion in running only a few years ago. I hope I can continue to nurture that passion, even if it means changing the way I do it. I've been married for 31 years to a wonderful man who gave me three amazing step-children and seven grandchildren.
Currently maintaining weight, recovering from two ankle and one knee surgery in 2013 - along with a rather traumatic bowel resection in January 2014. Getting back into strength training and running in 2014 and loving the feeling of getting stronger again.
I get a blister, too, in the same darn spot, no matter what shoe I wear. I guess I should try glide and see if it helps. I was also told to try thicker socks, I did and at mile 6 it felt like my feet were being suffocated!!!! It seems that if I change my socks, I need to also change my shoes.
I am training for the LA Marathon in March. I still have quite a few months to go I would love to do a 1/2 marathon before March, but they are so expensive. $90-150 and I need to save that money for shoes and new insoles before March. It seems that races in Southern California are more expensive….
The one I am REALLY tempted to run is the Lost Dutchman 1/2 Marathon in Feb at the Superstition mountains, AZ. It was my fist 10K last year and for sentimental sake, I'd like to run it every year. It's only $80 and $85 for the marathon…twice as much fun for only $5 more, lol!
I'm so impressed with your determination! Keep up the awesome work!
My uncle lives in Florida, maybe I can plan a visit out there and we can run a 1/2 together!
