So excited! I have FINALLY hit to 30 pound weight loss mark! It has been a very long journey to get here and I am not done yet but I am thrilled! How wonderful it will be to be running my 6th marathon Sunday so much lighter! I am so thankful for SPARK and all my SPARK friends who encourage and inspire me!

Love you all and can't wait to have my first ever face-to-face meeting with some of my spark buddies tomorrow at the Twin Cities Marathon Expo!
Your blogs are an inspiration for me. I've taken up off road mountain running but I have weight to lose to be good at it, rather than just participate. I can eat way more than I burn. Doesn't take long to eat 2000calories at McD's does it??? But that takes hours of running to burn off. And when you start at a higher fat level than most runners you have to restrict calories. And maybe lose a bit of muscle but given the choices I want lean mass for running. AND you have some lovely lean mass! Way to go and thanks for blogging on your runners journey.
