Happy New Year!

Monday, December 31, 2012


It's been a long time since I've posted on my Spark page. I've been really busy training - and then completing my first 1/2 marathon this month. A 1/2 marathon was never on my radar or my to-do list - I've never been the athletic type. It wasn't until I learned I could join Team Challenge as part of the Crohn's and Colitis Foundation of America and bring awareness to Crohn's disease, let people I know I have it and I'm determined to not let it get me down, and most importantly - it allowed me to prove to myself that I could physically do something that made me feel like I was in control and that the Crohn's was not. It was a long road - fundraising and training - but it happened! On December 2 I crossed the finish line in Las Vegas with an amazing feeling of accomplishment. I also met so many wonderful people that weekend who understood the pain and the desire to conquer the pain of Crohn's. It has inspired me to live a healthier lifestyle and to continue by setting my sights on another 1/2 marathon - I'm thinking Nashville 2014.

In 2013 I hope I'll get back into the swing of things with my Spark. I am ready for the new year and all the hope that comes with it!

Happy New Year!!!! emoticon
