I run because one day I felt like I needed a complete jolt. I had counted calories and upped exercise before, but I needed something completely different to keep me motivated. I needed a goal that was not measured in pounds and ounces.

I love traveling, which is why my rewards for my two big goals (Onederland and Losing 100+ Pounds) are trips!
As many of you have commented, yes, the background image on my page is of Santorini, which was supposed to be my reward for droppi... Read more
