Awesome, thanks for being the inspiration for many!

Believe in yourself and all that you are. Know that there is something inside you that is greater than any obstacle.

I did not realize this post had been highlighted on Sparkpeople until today and I'm simply overwhelmed with the response. It literally brought a tear to my eye. The congratulations and woohoos certainly were nice, but what really moved me were all of the people who told me that ,my story and post inspired and motivated them, which was the point of the post. I hope everyone follows through on their commitments to themselves and healthy living. It is not easy but it certainly is worth it.And it doesn't matter if you win the race, just getting out there and pushing your limits makes you a winner.

Thank you again for all of the kind words. It really means so much to me. And I'm definitely saving this in case I need a bit of motivation and inspiration during a rough spot.

Awesome job, At age 49 I'm hoping to run my first 5K next summer. I'll be 50 in January of 2014. December 24th will be 4years for me now since I started working outI.Thanks you so very much for the inspiration.

It doesn't matter how slowly you go, as long as you don't stop!

Congratulations!! I know EXACTLY where you're coming from. My Mom told me I popped out looking like a body builder. I have short legs (therefore short stride) and calves men would kill for so running is definitely not my strong suit! My favorite past time is mountain hiking which is what I am built for but it's not always easy to get someone to come along and the nearest decent mountain hikes are an hour away so not very handy for a daily routine. I started out by hiking local battlefield trails then wogging, then jogging. Now I try to do 2 half marathons a year. I know how hard it is and you should be sooooo proud of yourself!!
