I don't win races, but I always cross the finish line. I'm not fast, but I try my best to become faster. I don't have sports endorsements or earn a paycheck, but that doesn't stop me from running. My pace does not define me. Just because "professional" does not precede "athlete" in describing me doesn't make my running any less valuable. I am an everyday athlete; leading a normal life, but with big goals and dreams. I am an athlete. I am a runner. (runzoerun.com)

I am a 47 yo (soon to be 48) gentle woman farmer. I have struggled with weight gain all my teenage/adult life due to PCOS. Adding to this challenge is hypothyroidism and perimenopause. Talk about hormonally challenged! *LOL* I enrolled with Spark People in 2008…left…but returned last November 2009. I have lost 10 pounds since then, and have gained a fitness level I thought I would never see again. But am always looking for new ideas, and ways to improve.
I enjoy the boards because I read about others struggles and accomplishments, which keeps me focused and motivated. I may not post a lot but I am lurking about for sure!
