Welcome to the team!

Just a caution, that I would not recommend anyone to try and run a marathon in their first year of running, but especially be careful if you have 100 pounds to lose along the way.

This team is awesome for support and motivation. Just reading some of their fantastic pages will get you out the door on the days you are struggling.

Good luck!

You can do it - just let your training take you there and use Spark to get inspiration and track those calories IN and OUT.

emoticon Hello, My name is Lynette. I really want to get back into running again. I was pretty hard core with it when I was in my early 30's, but since my first 1/2 marathon 9 years ago I've slowly gained back the 100lbs I worked so hard to get rid of! Running kept me sane. I want to depend on it again. I am working my way up to my my big goal. I want to run a 1/2 marathon for my 40th birthday. I already signed up for one--November 13th, in Malibu, CA. It's a day after my 40th. I just started hitting the road again. I ran (well more like a slow jog with a few walk breaks squeezed in there) 2 miles yesterday. I switched over to motion control shoes too. Hoping that will help my knees handle to pressure more. I'd love to hear about anyone else's experiences.
My other goals are:
1. Lose 100 lbs by March 2012
2. Lose 30 lbs by June so I can REALLY start my 1/2 marathon training
3. Run a 5 K in June
4. Run a 1/2 Marathon in Nov 2011
5. Run full Marathon in March 2012
6. Run fun races all year long in 2012
7. Never have to lose 100lbs again!
