Hi! I'm Mako and I am currently going on my third year of maintaining a 45 lbs. weight loss. Spark and the people here have made it so much easier to live the lifestyle that I want.
Last winter I did 60 days of Insanity and then decided to try running to try and keep the fitness level that I currently had. This was the billionth time I tried running, I hated running, and low and behold I now love running! I guess getting into shape make running a bit easier.
I have been running for eight months now and have done a 5K, 10K and a 1/2 marathon. My oldest daughter and I will be joining some cousins in April to do the Oklahoma City 1/2 Marathon. It should be lots of fun!
I have four kids ranging from 13 to 18 with my oldest a college freshman. We also have two dogs, a Siamese (for those cat people you know why I didn't just say cat) and a horse. All of the furkids belong to one of my kids as my "heart" dog and my once-in-a-lifetime horse died two years ago and within six months of each other. That was another reason for the new found love of fitness...too much time on my hands. (If that's possible with four kids!)
I was actually invited to join another group, but this one seems to fit me better. I hope to be a positive member and I look forward to getting to know you all better.
