Nicki - Welcome! And doing a half marathon is not at all unrealistic. When you want to take that step I'd be glad to help you reach that goal. Until then, have fun training and accomplishing your current goal of a 5K.

I long to accomplish a great and noble task, but it is my chief duty to accomplish humble tasks as though they were great and noble. The world is moved along not only by the mighty shoves of its heroes but also by the aggregate of the tiny pushes of each honest worker. - Helen Keller
Don't look at life as "you have to," view it as "you get to." It puts the fun back in things.

Hi, my name is Nicki. I am 39, a wife, a mother and a nurse. My goal is to feel better and have more energy. I think that by losing about 30 pounds I can accomplish this. I've recently (this week) started preparing for my first 5k in many years. I already feel better, even though I haven't lost any weight yet. I hope to eventually be able to do a half marathon, i think that would be amazing! That being said though, I'm not really sure how realistic that is, being since I work really long hours, but a girl can dream, right? Anywho, Im looking forward to getting healthier and feeling better and my first 5k :)
