Wasn't really sure which forum to post this
The group Black Women Do Workout is hosting an event in the Baltimore, MD area. Details below
Take a brisk walk with 77 years young Mrs. Ernestine Shepherd on Saturday morning (7/6/13) at 6:30 am and start off a new fitness routine! Find out what she eats, how she stays so dedicated and info on her workout routine! We will meet in Randallstown, MD (outside of Baltimore) with Ernestine who is not only a body builder, motivational speaker, fitness guru and personal trainer but more importantly, a very kind and loving friend. If you ever thought you may needed a little extra motivation towards taking control of your life, you can start here with us! We will announce more details on the meetup location once we have enough people joining us.

I've signed up for some more races! I know I will be signing up for more this year. I really have to create a spending account just for my running. I have to look at my budget to determine this!

I signed up for the Hope on Wheels 5k for September 9th in Chicago. Really excited! Any advice you guys may have to increase speed would be awesome! I am at the end of week 4 for the Sparkpeople c25k for jogging. I am completing about 2.5 miles in 50 - 60 minutes. I need to finish 3.1 miles in less than 50 minutes. Is this possible before the race?

Be careful what you set your heart upon - for it will surely be yours.
-James Baldwin

“Not I, nor anyone else can travel that road for you.
You must travel it by yourself.
It is not far. It is within reach.
Perhaps you have been on it since you were born, and did not know.
Perhaps it is everywhere - on water and land.”
― Walt Whitman, Leaves of Grass

I signed up for a series of seven 5k runs over the course of the summer to keep me on track. Four down, three to go!

I ran the course this morning on my own and did for the first time without any walking intervals. Oddly enough, my time was similar.

A little lipgloss goes a long way. And with my lipgloss and a bottle of water, I am going to beat this overweight thing.

I did the 5K Race for the Cure in May and I also did the Capital City Quarter Marathon in May. I may not do anymore races this year until I shed some more pounds. I did sign up for the Spark Virtual 10k though.

EXCUSES ARE FOR PEOPLE WHO DON'T WANT IT BAD ENOUGH!
