Hi Andrea and welcome to the team!

I started with the SparkPeople 5K Your Way Rookie Running Program. It was awesome. To tell you the truth, I never thought the day would come that I would run. That minute at a time made it doable. Still remember that first day when I realized that I wasn't going to die doing it. No kidding, I thought my heart would give out if I tried something like that. Surprising how quickly you build up. I am not a great runner, not even sure I consider myself a "runner" at all, but I LOVE sprints and they are a big part of my routine now. My ankle and the darn piriformis are the things that hold me back now. I just listen to my body and do what I can do!

Go get that 5k!!!

Happy Friday!

I've been a SparkFriend of our enthusiastic leader and finally decided to join the team!

I live in southwest Ohio, wife/mother of 2 young kids/employee...typical midwest working mom looking to lose some weight. My birthday is next week so I plan to make my 42nd year the best I've had in a decade!

See my blog entry from today to see my goals for 2013. Just know that I am aiming for my first DirtyGirl 5K in June and am really excited about it!

I haven't walked for quite some time so will have to get the legs and bod back in shape even in this cold weather. I plan on doing a couch-to-5K training program toward the end of March so I can get my body into running mode. We'll see how it reacts - if it doesn't like running, I will definitely keep up with the walking.

I'm glad to be a part of this team!
