Not wanting to gain back any of the 70lbs I've lost. Not wanting depression to control my life....I feel better and more alive when I exercise....can't forget that! Wanting to live a long and healthy life for myself and my family!

i love the feeling of "i am a runner"; i love the magnificent scenery around me; i love the feeling that even when the weather sucks, when you put one foot in front of the other, everything fades away.

I need to run, I look foward to getting up early and running, or getting off work and httting the pavement or trail, or a full moon run with my dog. No matter how you slice it, I just love to run and am very thankful that I can.

I know I *should* be motivated by all the right things - improved health, long life, etc. I am to a degree. But there are other things I have to draw on when I need to dig deep.
To be stronger, healthier, fitter, and in smaller jeans than my younger sister. She has always been the pretty girl of the family. Gma once told me - patting my leg in that grandma way - "It's okay dear, if you are not the pretty one then at least you are the smart one." Ouch. I was around 12.
So I am thrilled to have lost so much weight, run 2 HMs, etc, but I am selfishly satisfied to be the smart AND pretty one now...

My motivation is simple....the more healthy and balance I become, physically, mentally and spiritually, the more beautiful life becomes. It isn't always easy, but one step at at time, I'm getting there!

My motivation is simple I have 4 kids under the age of 5 and a beautiful wife. I want to grow old and live a long healthy life to watch them grow up. I also want to be a wicked role model for my children. I do not wand them to make the same mistakes as me and have the same problems as me.
