Besides weight loss, what other improvements have you noticed?
Since I started running, my body fat has dropped from 30% to 17-20%. My lung capacity is amazing now, and when I had a recent VO2 test done, my running coach's response to the results was, "Wow. Wow. Wow." My balance is better, and I feel younger today at almost 50 than I did in my 20s. I’ve also been informed by several people lately that I’ve become a female Benjamin Button. I’m aging backward.
What are some of your running goals and accomplishments?
My main goal is to complete the Portland Marathon. My current mileage accomplishment is 15 miles. It totally blows me away that I was able to do that! After the marathon, I would like to find some trail runs because I think that would be super fun!
Anything else you'd like to add?
Every time I tie on my running shoes, I amaze myself with how far I’ve come and what I find my body is capable of doing!
