Hello SP! I have been on this website for years and have had ups and downs. I originally lost 80+ lbs but found that I was concentrating too much on food and exercise. For a long time, I thought I had found a happy balance. The scales have since tipped to the unhealthy side and I think it is time to balance things out. I am still 30lbs less then my original starting weight and would like to drop about 20 pounds to put me at a healthy, happy place. I have heel and back pain that would benefit from a change! All that being said, I am a mom of 4, wife of almost 19 years and a nurse in an operating room. I am the volunteer coordinator at out church and just finished running our VBS. My schedule is controlled by alot of people needing ally of my time. But I am deciding to give myself about 45 minutes a day to focus in me! I can do this!!

    Hi Charlie... WOW... A ten miler! Good for you!!!! You go girl! I have increased my running to 5 3/4 of a mile, but am hoping to do a full 10K this fall. Then begin to increase from even that. My goal is to do a 10 miler from Soldier Field next spring and a half marathon summer or fall 2010. So...assuming I'm not suffering from injury or other mishap, I hope to be in good running shape as well.

    The Tri is this Sunday and of course the usual jitters are there (wondering as I always do week before a big race, "Why did I sign up for this!" LOL). The water temp is only in the mid 60s with this cold spring we've had. I don't own a wet suit, so not sure if I'll rent one...doubt it.

    Hope your training is going well and you are gearing up for your big even as well. Coming up quick! :) Hope your water is warmer than mine! Yikes!

    Thanks for stopping by!

    Hi Charlie... Just checkin' up on you! Hope your training is in full gear! Tri Season #2 for us!!! Best wishes on all your races! My first race will be a 5K at Wrigley Field for the Chicago Cubs charities. My sons live nearby there and it's on my oldest's birthday. So...figured it'd fun to meet them down there and go out of lunch to celebrate!

    What races will you be doing this year?
