When I first discovered a love for running I was 48. I'm turning 51 this year and will run my first Half Marathon. I started running because I noticed that runners were usually lean. Now I run not only to control my weight but because it's my time. It's when I work out problems, find solutions to roadblocks, let go of stress and think of new ideas or discover new feelings. After my runs, I feel strong & confident; like I can take on the world! I am so proud of myself for discovering the runner in me at this stage of my life. For 2011, I will run my first HM and my goal is to stay injury free for the entire year. To accomplish that I will need to focus on stretching and strength training as much as running. My first HM is in's February and I already have butterflies just thinking about it!
