Hello! I currently live in Waynesville, MO, which is located outside Fort Leonard Wood. I'm currently teaching 8th Grade Math in Waynesville, MO. I'm in the IL Army National Guard as a Medical Service Corp Officer . I spent 12 years as a health care specialist (medic). I've been in for almost 19 years and I love it. I've been deployed twice and I learn more and more each time I deploy. I've completed 35+ half marathons, 4 full marathon, and several runs in between. I'm currently training for my 7th Army Ten Miler in Washington, DC in October. I became a mommy in February to Paydin whom I adore. Time to get my prepregnancy body back!

My Goals:
When I got back from Iraq in 2005 I lost almost 30 lbs by watching what I eat and I've gained a few back. I've started watching what I eat and tracking my calories and I'm being very successful. My goal is to get to 135 by March 26th, my wedding day. I met my goal and now my goal is to maintain my current weight of 130 and tone up.

My Program:
I'm currently training for my third run of the Army Ten Miler in Washington, DC. I'm following Runner's World 10 Mile Training program and run between 20-25 miles per week. I also cross train using P90X2 and Les Mills Pump.

Personal Information:
I am currently living in Waynesville, Missouri outside Fort Leonard Wood. I have been deployed to Iraq and Kosovo as a health care specialist (medic) with the IL Army National Guard. I have been a member of the Army National Guard for 14 years. Prior to deploying to Kosovo I taught middle school math for 4 years. Currently I teach 8th Grade Math which is my favorite age group.

Other Information:
I love exercising and spending time with friends and family. Exercising is my life. I love it and it helps me relieve stress and reach my inner peace.

    Hi! I noticed your comment about the fresh produce in Kosovo, which led me to your Sparkpage. My husband retired from the Army out of Ft. Leonard Wood. We really liked it there, but when he retired we moved out of the area for jobs.

    Hope you really like MO. We still have some really good friends there.

    Hi! Read your post about the whole being deployed and working out thing .. I can only recommend finding a buddy to be accountable with. Hit the gym a few time and see if there is someone there you would feel comfortable with. That way you can set the times you'll be able to work out and you won't be as apt to not show! Good luck and thank you for your service! Varina
