I am thoroughly enjoying running now, and while I'd love to lose those last 2-3 pounds that seem to be stuck, that is no longer my focus. My fitness level has continued to improve over the past couple years, and the more varied types of running I do (long distances, speedwork, etc.), the faster I'm getting! It's wonderful to continue to see improvements! I want to maintain a level of fitness so that I could run a 10K whenever I felt like it, and from there, a half marathon isn't much more training away. And now I have this idea that a marathon isn't as crazy of an idea as it used to be!

Member Since: 9/24/2009

Fitness Minutes: 30,680

My Goals:
I have decided to train for a marathon that is scheduled for Sept. 2013!

I want to keep cross-training by going to Zumba and work more on strength and core training, since I know this will help me with my running.


My Program:
I run about 4 days per week and do Zumba 1-2 times per week.



Personal Information:
My name is Jessica and I live in NW/North Central PA with my husband, son, 2 basset hounds, and a cat.

    I just wanted to say hi and tell you that even though I've been away from SP for the past several months (bogged down with work and stress) I am looking forward to ending the mighty-year-of-challenges that has plagued me this past year and start fresh soon... I may be still a bit scarce around here for the next little while but I did want to let you know that I've been thinking of you and hope you are doing well in life, in happiness, and in your journey.
