I'm living proof that you are never too old get fit and healthy. My Spark journey started in 2011 at my highest weight of 201. I lost 61 pounds to achieve my goal weight in November, 2013. I feel 20 years younger and empowered. With the tools and support, I will maintain my weight. I'm equipped to succeed.

Over the course of two years, I've learned to step out of my comfort zone and try new things. I never dreamed I would become a runner but I have the running bug.

2014 Races:
3/16 - Kona ShamRock n' Roll 10K
4/26 - Let's Move Festival of Races HALF
5/18 - Back to the Beach HALF
6/7 - Kona Run 10K
6/16 - Run for the Ribbon, Detroit Zoo 5K
8/? - Run for the Hills 10K
9/28 - Brooksie Way HALF

2013 Races:
Let's Move Festival of Races Half - 4/27 (Time 2:44:20)
Race for the Ribbon 5K - 6/15 (Time 28:52:0)
Farmington Run for the Hills 10K - August 17 (Time 59:28:11)
Detroit Free Press International Half Marathon � Oct 20th

I like to be sparked and spark others. We can help each other keep that spark ignited in 2014. I welcome new spark friends.

Time to rock 2014!

    I’m thinking about being a healthier, more caring and supportive person…who weighs just a bit less !

    How about you – about what are you thinking ?

    Remember how far you’ve come,
    Not just how far you have to go.
    You may not be where you want to be,
    But neither are you where you used to be!

    Whatever this week throws at you….you’ve got this!
