"It's day one of the rest of my life
It's day one of the best of my life
I'm marching on to the beat of a brand new drum
Yeah, here I come
The future has begun
Day one

Well, every single day Your grace reminds me
That my best days are not behind me
Wherever my yesterday may find me
Well, I don't have to stay there

See my hourglass is upside down
My someday soon is here and now
The clock is tickin'
And I'm so sick and tired of missing out

It's day one
And here comes the sun"

~ excerpt from "Day One" by Matthew West

This song is my theme song in getting back on track physically, emotionally, and even spiritually. I have had lots of ups and downs the last few years, but I keep plugging along!


Member Since: 7/10/2016

Fitness Minutes: 30,901

My Goals:
Short-term goal: finish half marathon running program (Red Rock App)--last year completed Week 8/12, but had to quit due to slight knee injury; starting over this spring and have completed Week 7/12.
Long-term goal: Hike my 3rd 14er (14,000 ft. mountain) in Summer 2019!


My Program:
Running (turtle pace), Weight Training & Pilates; SparkPeople for tracking, motivation, and support.



Personal Information:
Introvert Christian retired homeschool mom of 3 (one in high school, 2 in college); wife for 26 years.


Other Information:
I'm 5'7" on a good day, 5'6.75" the others! I'm 47 years old. I think it's important for people to know those two details because those weight loss trackers can give us false expectations. I've often wondered why I can't fit in a certain size of clothing or run as fast a speed as someone the same weight, but we all have different body types and age plays a big factor. But we're all in this marathon together, so let's get to it!

    than if you wait until tomorrow.
