at my nephew's wedding June 25 2011

Happy Thanksgiving from the clan! (DH took the snap)

Pre-race about 15 minutes to launch, with Kenyan Mitei Enock. Mitei placed 6 with a pace of 4:38 and a finish time of 28:43. I took a little longer.


Happy Birthday

I have found my solution to the never ending cycle of YoYo weight. It's a combination of Sparkpeople and HCC!

2010 began with a firm commitment to get in shape: for myself, and also for my husband and a reunion with 6 of my college gal pals. We EIU alumni rented a beach house and spent a week talking, laughing, sharing. Just us 7 girls! I could not "weight" to show off my loss to them. I wanted to lose another 10 pounds before then but am not frantic about it. I'm so pleased to be able to look and feel this good. I hope I encouraged them to do the same. It feels so good!

18 months later I just returned from a family wedding. I have maintained my weight and found reading "Younger Next Year" to be inspiring and motivational. Highly recommended.

I now run regularly and am seriously considering a 13.1 at Kiawah Island SC the end of 2011. My motivators are three: my husband of 29+ years; a rep named Merle (She has great joy in her life of which much stems from her great physical health and mental attitude) and John - colleague and mentor/coach whose current health battle with cancer continues to inspire me to NEVER give up.

After a hiatus of exercise, I am back at it, and in the gym. My knees did not want to do a 13.1 and I said ok - later.
My mentor passed away this month. He was laid to rest March 19, in Quantico, VA. I will remember his words and smiling face when I need inspiration to maintain my healthy life journey. Sempre Fi John!

    Hi there,

    The wedding was perfect. Beautiful in every way. The attention to detail was evident. There were a few things that did not go as planned, but that has to be expected with an event that big. The service here is painfully slow, so I'll wait to get back home to post pics.
