"You will never regret choosing to work hard and climb to the top of that hill, no matter how challenging it may be or how much resistance is trying to hold you back."
Coach Nicole

I am a work in progress, but each day is progress that I can be proud of!

I ran my 1st 5k on April 2nd 2011, I finished in 44 min! I am so proud to call myself a runner. I was never able to run very far before, even when I was in shape! But with the help and encouragement of SP, I did it! Can't wait until my next one! Thanks Spark People and Spark friends for all your encouragement and support!

"God, grant me the Motivation to get off the couch and MOVE. The will power to navigate a world of fried, sugary, fatty, salty temptations. The peace of mind to not stress about the numbers on a scale. And the Common Sense to chose food for fuel and accept myself as I am." ~Unknown {also borrowed from fellow
