My Next Major Challenge

Wednesday, August 07, 2013

HI Everybody,

Today is Tuesday, August 6th, 2013 and I am excited and nervous all at the same time.

Many of you know who follow me that I have ran two marathons to date, both have been the Dallas Marathon in 2011 and 2012. I ran my FIRST marathon in the pouring down rain and 40 degree weather. I was injured, but I finished it! The say I started my journey in 2009, I made the statement that I would run that marathon in 2011 and I did it. I set the goal, then made it happen.

I am putting it out there that I have set the bar for myself AGAIN!

December 2013, I will run the Dallas Marathon again. Then in February of 2014 I will run my first Ultramarathon at the Cowtown in Fort Worth. April 2014 I will run the full 26.2 miles in Oklahoma City for the memorial.

This may not seem like much for some runners, for me and my body, this is a major challenge that I WILL finish.

I have started a new page for my friends and family to follow on FB that will be dedicated to this journey. Please run over and “LIKE” my page, share it with your friends. I’m sure I will be throwing in some of my weight loss journey as inspiration along the way.

The page can be found at:

Thanks everybody – I hope you enjoy the journey as much as I will.
