Running has been one of the many things that has kept me sane in life and has taught me that I can over come any obstacle I put my mind to. I have been a Runner since January 2011 and kept a tally of my races under "My Goals" of my sparkpage, but as I went to enter a new race today, I found out I have run out of room. So while I will still post my "Future Races" under the goal area of my sparkpage, I do want to track my completed races, "my accomplishments" if you will, here.

Happy Sparking!!

    Athena - Happy to find another runner here at SP. Your list of accomplishments was impressive and motivating. Mastering the weight monster is a constant challenge, but I think your dedication to running shows that you have what it takes! Best wishes.

    You have completed so many races. Color runs are by far my most favorite to do. I have done 3 and want to do SO many more :]

    Well, color me embarrassed emoticon that I just now added you as a emoticon ! Since we "talk" on the GGs, I hadn't realized I missed that step, until I was going through my friends sending Goodies, and wondered "Where's Athena?" Hope you are looking forward to a great New Year! emoticon
    Blessed Be, Amanda emoticon
