Updated March 2017.

Been a member since 2009 but more active in the past year and a half. After losing weight (50 pounds) as a result of a severe depression in 2014, got healthier mentally and managed to gain the weight back, and then some. It's a bit discouraging so trying to find my way back to a more comfortable body that can do the things I like to do -- being outside, walking, hiking. Trying new things this year such as trail running.

Also trying to live each day fully. Too many close to me have/are ill so work on gratitude as part of my program.

    Betsy,
    Thanks for stopping by my Half Marathon blog. Yeah, I was a little annoyed about the 3:00 pacer, but moving on. If I was really concerned about it, I should have been paying closer attention or trained better - LOL. Now to get back on track! But my girls still waited for me and that Mimosa tasted so good after!
