Deb

I am here to recharge myself again with my running, my healthy eating and just hope to make a few new friends along the way.

I ran a marathon 2 1/2 years ago and it was the most wonderful and life changing thing I have ever done. I didn't finish how I wanted, so I am hoping to change that and possibly this year.

I have much to do and change in my habits to get ready for that. Starting with my daily exercise. And my mantra is "I will not give up".

Thank you so much for your note on my page - very grateful for the thought. I expected to be full of energy today - start of a new week and a new month and all that. Sadly it's not the case tho I'm sure I'll be back on top soon - just need a bit of normality back I guess.
Happy to see you're forging forward - certainly hope to join you!!
Talk soon . . . BIG emoticon

You rock lady! Thanks for the support on my blog :) I too occasionally make my own wine, mead, beer, cider, ands cordials. Hoping for my grapevines to produce enough this year for me to make some from scratch! I'll be here to cheer you as well :)

Thank you so much for your very supportive comment on my blog - you endlessly find encouragement for me and I'm really grateful. This week is going to be tough, frankly, but I'll get through it and plough on when it's over. You're right when you say we have incentive through not letting each other down - Spark support - and especially yours - is keeping me going and making me try harder right now.
Thank you Debra - I have your back too and together we WILL get there.
