NEXT: Maintenance and enjoying my new healthy lifestyle and body! Goals are now to keep improving - to run longer and faster, and to be stronger! I love training for new challenges!

Other Information:
Commitment is the key to anything worthwhile...if it's not important enough to commit, it won't happen.

Back in December 2012 when I made the commitment to get serious about this health thing, I didn't really know what it would take, but I made it a priority and stuck with it!

Thank you for your comments on my hike blog. I too am really glad I have Marv to go with to enjoy nature as I am not sure I would go alone and it is hard to find people to go with. Have a Fabulous Friday. emoticon emoticon

Hi Alie! emoticon
Thanks for the good wishes on my Special A Day! I did have an emoticon day thanks to my wonderful team mates!
Am off for a surprise holiday tomorrow - camping for a week in Cornwall. We are hoping to do lots of walking and cycling and are hoping it doesn't snow!
Will have to track my miles and LTGL points on paper but will be back before the end of Friday so will catch up with posting then.
have an AWESOME week
