Although I want to lose a few pounds, my main goal is to be healthy. I have always said I will not grow old gracefully, I will fight it every step of the way. I want to feel young physically and mentally as long as I can. Also I want to prevent as many health related issues as possible. The only way I know how to do that is through a healthy lifestyle, so that is what motivates me!

Although I had run some before, I got serious in the spring of 2012. I wanted to run a 5k, that was the goal. My goals have only got bigger from there! Now I'm hooked and proud to call myself a runner. My ultimate goal is to run the Chicago Marathon!

In November of 2014 I had my first running injury, a fracture in my left foot. This left me unable to run until spring. It was a very tough time for me, and I gave up on my goals for quite a while.

I'm trying to get back in shape, and feel like I'm starting from square one as a runner. It will take some time, but I would like to run another 10k in the fall of 2016. I will plan to run a 5k in the spring.



My running stats:

2012 Races:
9/15 Apple Festival Road Race 5k --- 35.39 minutes
10/7 Middlebury Walks for a Cure 5k ---- 33.18 minutes
11/22 Turkey Stampede 5k----37.20 minutes

8/17 Warrior Dash (Crawfordsville, IN)
11/28 Turkey Stampede 10k
