There is no trophy for reaching a New Years Resolution, but there is great satisfaction in knowing I followed through with my commitment and now I am living a new lifestyle.

January 15, 2014 is my one year anniversary committing to a healthy weight and healthy. I lost 30 lbs this year, and I have been maintaining now for 18 weeks, and maintained successfully from Halloween to New Years. Thatís a biggie for me! Last year at this time, I threw myself into HIIT and Cardio on the treadmill to jumpstart my weight loss. Now I am regularly road running, racing, and training for my first HM! I did many firsts this past year, it has given me a new outlook, and I am pledging to continue my healthy lifestyle in 2014. I ran my first 5K (3 total), 4M(2), 5M, and 10K (2). My litmus test to being fit is I successfully completed the 8 mile turnaround, with a 635 ft climb, Rave Run up and down the Sabino Canyon Road, Tucson, just last week. I could not have done this a year ago when I started this journey. It was a great way to start the New Year.

Running is a passion for me now. I began road running, at age 52, in March of 2013, after walking for 2 years. I needed a challenge, a change, and a stress relief. Running does it all.

Maintenance here I am. I am here to stay!

Glad you liked my Olympic tri video blog! I saw the drone shadow, too. Cool technology for sure.

Thanks for the info on tapering. My race is 9/20 and yes, it has been awhile. Last Half was 2010. Yikes, where did the time go. I always ran with friends in FL and followed their training. I really appreciate it. Wishing you the best on your upcoming race..

Hi! My next race is the San Antonio Half Marathon on 7 December.

There are a lot of different ways to taper. My favorite it to cut way back on volume but maintain intensity, i.e. short but relatively fast runs. This allows me to recover without losing my mental edge. I'm sure you'll have a great race.

You'll have to tell me about your Chi Running Clinic some time. I'd like to hear about it.
