The only way you'll strip away the fat is to start by stripping away the excuses!

The title of this sparkpage is my daily motto. I am a married full time working mom, and I can always come up with 100 excuses not to work out on any given day!

Over the summer of 2009, I started the Couch to 5K running program, and have challenged myself over and over. I soon began spinning classes and riding outdoors, and began swimming. Now I am into Triathlons!

Races done so far:
Peapod 5K 8/22/09
Midtown Fun and Run 5K 9/26/09

Hi,
I'm trying to get back to some of the more positive stuff inmy life.
Currently job hunting and spending a lot of time trying to get my unemployment approved and figure out what money they still owe me. How are you feeling?

I haven't chatted with you in a while....how are you.

Things are still crummy here, but it is life and I know once the reality of it sets in, I will be able to move forward...but for the time being, I am stuck with anger.

I am running a lot with my half coming up in about 4.5 weeks...and strength training as well.

CHat soon...miss you!

You asked when I'm doing my next half marathon. . . well, I just joined the SP group to say I go the distance, but I actually create my own half marathon routes. I google map a bunch of routes near where I live that equal 13.1 miles, and then do them - 1 per month. What I am doing for cardio since joining SP is walk/jog 16 miles/week.

In reality, I have completed only 1 official, timed half marathon in 2006 to support a blood bank in my area. Now that I can walk/jog instead of only walk, I am thinking of signing up for that one in July again. I'd love to do another Team In Training event (I trained to WALK the FULL Seattle Marathon with them in 2006 but sprained my ankle badly 1 week prior to the event so never did it), but I just don't have the gumption to fundraise at that level right now.
