My Program:
I run 5 days per week with yoga tossed in. I have become addicted to running, it is my passion and helps me keep my sanity!
I try to track my food as often as possible and I also watch my diet pretty closely. I have stopped focusing so much on the scale. I am tired of being held hostage and letting it determine my day.

Personal Information:
I live in Florida with my husband , 5 children and our dog, Lucy. I love to spend time with my family. We enjoy camping together and enjoying the beautiful Gulf of Mexico. I also love to read when I have the time. I am a working Mom who has finally decided to do something for myself!


Other Information:
I can. I will.

"Somewhere in the world someone is training when you are not. When you race him, he will win." -Tom Fleming's Boston Marathon Training Motto

"The music of a marathon is a powerful strain, one of those tunes of glory. It asks us to forsake pleasures, to discipline the body, to find courage, to renew faith and to become one's own person, utterly and completely." -George Sheehan

" It is never too late to be who you might have been."
