MJ Reimers

I am a married 48 year old mother of four. As most moms, my kids are my life and I thoroughly cherish each day with them. I've taught special education for over 20 years and still enjoy going to work. I am maintaining a 35 lbs. loss with the support of family, friends and this community.

I have been running for about three years. In 2014 I ran 12 runs in 12 months. They included 7 half marathons, three 10k and two 5k runs. I was out with an injury for a while, but now I'm back ...

My Goals:
1. Maintain my weight loss.
2. Exercise for enjoyment, not competition.
3. To share the running experience with family and friends.

My Program:
Eat smart, log my food daily and MOVE. Maintain my streak of exercising 30 minutes a day as well, as my login streak.

Personal Information:
I love horses! I've rode and trained them for over 30 years. I've also taught therapy dog classes for 15 years. I guess I'm an "all around" educator.

Other Information:
Mom of four kids ages 15-20. I am 5'8" and try maintain my weight between 140-145 lbs. I can honestly say that I am fitter now than when I got married in my 20's.

Thank you for the kind words on my touchstone blog. I'm glad you haven't thrown in the towel. 5 miles at a time is remarkable when you have work and family responsibilities.

Eventually family takes care of themselves. Our 6 grandkids are 14-21. Eventually hectic work schedules turn into retirement and if you have maintained a good fitness level, there's a lot more time to train.

Also I wanted to share one more technology aid I've discovered - compression socks! I've always ignored them because they seemed like the stockings that nursing home patients use for poor circulation or water retention. But these are different (ankle length). I love them. My difficult feet love them. Any assistance to keep me on my feet and in the race, I will use.

Hang in there.
