MJ Reimers

I am a married 46 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 lost 45 lbs. with the support of family, friends and this community. I am into my second year of maintenance.

My Goals:
1. Maintain my weight loss.
2. To complete a run every month, except December and January in 2014.
3. To share the running experience with family and friends.

My Program:
Eat smart and log my food daily and walk everyday. I recently became an avid runner and run at least three times a week. I've ran a 5K and a 10K. I ran my first 1/2 marathon with a sub 2 hour time, so I guess it's official now.

Personal Information:
I love horses! I've rode and trained them for over 30 years. I've also taught therapy dog classes for 10 years. I guess I'm an "all around" educator.

Other Information:
Mom of four kids ages 13-18. I am 5'8" and try maintain my weight between 135-140 lbs. I can honestly say that I am fitter now than when I got married in my 20's.

Thank you for commenting on my new addition...I'm loving that little girl more and more each day. Yes, she is part Schnauzer and some Terrier. Really long legs on this girl. LOL!

Thanks for the comment on my blog and also for the party hat goodie. Yes, in June it will be ten years since I had surgery and ovarian cancer was discovered. Since we had a visiting GYN doctor out here this past week I decided to have my visit now. I'm not a coffee drinker but I'll accept a cup of tea!

Have a good week!!

I had a good race. Not fast, by any mean, since mostly I've been walking this winter and not running . I use a walk/run/walk method of running and I started off running 3 minutes and walking one minute. After 3 or 4 cycles of that with pretty sore legs I changed to a 2 minute run/1 minute walk and finished much stronger. I finished the race in 38 minutes.

I graduated from Creighton University School of Pharmacy and there was a pharmacy student who died during his pharmacy school days. Another student who was studying in Occupational Therapy also passed away as a student. Today was the 17th Annual Sherman Steichen Memorial 5k & 10k runs and I ran it last year as my first 10k and this year for the 5k. I feel that it's for a good cause as they were both Creighton students. Their families usually come to the race in their memory.
