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.

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.

I am not a "perfect person". emoticon
My hair "doesn't always" stay in place, emoticon
and I "spill" things a lot. emoticon emoticon
I am "pretty clumsy" emoticon
and sometimes I have a "broken heart", emoticon
"My friends" & I sometimes "fight", emoticon
and maybe some days "nothing" goes right. emoticon
But when I think "about it" and take a "step back", emoticon
I remember how "amazing life" truly is, emoticon emoticon
and that maybe, just maybe, I like being "unperfect". emoticon emoticon

Hope you have a sensational Saturday, and a super Sunday!!!

Forgive those who insult you, attack you,
belittle you, or take you for granted.

But more than this...
forgive yourself for allowing them to hurt you.

Have a truly thankful Thursday!
