15 March '14 - Thanks to a plant strong lifestyle with lots of green juices and whole freggies with NO dairy, NO gluten and very little animal products, I have lost 75 lbs since my that last entry below. I am stronger and have more energy and feel more ALIVE than I have in at least ten years. Look out world; I'm BACK! 2014 is going to ROCK!

17 Aug '13 - I'm over 50, fatter and weaker than I've ever been or dreamed of being. I have to go all out with no reservations one time because I won't last long if something doesn't change in a big way. No dithering over whether I will be able to have this or that because living and feeling alive are more important than ANYTHING I put in my mouth.

I think its WAY more important to ENJOY the race than to run it! The issue with running is that quite often the excitement and energy of the crowd encourages you to run too fast and you run out of energy before the end of the race. Much better to go a nice steady pace and finish loving the experience!! emoticon

You will have so much fun at the race with your daughters, that you forget that you were scared in the first place.
In my experience, I never ran the entire way in 'fun' races because everyone is just having so much fun, that you want to pause and take it all in!
Besides these races are filled with walkers!

Just go and HAVE FUN!!!

Will be routing for you.

You are too kind! You've already made great progress! Embrace it and know you can do this. I suggest you walk/run and focus on the finish. THAT is a victory! Be safe, stay focused, and rock this thing! You are not alone!
