Time to get back to work!

My name is James. I am a public school teacher in Texas. I have run 3 marathons and 4 half-marathons. I have been on SparkPeople for quite a while but got away from it. This past year has been a very trying one. They type of year that knocks you down and turns your world upside down. In the midst of it I lost alot of motivation and the will to improve. Although it is still difficult i am ready to get back in the saddle and get back on track!

James! It's so nice to see you! I've been away for a long long time - my sweet little Stephanie is now 8 months. I'm back to C25K with a 5K race in March. I'm happy to be running again, I've missed it - and our great team. You are doing great! Looking forward to chatting with you.

I ran the Rock n Roll San Antonio this past November and it was amazing. I was in awe of the huge crowds--both runners and spectators--and was inspired by all the different levels of runners out in the field. It was great! I'm hoping that my injury doesn't prevent me from running in Austin because I hear it's a great experience!

Welcome back James! It was great to see your post on my page. Are you still running? Any marathons in your future?
