Healthy, Happy, Maintaining.

Hi - I'm Emily!

I also began running about half-way through my weight-loss journey (really - running - me - the one who "can't" run. Hah!), and in March of 2013 I got talked into my first triathlon... let's just call it an addiction. I've completed 3 sprint tri's so far, and plan to do an Olympic distance tri in 2014!

Just cruising through leaving everyone with some motivational thoughts for today:
