Now training for my THIRD half marathon!

I'm Heather. I'm 31 yrs old. I'm from Hampton, Va. I'm a single mom to 2 amazing little girls, who also happen to have special needs, but that just makes them more amazing. I've struggled with health issues for many years, which also means that I've struggled with my weight for a long time, but in the past couple of years I've started to get my health under control so my weight is getting there, too.

I'm Heather. I'm 31 yrs old. I'm from Hampton, Va. I'm a single mom to 2 amazing little girls, who also happen to have special needs, but that just makes them more amazing. I've struggled with health issues for many years, which also means that I've struggled with my weight for a long time, but in the past couple of years I've started to get my health under control so my weight is getting there, too. I started running the beginning of 2012, where I weighed over 220 lbs. I've lost quite a bit, and I've changed my life a lot because of running. It's not just an activity, it's a lifestyle, I think. I completed my first race, the Shamrock 8k in March 2012, and not even 6 months later completed my first half marathon, the Rock n Roll Half Marathon in September. Since then I've completed another half, returning to Shamrock this past March for the half. I am now training for my third half marathon in March. And I hope to eventually do a full marathon!
