26.2 Sassy project! Diamond Strong!

What a difference two years makes, thanks to Sparkpeople.

This girl is on a new mission to complete her first full marathon this fall in Richmond Va. Just two years ago I was telling everyone, how I did not want to be fat and 50! Since than I have lost 120 pounds!

This girl is on a new mission to complete her first full marathon this fall in Richmond Va. Just two years ago I was telling everyone, how I did not want to be fat and 50! Since than I have lost 120 pounds!

I started running 2 years ago, when I started, I truly can say I did not think I would ever accomplish running down the block. I could hardly even run a minute without thinking I would pass out! I kept plugging away, and 6 months later I successfully completed my first 5 k.

I never looked back I went on to do several more 5ks, 10ks, a half marathon. The future includes another half next weekend several more 5 ks are already booked. Even more exciting was the Asheville Marathon wrote an article about me, being a bubbly person on the local running scene!

The BIG one 26.2 a full marathon is signed up for and on the books for November 15, 2014! Let the 26.2/Sassy project begin! I am so excited, So stay tuned as the 26.2/Sassy project evolves! Hoping to lose those last 20 pounds during this training!

Thanks to all my Diamonds for being so inspiring, and my spark family for cheering me on Y'all Rock!

Sassy out!

Sassy, thank you for the motivating pep talk RE: keep on running. I can't wait to be able to run 5k without slowing to a power walk and once I can do that I just know anything is possible. I never let my age stop me from doing anything I want. Turning 62 this summer only made me more determined.
