Love2Run Love2Run Hi! I'm Sharon and I started running after I had my son at the age of 35. Moving to the Florida area, I invested in a jogging stroller and ran for hours along the Bay. I ran my first Race,
The Gasparilla Classic Long Distance 15K and ever since got the Running Bug. I have met so many runners and at that time, mother's with children and jogging strollers. I ran my first Marathon, Gulf Beaches and did the best time ever. I was 9 minutes from qualifying for the ...
Love2Run Love2Run Hi! I'm Sharon and I started running after I had my son at the age of 35. Moving to the Florida area, I invested in a jogging stroller and ran for hours along the Bay. I ran my first Race,
The Gasparilla Classic Long Distance 15K and ever since got the Running Bug. I have met so many runners and at that time, mother's with children and jogging strollers. I ran my first Marathon, Gulf Beaches and did the best time ever. I was 9 minutes from qualifying for the Boston Marathon. I have a one time goal to run that, hopefully 2012. 2011 has been an unusual year for me, very challanging as I'm sure with everyone.
I am so Happy that my friend told me about SparkPeople. All of the tools have really motivated me and kept me on track.
Keep on Sparking! It's my way of LIFE and I Love it!!

Update 5/2014: A few years ago I had surgery and have not gotten back to Long Distance Running. Last year I started training for a 10 K and got sick in September 2013 for two months. By the time I was well again it was too cold for this Florida Gal, now here in NC. I have been walking and doing some running. I also have been doing lots of Cardio DVD's and Weight Training. I still have my goals to get back to running. Determination= Victory!

Love is patient, love is kind.
It does not envy, it does not boast,
It is not proud. It does not dishonor others,
It is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered,
It keeps no record of wrongs.
Love does not delight in evil
but rejoices with the truth.
It always protects, always trusts,
always hopes, always perseveres.
Love never fails.
- Corinthians 13:4-8
Hope you are having a wonderful weekend.
