Half-Marathon, Here I Come!

Below is my introduction from a year ago when I joined Spark and changed my life. The title above will remain because it was a huge goal that I finally accomplished in October 2011.

I came up short of my 50 pound weight loss goal by about 14 pounds. I was going so strong and had an amazing summer, but I fell apart after my race and surgery this past fall.

So now I'm back. I've readjusted my weight-loss goal, now in pursuit of losing the last 14 plus some more! I also ...

I came up short of my 50 pound weight loss goal by about 14 pounds. I was going so strong and had an amazing summer, but I fell apart after my race and surgery this past fall.

So now I'm back. I've readjusted my weight-loss goal, now in pursuit of losing the last 14 plus some more! I also have my sights set on another half-marathon. I know that with your help and support I can do it.

Here we go....

(Original post--4/18/2011) I'm a 33 year old mother of amazing twin girls (15 months) and have been in an exercise rut, or rather stall pattern, since I was 4-months pregnant. I've been unhappy with my appearance and feel lousy. I am ready to drop the weight and start running again. I have 2 major goals--run my first half-marathon in October and drop 50 pounds by next April. Here I go!

"I often hear people say, 'I'm not a real runner.' We are all runners, some just run faster than others, that's all. I have never met a fake runner." --Bart Yasso, Runner's World Chief Running Officer and author of My Life on the Run

At various times in our life we have to push through obstacles to get where we want
to be, and rise above circumstances in order to grow. The difference between those
who succeed, and those who succeed gloriously is the way in which we are able to
turn our weakest attributes into our greatest strengths.

Be strong and conquer your weaknesses with dedication, passion and heart •¨¯`💕 emoticon

Let today be the day you embrace your beautiful spirit and shine a light for those living in the
dark. Light their path so the road traveled will be seen more clearly. A person whose heart
is saddened by the troubles of this world, the loss of a friend or family member, a hard days
work, or the struggle of provision can experience joy through a simple act of kindness. Be
that candle for someone today and shine bright. -Amaka Imani Nkosazana 💕
