My Goals:
I joined SP several years ago when I was approaching the BIG FIVE-O, with a goal of becoming healthier. I've learned there is no end point to that goal and I continually strive for a healthier lifestyle.

My Program:
First and foremost - LOG

Stay positive

Listen to both my mind and body equally

Did a Whole30 in June 2014, now eating mostly paleo and loving it

Personal Information:
I'm a 55 year-old retiree, who found a new passion in running only a few years ago. I hope I can continue to nurture that passion, even if it means changing the way I do it. I've been married for 30 years to a wonderful man who gave me three amazing step-children and seven grandchildren.

Other Information:
Currently maintaining weight, recovering from two ankle and one knee surgery in 2013 - along with a rather traumatic bowel resection in January 2014. Getting back into strength training and running in 2014 and loving the feeling of getting stronger again.

I'm running with my eldest DD. She did her first half last year - we did it together. I'm DEFINITELY running intervals - whatever she wants to run although I will suggest 30/30 to her.
I did 26 miles last Saturday, so my 'race' will be very slow.

Thank you for the information! I have read and seen these CRX tights. I am waiting until I am closer to my goal weight before I buy them. My current running capri's are baggy in the butt because I bought them about 10 months and 50 pounds ago, BUT they are the best material! I look forward to treating myself to a pair of CRX capris or leggings once I reach my goal weight!

Again, thanks for the info!

Have a great week.

Amy

Hi! I along with new running shoes (the same ones as last year, Saucony Omni 13) I bough compression socks. Boy, do I look like a dorky runner now. I was told they could help with the shin splint. I am hoping so! Have you ever used compression socks?

Happy Sunday!

Best,

Amy emoticon emoticon emoticon

No reintroduction. I had a few glasses of wine, and then right back to Whole30. At least for a while longer.

Well, you're a heck of a lot faster than I am!

I do have a small meniscus tear in my right knee, but it's not much of a problem. I'm starting to think I have a matched set. That would be a mess.
