After a very long time I decided to return to Spark people. With the stress of being layed off from work and finding a new job it really took a toll on my body. Well that is over now! I started to take control of my life again and luckily meet a new neighbour that use to be a trainer for running room (store in Canada).
I am signed up for a half marathon on October 19th of this year and already doing 3 to 4 short runs a week (5kms) and 1 long run - working towards the final goal of 17kms. The actual 1/2 marathon is 21 kms and the way I am feeling I will accomplish this goal then sign up for a full marathon next year :)

I would like to invite all to my page who wht to get fit and feel motivated. I don't let the scale judge my happiness but rather how I feel and look in my jeans ;).

This year turning 49 in September next year the big 50 - and I will be the healthiest I have ever been.

My goal is to look and feel better than I ever did when i turn 45 this year.

Running, running and more running.

I am training for 1/2 marathon so short runs and 1 long run weekly while increasing my run walk ratio.

Personal Information:
I live in Whitby Ontario - 1 hour east of Toronto - live with my fantastic guy Brad for years now - we have 2 cats Georgie and Rambo, no children.

Other Information:
I enjoy cooking, working out - travelling is a must every year.
Huge movie fan and trivia buff.

I have always had a healthy lifestyle no smoking and not much of a drinker.

Really saw what is important in life after my nephew passed away 6 years ago from a rare disease at the age of 81/2 (the movie Lorenzo's Oil is about his disease ALD).

I meet my guy 3 years ago and he showed me how it really feels to be loved.
He is the sweetest my considerate man I have ever meet and I am very lucky to have him support me 100% in whatever I do.

    thanks for your comment about my blog. people can be awful, and I'm probably not the greatest person to say mean things to/ around because I'm not afraid to call people out.. hence the screen shots of the actual statements from girls. haha. I don't have much of a filter which may get in my way at some point in life, but no one will ever be able to say I'm not genuine!!

    Good for you for getting back to running and doing something you are passionate about. What will you do post half marathon?

    Ok I new there was no way you were turning 50. :)

    Thanks for the comment. I will make it a great day! Chicago visit went well other then the deep dish pizza and beers I drank. LOL We had a good time...the weather was a little humid, but one night there was a good breeze along the lake at least.

    Enjoy your run tonight!

    That's great your husband is leading the challenge on a roll. Hopefully he gets all the way to 30! Sounds like you have the training down for the 1/2. Do you enjoy running? I think you should write a new blog about your training for the 1/2. :) I'm off to Chicago for the rest of the week. Check in when I get back.
