This is just me trying to get back in shape and lose a little weight in the process. I feel very weird being the weight that I am. I may not be big, but I just dont feel like myself anymore!

May 3rd, 2009 my friend Erin and I ran the Potomac River Run Half Marathon. We did this in memory of Mike Pennington and Griffin Prentice. I would also like to mention, that though I did not know them I am also running for the memories of a few friends of one of my friends on Spark; Janet, Trey, Robert and Joey. They lost their lives to suicide. As this hit very close to home for us we want to raise money for the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP) and raise awareness in hopes that these tragedies can be prevented.

The AFSP is a non-profit organization dedicated to understanding and preventing suicide through research, education and advocacy, and to reaching out to people with mood disorders and those impacted by suicide.

If you would like more information on our run you can visit

For more information on suicide and suicide prevention, please visit www.afsp.org

Hold on, if you feel like letting go
Hold on, it gets better than you know
Don't stop looking you're one step closer
Don't stop searching it's not over
Hold on
- Good Charlotte

"In running, it doesn't matter whether you come in first, in the middle of the pack, or last. You can say, 'I have finished.' There is a lot of satisfaction in that."
-Fred Lebow

    Congratulations! I didn't know you had a baby. I've been off of SP for over a year.

    I've been doing great since I came back, staying on track with diet and exercise. I'm surprising myself by how well I have been sticking with it.

    Hi! What got me back into it was that the play was coming to our area. We wer going to go then I got menengitus...So, we couldn't. So, then I started listening to it on line and stuff. Sadly, with 4 kids and my husband is the only one wroking, I can't justify buying it..it's soooo expensive. I have not seen the movie though. Im afraid I'd be disappointed
