Well, I am back. . . again.

It has been a few years and I am ready to take control! This site helped me lose 30 pounds several years ago - took at least two to make it happen and I have gained back 15 of those pounds. Time to put on the brakes.

I am heading toward 66 this year and I just want to be the healthiest that I can be. Losing the weight will be a huge help - it will keep my knees, hips and ankles happy as I continue to run marathons, halfs, 5K and 10K's. And of course I want to add new challenges - maybe a longer run and a Sprint Tri. Need to start revisiting my food and fitness.

I lost my oldest sister (by 1 year and 16 days) to esophageal cancer in December 2016 and went through 2 scans recently to determine my issues - no cancer, but, some inflammation that I am currently taking medication for - goal is to get off meds as quickly as possible.

I am active - I run, bike and hike (when possible)! Love running and know that I need to add back in strength training. So, here I am - ready to be accountable!

My Goals:
Be aware of what I am doing that sabotages my good intentions-journal daily using the Daily Notes on my nutrition tracker.
Add strength and yoga to my training beginning 3/12/17
Complete a marathon in less than 6:00 hours
Complete my long runs weekly!
Keep streaking with a minimum of 1 mile per day of walking or running.

My Program:
Run club Tuesday/Thursday and Saturdays unless I am racing or volunteering - and then I have to find a way to fit in my long miles.
Hard Core Burn workout - Mondays - excellent core workout with my PT

Personal Information:
Staying active keeps me mentally happy and healthy. My goal is to inspire my great nieces and nephews to make a healthy lifestyle a part of their lives!
