              SD Safari Park Half Marathon

               

              This picture was taken about 2 weeks ago at the Safari Park Half Marathon in San Diego. I am now about 125 lbs and in great health (not to mention completely sober for 3 1/2 years!!). I am so grateful that running has given me this new way of life. It's pretty freakin epic. I'm currently doing a 90 Day Body Overhaul to get in even better shape - I'm chasing that ever elusive ab definition. Wink

                Wow.  Just wow.  When I need to remember how great running is, this is where I come.

                2013 Goals: Run more. Smile while I do it. Complete 2 marathons in a year. (1 down, 1 to go)

                  This is me during my first marathon in 2010:

                   

                   

                  From one of my marathons last month:

                   

                   

                  Ironically, I have not much (less than 5lbs) between one and the other but I have lost from a Size 12 (2010) to a Size 6.  I cannot complain.

                        Edit: I forgot to mention that I gained 40 lbs and got "old"  in the years in-between these two photos. I woke up one day at age 52 and decided to get off my butt and do something about it. I weigh exactly same now at 58 as I did in the 1986 photo, and wear the same waist-size pants again.
