OMG. Look at me! (Read 1022 times)

    MSN.com Scroll down to the Health and Fitness section. That's me. Shocked Talk about surreal and a bit scary! I knew it would be on MSN, but I never thought it would be on the home page!

    I've got a fever...

      WOW! That's awesome! Big grin

      On your deathbed, you won't wish that you'd spent more time at the office.  But you will wish that you'd spent more time running.  Because if you had, you wouldn't be on your deathbed.

        Good for you. That's so awesome.
          Well done to you!!! you must be so proud of yourself and very brave to put yourself on the web. Congratulations - you are an inspiration Smile

            WOOOOOHOOOOOOOOOOO we got us a certified celeberty!!! WTG Callie on the weight loss as well as being on the front page of MSN!

            Your toughness is made up of equal parts persistence and experience. You don't so much outrun your opponents as outlast and outsmart them, and the toughest opponent of all is the one inside your head." - Joe Henderson

              That is so cool! You're famous!
                I need to apologize to Eric. Wink In the original version I mentioned Running Ahead. It along with a few other details apparently didn't make the final cut. But I tried!

                  That is so very awesome, Callie. Not just the being famous either - your accomplishments to get to the point of writing that story are even greater!

                  Passion is a rather frightening thing because if you have passion you don't know where it will take you.

                   

                  When it’s all said and done, will you have said more than you’ve done?

                    What a great story! I've seen you posting here on RA, but I never knew about your dramatic weight loss.

                      Wow! You are incredible.

                        What an inspiration and a sub 4hr marathon to boot!
                        Run like you are on fire! 5K goal 24:00 or less (PR 24:34) 10K goal 50:00 or less (PR 52:45) HM goal 1:55:00 or less (PR 2:03:02) Marathon Goal...Less than my PR (PR 4:33:23)
                          Callie that is incredible. I love how not only did you prove you could run a marathon, you did it in under 4 hours, something that not even all people who believe themselves to be athletic can do. Amazing.

                            Needs more cowbell!

                              I'm speechless (this is rare...enjoy it! Wink ). Girl, your story is simply amazing! Your before and after photos don't even look like the same person! You are proof positive that hard work can yield amazing results. I hope you are half as proud of yourself as I am of you. I have only lost 60#s (well, more like 50 right now...dammit if hitting goal and staying there aren't tough)...I know first-hand what a battle weight is. I'm still fighting every day. You are such an inspiration! Big grin k

                              • 2 olympic distance duathlons -- 6 days apart -- PR at least 1

                              • 130#s (and stay there, gotdammit!)

                                That is totally cool. Smile Congrats!
