Just read over my page since a new year is upon us!! My statement below could not be more true!! One giant goal for me that I accomplished was a Half MArathon!!

Decided to update this page and bring in a new year(2012) with a renewed determination!!
I want this to be the year of change for the better~better health, better fitness and a better weight and like my title page says I've got to be "Willling to Work" I titled this page back in 2008 when I originally joined~it couldn't be more true today then way back then!! So here's to a great year with Spark!

Some of my favorite quotes:
"Run when you can, walk when you have to, crawl if you must, just never give up." Dean Karnazes I LOVE this quote!

"For everyone who thought I couldn't do it...
For everyone who said I shouldn't do it..
For everyone who said I didn't have it in me...
See ya at the finish line!" (this was from Coach Nancy)

"There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as if everything is."

"There isn't an obstacle big enough or strong enough that won't budge, if we just keep pushing it long enough..."

It is NEVER too late to become what you might have been!" - George Eliot

To get something you've never had you must do something you've never done."


"The great dividing line between success and failure can be expressed in five words: 'I did not have time.'"
-Franklin Field

My Goals:
"YOU CAN ACHIEVE RESULTS OR YOU CAN MAKE EXCUSES, BUT YOU CAN'T DO BOTH!"

Perseverance~ "Don't quit before the Blessing"

Nutrition is such an important part of the weight loss equation and should be taken just as serious, if not more so than exercise~ Jensfitjourney

During the raceI I was wondering why I had chosen to do this, but the moment I crossed that finish line I knew why.


My Program:



Personal Information:
My name is Rose I'm from N/W Pennsylvania 2 hours from Pittsburgh!
I have 3 children, 2 sons married and my daughter is in Grad school at NC State! My husband and I live on a 90 acre farm and raise sheep! He also has bees and a few chickens!! I started back to work seasonally after my kids were grown~I was a stay at home MOM and loved it!!
I am A Grandma now so even more reason to get fit!!


Other Information:
Favorite read right now:
No Need For Speed~ John Bingman & Running For Mortals"
"The Spark"


Still, there's no denying that healthy runners will race about two seconds per mile faster for every pound they lose.
