Well my fellow sparklettes...in a little over 12 hours I'll be pounding the pavement with my BFF towards the 26mile marker in the BMO Okanagan Marathon! WoW! I can't believe it! 3 years ago this time I was over 200lbs and had just begun my weightloss journey; and 2 years ago this time I ran in my first 1/2 Marathon-the same event I'll be running in tomorrow only this year it's a FULL Marathon. I had never in a million years A: Thought I'd ever become obsese B:Thought I'd then be able to lose the weight and C:Run!
Sparkpeople saved me from dying. Sparkpeople taught me to keep trying. Sparkpeople convinced me that it's never too late to be what I might have been!
I'll let ya's know how the run goes.
CHEERS and hugs to you all,
