Hi! I live in Albuquerque, NM and have found a love for running. I'm 39 (close to 40!) and a single mom. I've always "wanted" to run but never really put forth any effort, except when I was in high school and I didn't really try. Since starting the c25k app I have found that you CAN do things you set your mind to! I started Weight Watchers in February and started really working out on the elliptical. I then gave the treadmill a try and a friend introduced me to the app. The first week I thought i was going to die! Between week 5 and 6 I had to take a two week rest due to my left knee. I just recently finished week 6 and participated in the Ultimate Gladiator Dash. It was my first 5k/obstacle course. It was a struggle at times but I completed and felt great afterwards! I am currently signed up for the UV Color Dash 5k and the Rebel Donut Dash 5k. I am also wanting to sign up for the NMX Living Dead Fun as Hell 5k in late September!! In the process of all of this, while eating healthy, I've lost around 33 lbs. I still have a ways to go but I am feeling so much better and I'm so excited to feel the way I do. Many others have also noticed the change. I am determined to see this through - the running and losing of weight!

I have been an inspiration to friends with helping to plan healthy lunches and also to makes sure we are accountable to each other with our goals. Having a workout buddy is also a great way for me to stay motivated and keep at it! Can't wait to see what everyone has to share Dream Big!!!
