My Goal:
If you don't like what you're getting, look at what you're giving.

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

To get what you once had, you must do what you once did.

About me:
Trying to get by one day at a time! I started running from scratch in March 2009 using the Beginning Running Program in the Runnersworld website after having baby #4. I'm married, 41 years old and have four sons: 16 , 6, 4, and a 1 year old.

Diets I like:
None! There is no diet, there is only eating sensibly and nutritiously. Anything else is a big lie!

Workout of choice:
Running, spinning (indoor cycling), swimming, heavy weight lifting, elliptical, horseback riding, pilates. In the future hopefully: running lots of half marathons! Eventually train for a full marathon

My plan:
1. To follow a half marathon training program. 2. Track and measure everything I eat daily. 3. Log all my workouts on Runner's World and Peertrainer. 4. Try each day to be stronger, faster, healthier.

I need the most help with:
Learning how to snack smarter, train more efficiently and safely for my runs. Trying to build lots of muscle without bulking up or overtraining. Increasing my distance safely! Patience with myself and give myself the time I need to heal before working out again! I also need to fine tune my caloric needs so I can perform in my runs but not gain weight. Not be so hard on myself and have fun along the way!
