In Summer of 2008 I weight just over 200 pounds. I'd spent the winter and spring losing the first 77 pounds walking and using the trampoline. Now at a plateau, I decided I had to ramp it up yet again and went out for my first jog/ walk since the 7th grade.

A year later I weighed 150, 10 pounds below my max healthy BMI. I decided to run a half marathon. I finished in 1:51. It was the first race I'd ever run.

I shook my head and stamped my feet every time someone suggested I might go on to do a full marathon, but when I crossed the finish line in Santa Rosa I realized I'd caught the bug. During my training for Redding Marathon in January I realized that not only had I caught the bug, but I wanted to give it to others as well.

I got certified as a personal trainer in December.

I completed Redding Marathon on January 16 at a time of 3:58.

I became a run coach and coached run groups couch to 10K and several hundred pounds of weight lost.

In July I ran my second marathon, San Francisco. For a time of 3:39:49.
I qualified for Boston. And registered for the Boston Marathon in October.

In December I am running CIM and bringing my very first run client with me. Next year, 4 days before my birthday, I am running my first ultra. A 50K in Pacifica.

I have lost and maintained no less than 130 pounds.

There's more about my journey on my blog,

Dreams are just Plans for which no goals have yet been set. Reality is just the dream of someone who's goals have been achieved.
