Another year upon did that happen?  It blows my mind to think that my journey began 5 years ago now.  To think that, at the time, I felt as though I would never get there.  Losing so much weight felt like an impossibility.  Luckily, something deep down in me decided to give it a shot anyhow.  18 months later I hit a 90 lb weight loss, and I've maintained it ever since (with the exception of 5-10 winter/holiday pounds each year...I know I'm not alone in that!!). 

This year will be a big one for for, and hopefully completing my first full marathon. 26.2 miles that for 30 years of my life, I never imagined doing or even wanting to do. 26.2 miles that, for the last 3 years, I've been dying to do but holding off on while I was in grad school.  Now, I'm just a little more than a month from my official start of training.  Yep...I'm a little scared.  But I'm ready to prove myself to...myself.

Other goals for 2016, aside from training successfully and crossing the finish line of the marathon:

Get back into shape the next couple months leading into training...including getting stronger and shedding a few holiday  pounds.

Sub-25 minute 5k in August

Drink more water

Be more active as a family, with my husband and kids all together.  Bike rides, walks, jogs, tennis, swimming, running in the back yard. long as it gets us moving, together. 

And finally....Update blog more frequently...HA!!
