Yesterday I celebrated my 44th year on this beautiful planet.
At 44, I also decided to resume my love of running and join a local women's running club. I trained myself last summer 2009 for a half marathon, but due to a knee injury sustained from over training, I had to sit it out. I was overzealous and riding my brother's marathon rainbow as I tried to jump from one 5 K to a half-marathon in 4 months. I was also 30 pounds more last summer which also attributed to a knee injury. Currently, I am now back to my goal weight of 4 years ago of 108 lbs at 5'2" where I have lost a total of 41 pounds since February 2009. I am feeling healthy and strong, and I am healthy and STRONG at 44!
At 44, I thank God for my weight loss, the ability to run, ability to hike, ability to backpack, and the ability to wake up and enjoy these things with a healthy body. At 44, I feel and I am fit, fabulous, healthy, and more athletic than I have ever been in my life. I say I'm 44, but I do not feel my age.
My restrictions are not based on my age, but the restrictions that I put on myself. I hope to keep those restrictions away and accomplish what I wnat to accomplish.
