I am not really sure why, but it JUST really sunk in that in about 16.5 hours, I will be hopping in my car and heading to Champaign, IL to run my 4th Half-Marathon!  But that isn’t even the best part.  Not only are there at least 41 other HRRWC members and friends going to be there, but friends from all over the country from the Biggest Loser Club and the Novo Wellness Community( will also be there!  So excited to see everyone!  And watch some people finish their FIRST 5k!  The road to fitness is sometimes a LONG one, but to get to witness someone on their journey first hand is a gift.  I am so blessed to be a part of not only getting to witness these moments, but to be part of them, and in a few cases, even be part of the inspiration that got that person to the starting line to begin with:)

Life is GOOD!  Live it to the fullest!  Never pass up a chance to love or be loved.  And…My Friends…I LOVE You ALL!  Thank you for making my journey brighter every day:)


  1. 🙂 Great blog! You’re going to do great- all of the Quincy folks are- I can just tell. I don’t know about you, but I’m having trouble deciding what to wear with the weather forecast they keep giving. Sheesh! How’s a girl supposed to dress when they change the forecast every ten minutes? I’ll have to bring something for every kind of weather… I’m sure Doug will laugh at me for overpacking…

    Anyway- C-U there 🙂


    1. I know what you mean! I have packed twice now, and I think I am just taking it ALL! LOL! Thank goodness we aren’t flying:P
