After weighing in at 350lbs on April 26th, 2011, I decided enough was enough.  I started weight watchers and began to get active.  I slowly started walking, which progress into running.  I fell in love with running!!  This past May I completed my first ever 1/2 marathon, and also participated as part of a relay team for the Akron marathon.  I loved my experience as part of the relay team, so decided to make Akron my first  ever full marathon!  After losing over 1/2 of me (over 180lbs) I look forward to running the streets of Akron!

I also am excited to report that I was featured in People Magazine\'s 1/2 my size edition!
