Hi everyone!
Two years ago, on a cold morning I weighted about 300 lbs and stood along the side of numerous roads in Gainesville as I watched 1000s of people complete the Five Points of Life Half and Full Marathon.

Inside I was intrigued by this whole new world I was viewing and really wanted to be a part of it. Thank you to all of those runners for motivating me to get moving (especially my mentor and friend, Carly Asse).
