Today’s lead leg run: 4.10 mi/35 min; 20 min core. I.am.lazy.today. And hungry. But what’s new?

Enough about me- here she is- our HAUTE MAMA of the week!! Say hi to KADEE!!!

“My inspiration is my family. I watched my dad fighting the effects of obesity, in and out of the hospital and fighting for life. Preaching at him I turned the mirror on myself and quickly realized that here I was at the heaviest weight of my life, only a few pounds shy of my pregnancy weight with Mackenzie… I gained close to 90lbs.  This was not the mom that I wanted my children to have, the wife I wanted to be, or the woman that I knew I could be.  So I started walking in September 2009.”

“In keeping with my new found healthier lifestyle Trey (my son) joined his school’s runner’s club. That was funny, not one lap around the playground and the huffing and puffing began, not asthmatic son…me.  So each day I ran.
I have entered a couple of 5k’s and am currently entered in the “Race for the Cure” and am hoping to finish my first 1/2 marathon in March.”
Here is part of her course:

“I run every other day for 30-45minute with 5 min warm up and cool down… I recently reached my farthest distance 5.5 miles. I am able  to run for an hour without huffing and puffing. lol We are in our  second year of runner’s club, and I have completed 2 5k’s.”
“This is such a great way for me to clear my head and get back in touch with God and  inner strength that he gives me.  I want to be a strong, healthy influence for both of my children, but feel that for Mackenzie (13) it is especially important for her to know that as a woman you can be strong and accomplish her goals.  Now life isn’t passing me by, I am  actively participating…and happy to say that now 40+ lbs lighter! Next Sunday 6.5 miles.”
