This is my world – life, faith, family and running!
My name is Sarah, I’m the author of How My World Runs. I am 38, married for 18 years. We have one daughter. I started this blog for myself, a place to write how I lost weight and started running, it turned into something I love!
We have 2 dogs, you’ll see snippets of them here from time to time. Our daughter, Ally, runs with me some and she just started running track and plays softball. We are involved in our town and church. I am a believer in Christ, my family as well. I believe that fitness is a part of faith. That God intended for me to be healthy and to be an example to those around me.
I have crazy, naturally curly hair. I have not worn it curly since about 1993 or so. I straightened it all the time. Last May I finally decided to give the curls a try. I tried some different products, read a few blogs to get some tips and I’m slowly starting to like it. It’s certainly easier that straightening it all the time and much healthier for my hair.
I started running in September 2011 after walking off 30 pounds. I ran off the last 10 or so. I never thought at my age that I’d have something to be this proud of. I run to set an example for my daughter. I run for my health. I run to compete against my old self, the out of shape self, to prove to her that I don’t have to be her anymore.
Here are two of my posts about how I started this jouring.
I can’t believe I’m posting this picture, but here I am October 2010, 40 plus pounds over weight. Sadly this picture wasn’t enough to get me active until June 2011.
Here I am November 2011, down 3 sizes and probably 30 pounds.
And March 2012, down 42 pounds!
December 24, 2012, keeping it off!
Join me on my journey. I hope to encourage you and learn something along the way!
Let us run with endurance the race God has set before us. Hebrews 12:1
