WHAT A WOMAN!!!


Okay, so I've been meaning to post this for awhile now and finally am getting to it. This is my friend Lynn Kimpel, who in this picture just finished running the PF Chang Half Marathon! You go girl! All I can say is "WHAT A WOMAN!" She finished in awesome time - 2 hours and 4 min!
I ran a 10k in November, and that about killed me, so I am so proud of her. This was her first half marathon and she ran in like a pro! I mean, can you believe that time? She really motivates me to work harder and do better. Currently she's doing a "no-sugar" fast for 30 days.......yes, I said 30 days!! I can hardly wait 30 minutes! :-) And obviously, she's tiny and not doing it to loose weight, it's just for self control. So, my point is that she's really mastered herself in a way I have yet to figure out. But, I'm glad to have her as a role model and a great friend. She's a really good example to me. So, thanks Lynn, you really are awesome and I'm so proud of you!

That is awesome, and I'm with you when it comes to sugar. I have no self control. You could totally run that next year, I know how you are when it comes to working out, you can't fool me! :)

I think your blog should be called "What a Woman" - when you look like you do and you STILL work out that takes self control. I would just sit and look at myself in the mirror all day. Your friend is my "no sugar hero"

Aren't you an excercise queen? And aren't you training for an event? It is super nice to have someone to look up to to keep us motivated!
