I have repeated a consistent trend over the last four years that involves losing a copious amount of weight and then regaining it back. There's something that happens after vacation in August that gets me back into old habits. Last year is no exception. This year, I am determined to lean on my staff, gather smooth stones and a slick sling and face this giant.

TMinus110 is not only about my personal journey but also includes those in my family improving themselves in a similar fashion. I'm fortunate to have a family that embraces together these activities. With that said, I'm thoroughly impressed with Debra and Joshua taking on the 39th Annual Old Soldiers Day 8K in such short time to our return to running.
It warms my heart to see mother and son together enjoying an activity like this. I'm not used to being on the side lines but I also enjoyed sharing this moment with Gabrielle in support of Joshua and Debra.
Being a runner myself, I shared an empathetic amount of support for Joshua and Debra as I cheered them on at the half way point. I could see the effort on their faces. One particular spectator benefited included the race course looping around a block twice, so I got to support them at the start and halfway point of the race; and then again at the finish line.
I am so proud of these 8K finishers! This is Debra first race in over a year and Joshua's first 8K.
Way to go Joshua and Debra!
