I am a ultramarathon trail runner (50 and 100 miles). I've ran at least 55 road marathons including the Boston Marathon 3 times.
Ms. Health and Fitness and Jared Allen's Homes for Wounded Warriors would like to thank Polly Launay and her voters for helping us donate to our injured United States military veterans!
Don't "diet" or go on "fad diets". Eat in moderation and exercise daily. Eat less sugar and more protein, vegetables, and fruit. Don't look at food as bad, but as fuel for the body. The scale isn't always a true measure of your size, fitness, or beauty. Your weight is only a number. Don't live your life by the scale. Beauty comes in all shapes and sizes.
It makes me feel accomplished. When I try to live healthy, it spills over into all facets of my life and makes me feel good about myself. I'm physically able to do more and experience life more when I feel good.
I would pay off some debt. I would also finally have some extra money to enter some races that I haven't been able to afford.
