Aliya Armstrong – Started Her Own Running Group

My first attempt at completing a running event was training for the Helen DeVos Children’s Hospital Grand Rapids Kids Marathon in 2011. I had always despised running, but I was excited to complete this training with my four-year-old daughter. The sad part? I could not even run a mile without stopping. I watched my daughter’s energy and excitement during our run practices, and I was so winded and jealous. What happened to the competitive cheerleader and very active woman I used to be? Did I lose it after birthing three children? This occurrence ignited a spark in me to start my own training for a 5k. I registered to complete the 5k race the same weekend as my daughter’s Kids Marathon.

Kimberly Baker – Running Since 2009 It Saved Her Life

To say that running saved my life is, well, an understatement.

In July 2009, I weighed 271 pounds and was well on my way to any number of health problems: diabetes, heart disease, you name it. What’s more, this “I-love-kids” woman suffered from very irregular periods and there was a good chance that she might never have kids of her own. I was sad. And felt like so much was out of my control.

The Best Place To Find Awesome Wallpapers On The Internet

I consider myself to be spastic when it comes to my computer's wallpaper.  I am constantly changing it from one image to another on almost a daily basis.  How do I constantly find awesome images, you ask?  Well, I find my images on Reddit, in a variety of "porn" subreddits.  "Porn" has a different meaning when on Reddit, it means something along the lines of "beautiful imagery."  You can find subreddits like 'EarthPorn,' or 'CityPorn,' or 'HistoryPorn.'  Each subreddit is full of hi-res images that work perfectly for wallpapers.
