Meet Gertrude

My secret weapon!


Oh she’s not flashy, or sexy.  But this girl rocks my workout!  While providing my bum some good shock-absorbed protection!

Whew – I don’t know what I was thinking!  I began this biking journey believing that cycling would be easier than running.  Well, It’s NOT!  It’s just a different kind of hard.  Yet, A Good Kind Of Hard!  Hit the Road!!!  Comfort zone…..I’m Outta Here!

Ciao for now……Diane

About Diane

Ciao! My name is Diane. I'm a wife, a mom, a working professional, and a Weight Watcher from New Jersey. I started blogging in 2011, at 45 years old, when I was training for my first Half Marathon at Rutgers on April 22, 2012. Since then, I've lost 80 pounds, completed my Half Marathon goal and gone on to train for and run my very first Full Marathon. On Jan 13, 2013, I ran the Disney Marathon in Orlando, Fl! What an incredible day. As the saying goes -- "The person who starts the race is not the same person who finishes the race." I am forever changed! So now we move on to the next phase of this journey! Come along. We're in this together!! Ciao for now!
