Hello friends! As you know, I’m currently on vacation in Italy with Matt! We will have limited access to the internet (apologies for delayed responses to email and comments) and want to maximize time to hit the sights, so I thought it would be fun to set up a couple guest posts from friends while I’m away. Today’s guest post is from my friend Theodora. Theodora and I first met a few years ago when she emailed me about meeting up for a run, and we’ve been friends ever since, running races together, traveling to blog events together, and talking to each other on gchat practically every day, too.
Theodora has quite an inspiring story – looking at her now you might think she’s always been active and fit, but that’s far from the case. In the past few years, she has lost 50 pounds and run not 1, not 2, but 3 full marathons. She’s been a big inspiration to me as I get ready to start training for my first full marathon, and I thought all of you would find her story inspiring, too. She’s a great example of what you can achieve if you put your mind to it! Take it away, Theodora!
