I have always been active growing up, I was a competitive gymnast for 12 years and I also ran track in high school. I was fit and lived a healthy lifestyle. I weighed 97 pounds going into college and I had a lean figure. In college I would run a 5K or two each year and that was about the extent of my “healthy living”. I had just let life get the best of me. I had a baby in 2004, I also started working full time on an ambulance as a paramedic, which is a very sedentary lifestyle when you are not running calls. I have now reached the heaviest I have ever been, 125 pounds that is more than I weighed the day I delivered my son!

Umo and I had been friends in high school and ran track together.  After high school we drifted apart. However, we did stay friends through Facebook. Late 2011 I began to see her posts about Camp Gladiator Boot camp. It wasn’t until February 2012 that I decided to try Camp Gladiator! I have loved every minute of the boot camps! I have finally found the motivation that I had lost and regained an active, healthy lifestyle. I have also made some amazing friends through CG.

CG and Umo’s motivation and support have really inspired me! I have reached my target weight, 115 pounds, and maintained it. In July, I decided to sign up for my first half marathon and in October I accomplished my goal. I finished in two hours, four minutes and ran the entire time! Since October I have run one more half marathon and feel like I am in the best shape I have been in a long time!
