      LaToya, you should join! There are a couple Toughies local to MD/DC! The online FB group is awesome and so supportive of newly obsessed runners just like you 😉

  6. TOUGH is a state of mind, it takes work to get there sometimes!

  7. in 2010 I weighed 215 pounds, and was just beginning to run. After taking one hour 21 mins to run 10k I decided I needed to get in shape. I needed to change. So I started running. I ran when felt bad. Which at the time was often. I lost my job, broke p with my partner of several years, then i sprained my ankle. I walked, getting p to rnning. I did my longest run of 12km…and then decided maybe I should try to push and try a half marathon. this Saturday i will run my 20th half marathon. It has taken a LOT of work to get there. I am still not FAST. But dammit, I am tough. I can persevere. An I have come a long way! And, I am excited about the rest of my journey.

    I'm a tough chick because I never give up, and I don't let anyone tell me I can't do anything. I've found I can do just about whatever I put my mind to, I may not be fast, and it may take me a while, but I will do it. I went from couch to marathon in a year.
