|A breaking point|
|2007 after the Dr. guided diet|
As of January of 2012, Keri has lost 35 of those pounds with the help of dedicated exercise, nutrition and the HCG diet. In February she completed her first half, the Disney Princess Half Marathon and finished it with a hurt foot. When I witnessed her crossing the finish line, I was crying tears of joy because my best friend has struggled over the years with weight and now she is accomplishing so much. This special day for Keri made me fall in love with Run Disney. Although I had completed my first 5K the day prior to her half, I made it my goal - to become an official princess in 2013 while crossing the finish line alongside Keri.

Presently Keri continues to run as many races as she can, one of which we did together in July.

Keri is also competing in triathlons now! She tied for second in the Tiger Shark Triathlon Series in her age group and division with our friend Tara. It is amazing to me that these girls wake up at 4am to swim with the masters in Port Orange with Ryan Lochte's father Steve as their coach. She also just purchased her first road bike.

Every Thursday, I will dedicate my blog to Keri so she can discuss her goals, accomplishments and struggles while she is fighting to lose that final 10lbs. If you have any questions, comments or words of encouragement for Keri, please send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will see that it gets to her prior to the following weeks post. You can also follow Keri on twitter at @klynno28
Even though she wants to lose those last 10lbs, how wonderful and beautiful does she look today!!!
