A year ago she couldn’t even run one mile let alone consider running 26.2. She was flattered by the confidence that people had in her, but Karrie had her doubts.

Sandy Runs a 5K Race and Leaves her Plateau in the Dust

With some additional encouragement from her family, Sandy decided to train for a 5K run — 3.1 miles — to help her advance her fitness goal and defeat that pesky weight loss plateau. Of course it took some extra convincing from her niece, but Sandy understands that this challenge comes with great rewards and feelings of achievement.

It’s nice to have my family behind me,” said Sandy. “And yes, my niece really did talk me into it (participating in the 5K).”

The payoff was sweet! Sandy crossed the finish line and left her plateau in the dust — she now weighs 148 pounds! Last time we caught up with Sandy she had run into the dreaded “plateau,” and she was stuck at 152 pounds.

“It did move me to the next goal,” said Sandy about training for and running a 5K. “I finally got below 150 (pounds).”
