I forgot to say I live in the Highland City area, south of Lakeland, toward Bartow, near highway 98. My husband Gary and I will be celebrating our 39th wedding anniversary next month. We have 1 grown daughter and 2 granddaughters, ages 7 and 11. I am a retired social worker-nonprofit administrator-grant proposal writer. Gary is a retired professional mechanical engineer. I retired early to care for my grandchild (just one at the time) and I now have both of them several days a week. They live 2 miles away. Gwen will be starting 2nd grade at Highland City Elementary and Natalie will be starting 6th grade at Union Academy in Bartow, the IB (international baccalaureate) middle school.

I started running at age 61 in 2011. It has been the best retirement hobby I could imagine! I belong to Lakeland Runners Club and the Lakeland Galloway Marathon Training program. Runners are wonderful people! I will be running the 3rd Watermelon 5K of 2018 with Natalie on August 11. November 11 will be the Red Ribbon Half Marathon here in Lakeland, my 13th half if I'm counting right! Hubby and I social dance every Thursday morning at the Magnolia Building and have for about 7 years. We square dance every 2nd and 4th Tuesday evening there, too, and go to Plant City Strawberry Square for other round and square dances and lessons, too.

Would love to meet local people interested in fitness, running, dancing, eating right, socializing without food pushers, theater (season member of TWH and LCT), good books, grandkids, life in general!

I am Jane. I live in Lakeland with my dear husband, Bob. We have three kids, Steve (42, Tampa), Scott (40, Denver) and Stacy (38, Lakeland). We adore two brilliant and unusually good looking grandchildren (LOL) . . . Jordan (10) and his sister Audrey (3) who live a mile from me. I am retired from being an executive minister for Community of Christ. I have lived in Kansas City, Omaha, Denver and now Lakeland. My hobbies are reading and cooking (danger-danger).

I am here to lose weight and get healthy.

I am Marsha. After 50 years of overweight/obesity I finally got to a healthy weight. With SP I've been maintaining (with ups and downs and struggles) for 9 years now. The link to my SP success story, written several years ago, is below.
