BALLANTYNE | feature I have always worked out, but I've never been much of a runner. My friend DeeDee asked me if I wanted to join the Isabella Santos running team last year, but I declined due to intimidation of the distance. But this year she convinced me to try it, and I'm hooked. There are 150 of us on the team training for different half marathon races, but Coach Tom makes each of us feel individually important. I have always been thin but not muscular, so my trainer Betsy (Shuster) helped me to significantly increase my strength and muscle. I only weigh myself once a year at the doctor. I listen to my body and know I need to make a change if my clothes don't feel right. I drink mostly water or coffee and occasionally, Deep Eddy (vodka). It's all about balance! The older I get, the more I am willing to spend the money to invest in my health. I have a 4-year-old daughter and want to be able to keep up with her.
