About Me

I live in Central Arkansas and have recently made some big mistakes, I won’t go into the details, but all I can say is I have learned from them and I am trying to be a better and kinder human being.

I started running in July 2006, I run about 5 days a week, I do it to keep in shape and stay healthy. I’ve run 2 marathons, Little Rock Marathon in March 2008 and the San Francisco Marathon in August 2008.  Probably way too much for someone who has only been running 2 years, but hey, I’m no spring chicken!  I travel quite a bit for my job, which puts a damper on my running, I hate running on a treadmill so I will only get in a couple of days when I’m out of town. What else…oh yes, I have a daughter, Stephanie, who is grown and out on her own, and two cats, Smokey who lives with me and Georgie, who I don’t have custody of, bummer, I miss him a bunch, but he’s a wild one. That’s all the juicy stuff, exciting I know.

I have attached a picture so you can get to know me a little better, it’s a picture of me on the right and Annette on the left, we took this picture while we were in San Francisco for the marathon, we had taken the Ferry to Sausalito, CA, I was freezing, as usual, it did warm up a bit, but not much.  We had a lot of fun!

Fast Forward to 2013 – WOW – I was running 5 days a week, lucky if I run 2 days of week now.  My life has changed a lot, in good ways.  I try to stay active, working out or running at least 4-5 days a week, spending time with my grand babies Sydney (3 yrs) and Sadie (8 weeks).  Still trying to find my place in this world, in my neighborhood, in my relationships, in my workplace….. just trying to understand it all.  I guess I’m like everyone else, I would rather be home doing stuff I love instead of the job that I have to do to pay my mortgage, I have come to realize I have myself to rely on, no one else.

  6. Cheryl,

    My name is Abe Martinez. I’m a radio reporter at KUAR and a runner who is running the LR Marathon this year. I’m doing a story on why people are running this year and I would love to do an over-the-phone interview. Note too long, nothing too personal… I promise. Just need one more element for the story and yours would fit perfectly. E-mail me back if this is a possibility.

    Thanks… Abe

  7. Hey Cheryl, long time now see. InteliStaf seems like ages ago now. It’s good to see you are still doing well.
