Well, hello dear, my name is Alesha De’mina Anchundia and I am a plus-size half-marathoner. I have successfully trained and finished half-marathons, 15Ks, 12K, 10Ks and 5Ks all while plus sized, big boned and curvy. I began running in 2009 and found it to be my favorite way to exercise. Before and after that, I have had gym memberships galore and only went for the classes, the pool and sauna, horrible, I know. Running is where it’s at for me. There has always been something therapeutic about it. I began eating green (clean eating as it was called then), running and cross training and before I knew it, I had dropped 65lbs. I was full of energy, didn’t snore, and slept like a baby. My journey hasn’t been perfect; I gained back all the weight I lost and am working on losing it once more. I had two car accidents (a few years apart) which interrupted my progress both times causing me to start over. So, when I say I know the struggle, I really do. However, my struggles will not cause me to stop. It may have delayed my progress, but my time is now, as well as yours. With my collection of knowledge and tools I will show you how to change your mindset, attain your goals, and as my sister says,” live the life you deserve.”
