This week we announced that we'd be hosting a fitness challenge with three avid BGR! followers. Our fitness challenge was inspired by these three women who shared their fitness trials and tribulations with us. They each have different lifestyles, challenges and goals, but they all realize the importance of getting healthy and fit and have committed to 2011 being the year to do just that.
During the next 12 weeks, we will share their story and their journey with you as we help guide them to a healthier lifestyle. This week we will introduce each of the ladies. We hope that their stories and journey provide you with inspiration and tips to help you get fit.

What inspired you to take the Black Girls RUN! fitness challenge?
I want to once and for all get serious about my health and make a lifestyle change. ( And it would be nice to get into my "skinny" jeans again!)
What are three specific goals you hope to achieve?
1.) I want to loose 20-25 lbs.
2.) I want to run a half marathon.
3.) I want to have a fitness routine that I am committed to follow.
What do you think will be your biggest challenge?
My biggest challenge will be staying focused even when I don't see the results that I expect.
What is your exercise of choice?
(LOL) I don't choose to do any of them, but I find running to be the most beneficial.
