Secret Weapon- Being Ready for Life Althea Pomerleau November 24, 2014 My Secret Weapon is being ready for life. Between my four children I started running because I needed some way to take off the weight. Since having my children and now my grandchildren, I developed a desire to remain active so I can live life to it’s fullest. Four active kids is a lot to keep up with and my active lifestyle helps me maintain balance of mind, body and spirit. I usually have some kind of goal. It keeps me motivated because I know when I cross the starting line I had better be ready.
