Okay, I'm 6 foot, 280, losing weight. I've run six 5K's and one 10K since June 2012. I am slow but I do not give up. I like live music, blues, jazz mostly. I like the arts and current events. I love getting out of the house and doing it! Behind the curtain is not for me. I grew up with traditional values. I am spiritual but not adhered to a particular religion. My family is Jewish and Catholic. We love to express guilt and recipes. I hate second place. I have made all the mistakes and I learned from them. I like a woman who acts like a lady in public, no matter what. You have a great smile, a warm hand and you are accepting of others. You like to volunteer and help people less fortunate. I really do not like this approach on line but I am willing to keep going. Can you tell? I'll take another try and I appreciate those of you that have contacted me.
