Taking Back Control

My name is Jordyn. And I would like to personally thank you for giving my life back to me.

I am a 20-year-old PSU student. I have never been that skinny girl, and I have never really been comfortable with how I looked. I started to lose weight through diet and exercise and did really well, getting down to 150 lbs (pretty healthy for my height). Then on November 30th, 2014, my 27-year-old sister died suddenly from and aneurysm. I lost sight of who I was and basically sat and home depressed and always eating. I got up to 190 lbs.

In January, my boyfriend suggested the Mudd Run Sprint in Pleasant Gap. I was a little scared, I have to admit, but I signed up anyway. Little did I know that by having this goal, I was taking control of my life again. I have lost almost 20 lbs so far and am starting to like myself again, all because of training for the Mudd Run. Thank you for giving me something to reach for, and for showing me I can beat the bad things in life and turn them into good ones.

Can’t wait to see you all on the 26th!

Blessings,
Jordyn Brooks
