Barbara Vargas
I just started running in November 2017. My first 5K was the Rocky Run in Philadelphia. S ince then I have run several 5Ks in Philadelphia and New Jersey. In November, I was running a 17-minute mile, now I am currently at a 12-minute mile. I would like to build my speed to about a 9-10 minute mile and my endurance to a 10K. In between 5Ks, I train at the gym running on the treadmill. 

A bit of history about me: I had bariatric surgery in July 2017 (I'm one year post-op right now) and I have lost 110 pounds! The more weight I lose, the more confident I become and that translates into my running knowing that I can do it. I believe the running assists me with continued weight loss. I enjoy taking care of myself and keeping active.

I work as a paralegal which doesn’t get me away from my desk very often. I have to remind myself throughout the day to get up to walk and stretch a bit. 

My interests involve activities such as bike riding and dancing. I am trying to expand my horizon so I made a New Year's resolution to try one new class at my gym every month. I have kept that resolution—to date, I have discovered activities I didn’t even know I would love. (Such as ballroom dancing and boxing). 

I am married with a 15 year-old daughter and a 9 year-old son. 

I attend most of the runs alone so it would be nice to get to know other people with similar interests. I love meeting new people.
