“I remember trying to get up that incline and was having as difficult a time of making that climb as some of the senior citizens that were participating and I was a third of their age!” says Mandisa, 32. “Then I saw the pictures of myself and I didn’t realize that I’d become that heavy and so out of shape. I knew I had to do something.”
