Welcome to my Breaking Barriers Blog. I’m Dolores Lara.  I’m 61 years old and in the best shape of my entire life, both mentally and physically.  I felt compelled to start this blog to share my story of transformation with you.  I believe in dreams, and I’m living proof that barriers can be broken well past what is considered middle age in our society.  Most importantly, I’m someone who believes that the best life has to offer is still to come.

I am a runner—more specifically a marathon runner.  It is a major force in my life.  Running has been the most grounding and stabilizing factor in my life taking me through great joys and devastating lows.  I grew up in Kansas, but I’ve spent most of my adult life in Orange County, California.  I am a career-oriented professional who is self-employed.  I’ve run and lost a business, been divorced twice, raised a son, traveled several places in the world and even survived dating again.

My blog will focus on the tremendous power of putting one foot in front of the other to shape our lives.  But it’s also about much more – careers, relationships, health and well-being and keeping life in perspective.  I offer my story to encourage all of you who are looking toward middle age to see the future with courage and confidence… because our greatest joys are still ahead to experience.

Let’s break barriers together.
