The Race for the Cure




I had a great time today at the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure here in the Charleston, SC area.  It was a 5K and it was for a good cause.

This is my third race this year.  It's easy for me to forget day-to-day that I have lost the weight that I've lost. But something like this drives home the success.

I would have never been able to even walk from the parking lot to the starting line 18 months ago. It just wasn't possible. And that's why I do them.  Because I can.

So today is October 15, 2011. Yesterday I weighed in at 325.5. I have at least 100 pounds left to lose. The more weight I get off my knees, the more I can run.

Onward and Upward!
