A year ago I started running by doing the c25k (couch to 5k) program. I was 380 lbs at the time. I gave this a shot in order to prepare for my first 5k race which was on 11/14/10.
Here I am at my first race ever, 370lbs, 16:52 pace
Almost a full year has passed from my first race, I am now 246lbs and ran my first ever sub 10:00 mile (9:53) this past weekend at the 5th Ave Mile. Im also gearing up for my first ever half marathon in less than 2 weeks.
So in a years time Ive lost 134lbs and dropped over 6 minutes from my pace.
As happy as I am with the past year, I cant help but look forward to the coming year and what lies ahead! Marathon training begins!!!!!!!!!
