What a difference a year makes! My one year Runniversary.

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!!!!!!!!!


  1. Yep, if you take this task one day at a time, one meal at a time, before you know it, you've made it through a year and made IMMENSE progress! 80 pounds heavier I never thought I could run 6.2 miles, but after 2 years of consistent effort, it was possible. Looking towards a half next year! You can teach me how it's done!!
