I am overweight, in fact by all charts I am obese and don't you think I LOVE typing that! Give or take a slice of pie* I weigh about 180 pounds and have been as much as 220. It does not mean I am sloppy, or lazy or un-creative but on my 5'5.5 frame it does mean I am fat.
When I run ( or attempt to run- since it is about 1 minute at a time right now) I am running with at least 5 bags of sugar strapped to my body. That makes running harder than it needs to be for sure but I am doing it anyway.
A lot of people wait to run until they have " lost the weight" well given that I have had a lot of this weight for 23 years I am thinking that I had just better start running and let the weight take care of it self.. no excuses. Good shoes - yes, good bras - hell yes! excuses- not any more.
Today was hard- we were rushed, two of us forgot our water bottles. There were some tears and a bit of cursing but we did it. Week three run #1 is done!
