The weight is back down this week to 236. I had a little detour, but it looks like I am back on track and I am within 11 pounds of my first goal of loosing 100 pounds. I know the scale is not everything, but it feels great to see that number go down.
Only 16 days until the race in San Jose and I can't wait. I have a bunch or new running clothes thanks to my birthday yesterday and tomorrow I am picking up a new pair of very nice running shoes that will hopefully help me run a little more naturally. This Sunday I have a 15 mile run scheduled, my longest run yet and the longest run before the San Jose race. I'm a little nervous as I always am for a new long distance, but I know I can do it.
After waiting for so long for my first race to get here, I can't believe that I am just two weeks away from the race. My running shirts with my sponsors logo on the front and my mantra on the back ("1 YEAR - 100 POUNDS - 1 MARATHON") should be arriving in about a week, so I'm excited for that too. It all seems to be coming together - this is just too cool!
