If you would have come to me in January of this year and told the old 325 pound me that in just 9 months I would be running 13.1 miles in a race with 13,000 other people and actually looking forward to it I would have said you were crazy and that it was impossible for me to do something like that. Well, here I am, doing the impossible!
The anticipation is intense right now. This morning I set of for my last training run before the race, a short 4 mile run that I finished in 35:06. The whole time of the run today I was thinking this Sunday and getting more and more excited. In just 3 days, I am going to run a half marathon, sharing the course with everyone from Olympic medalists, a world record holder, and me, the 91 pound lighter former couch potato.
If I can pull this all of in just 9 months, imaging what I could do with another 9 . . .
