The One Where I Talk About Running
It always amazes me when I'm able to do something so physical, I know this is true for a lot of people who used to be very overweight, but I sometimes still think of myself that way and think that I must have the same physical limitations I used to have. In high school I got to my top weight, about 265 pounds and was about as out of shape as possible. As soon as I graduated I started to work to lose the weight, I had a treadmill in my room and I walked at least 5 times a week. Eventually, I lost the weight and now live in the 135 - 140 pound range.
But now I'm a runner! I might not be a very fast runner, but I'm a runner :) I'm really looking forward to the 5K on Halloween, I'm not 100% sure what my costume will be, I'm thinking black cat though - I can wear my black running pants and black zip up running top and then crochet some ears, probably a variation of my bear headband. I'll probably do some nose and whisker makeup too and maybe some black fingerless mitts, good thing those are so quick to make!
