I carried an extra 25 lbs for 25 years. In the era of the "Biggest Loser" that may not seem like a big deal. I had always been told by family and friends that I could "carry it." The photo of me finishing a half marathon back in 2006 attests to that. Finally, on Jan 1, 2009 I decided that I just didn't want to "carry it" anymore, not for 13.1 miles, not up and down stairs, nowhere.

Thanks for your comments on my page. I began the 10K Walk/Run program as it was described and continued it for 3 weeks. After the 3rd week, my ankle was swelling up where I had broken both bones several years ago. When doctors looked at it, they said I needed to quit running, both because of the previous tendon damage and because of the arthritis that had set in after the injury. I was so disappointed - I really wanted to do something competitive again. I've now set my goal to do a 25-mile hike in the Grand Tetons with my son. I've got a ways to work up to that, but I'm already walking demanding 8 mile hikes up hills. Perhaps I should have started slower on the 10K walk/run program like you did. Maybe I'll try it again after a few months at a much slower level of weekly improvement.
