I am still a'sparkin'.....just not taking too much time to be online as life is happening in the real world.
Two months ago I made a goal of running the 4 on the 4th race here in Bridgton. I am walking and running every day and feeling pretty strong. I am very committed to doing this,have already registered for the race. I must run it at a bit faster than 8 mph in order to break my record time of 32 minutes. I want to win it for my age and gender category and I know I can do it if I try hard enough. My one concern is that I will still be carrying around a sizable amount of extra weight still. I'm down in the 160's somewhere but I should really weigh 120-130-I'm not that tall or big boned.But no matter-I mean to run it not with standing,no matter what I weigh on the 4th of July. Three years ago I was registered to run this particular race when I got a call in the night around 3 am 4th of July from my sister-in-law telling me my 51 year old brother was dead. I'd spoken to him only a few hours earlier around 9 pm the night before. So needless to say-I did not run in the race that year.
I'm running it for Kurtie,my younger brother this year and I mean to win it. If I don't win it this year,I will commit to winning it next year as I will be at a better weight by next year.I am not going to go back into weight apathy.
