When I was in my 2nd month of weight loss last year I chose to compete in a 5k

as the title states and the category this one is about motivation. When I started July I was walking about 3.1 miles a day and I thought to myself when I seen about a 5k/10k here where I live hey I walk that much why not see if I can do it. So I trained every day for 2 months to get ready for it
