As you read last week, I was a few pounds away from meeting my overall goal of weighing 213 by October 10. I changed up my diet this week, reincorporating salads and more water (as if I could consume anymore than the 70 oz a day I already drink) and lo and behold my weight this morning was....yup, 213! I started this process (which isn't over by a longshot) on July 20 weighing 231.5 Since then I have really changed the way I eat and what I eat. I have lost 18.5 pounds in that time and feel remarkable.
Next goal: weigh 205 pounds by December 12, the day I run the Rocket City Marathon.
Here's the deal. I've never run this race before and am not familiar with the starting/staging area for the race. But the folks affiliated with the Running of the Ears website (www.runningoftheears.com) have run the race. So since I want to meet some of those great people, and I want to meet those listeners who are racing. I have decided to piggy back on their meet up location. Someone on the ROTE forums posted a satellite photo and marked it for the meetup. I'll be at the race location at least 45 minutes prior to start and will get to this location as soon as I can so I can have a long time to meet those of you who will be there.
I will be the guy wearing red shorts, a black Brooks ID shirt, and possibly a white hat or visor.
