Your support will benefit the BSO and my obsession to remain at a reasonable weight, even though I am eating salt water taffy right now.
On September 7, 2010, I secretly started running. Or should I say 'moving'. I did so late at night when nobody could see me. I would run for a block and then catch my breath. If somebody was able to see me run, I would wait until I turned a corner before I would stop so that they thought that I was still running. But the next day I would run a block and a half before I felt like collapsing. That was two years ago and 90 pounds ago.
I have NEVER missed one day of running since September 7, 2010. Today, I run more than just one block and I do it in broad daylight. EVERY day, I run about seven miles. 85% of the time I actually enjoy it. You can't run 7 miles in 15 minutes (even though Paul Ryan says he can) so I have to schedule it into my life every single day.
I have been told that running is the worst thing that I could do. I always thought that murder, meth, or crack was. People say that I shouldn't run every day. Sorry, but I have to. I can't gain my weight back and refuse to let a day slip by. I think that you have to be an ex-smoker to understand it. Missing one day is like taking a drag. You can't and I haven't.
So sponsor me. I have run 3 5Ks, 1 10K, and I half-marathon. Please realize that I had to take two periods of gym during my senior year of high school in order to graduate. Your support helps the BSO (God knows they need it) and my obsession to never be obese again (God knows I can't).
