On Saturday, August 1st.  I will be participating in my first 5K race.  It's taking place at the Hope Sports Complex in Lansing.

Over the past year, I have made a concerted effort to get myself in better shape.  On Memorial Day 2014, I weighed 201 lbs.  I was FAT, lazy and tired all of the time.  But I got on a different eating program and I lost 22 lbs in 6 weeks!!!

After that, I joined a gym.  I work out 3-4 days a week.  And I feel stronger, more energetic, and just better with less discomfort.  I'm down to 165-170 lbs. right now.  I'm still not where I want to be, but I'm a lot better than I was before.

I've never done a 5K before, but I'm looking forward to it.  I just want to finish without too much pain.  I don't have a time goal, but I don't want to finish last!!!!

It should be fun jumping on all the inflatable obstacles, the II5K was a huge success last year.  I expect more this year.  I hope to see you there!!!
