Five half-marathons, four 5k races, three sprint triathlons, two 10k races, and one full marathon. All in one year, and all in memory of someone who never knew she was strong.

I am estimating my current weight around 212. The official number is coming on 11/1. I probably could have improved this slightly by putting in my contacts, throwing on some mascara, and doing my hair, but looking at this right now, who cares. It's out there. I kinda feel a little sad right now, but happy that I am continuing to work at this. I also feel like, no wonder I'm so damn slow at running; I'm dragging this giant girl around with me!
By January 9, I will have completed a marathon and will be 20 pounds lighter. Then I'm going to keep on going. By the end, maybe I'll be able to wear those shorts in public.
