My half marathon is coming up quick. As many of the readers of this blog know, I'll be doing the Fairfield Half Marathon on June 2nd. I'm both excited and nervous about it, as I know a lot of people will be cheering for me.
For me, the half marathon is a way to prove just how far I have come from my obese days. I could barely climb a flight of stairs 7 years ago. To be able to move without limitations is such an awesome feeling. I once asked someone why formerly obese people like to run so much. His answer says it all... "we run because we can!"
