EVERYONE SEEMS TO ASK WHY I DECIDED TO LOSE WEIGHT. To be fair, the question is usually “Why did you make a change now?” Or “Why did you start running?” The answer to the first question is simply that I realized I was embarrassed of the person I had become. It took me longer to find the answer to the second question, even after I started running. I sure am glad I started, though.
I AM RUNNING THE DISNEYLAND DUMBO DOUBLE DARE FOR THE TEAM FOR LIFE, AND I NEED YOUR HELP. At the end of August, I will spend two days at Disneyland in Anaheim running: on Saturday, August 31st I will run the inaugural DIsneyland 10K, and on Sunday, September 1st I will run the Disneyland Half Marathon. That’s a total of 19.3 miles over two days, and I’m doing it with the Team For Life and the Lazarex Cancer Foundation in memory of my grandfather, Michael Innello. This is where you come in, because I need your help to raise money...
I RAN MY FIRST 5K RACE ON SATURDAY. There’s actually a lot more to this story than completing a race, but just like my PRs, I have to start somewhere. I came to the race expecting to run most of it and walk about 3 or 4 minutes in the middle, and left with a very different result that amazed me.
