Muddy Runner Dirty Dozen: No. 1

This is it. My number one post of the year. I felt quite proud for having run the Run Through Redlands Half Marathon, for several reasons.

It was a half marathon, my longest race distance to date. It cemented my status as a runner and let me know that I can set goals and achieve them, even tough goals that involve 13.1 miles.

But it also let me reflect on how I used to be and the runner I'd become.

Impossible? What's impossible?

That this person can't lose the weight?

That this severely overweight guy can't change his lifestyle?

That the fat won't come off, no matter what?

Well, I can vouch personally that nothing is impossible.

And I've got 13.1 miles to back me up.
