Day 17.

Today wasn’t as good as I thought it would be. In spite of jogging more than normal and running a bit, my pace was a bit off. But all that will get sorted as I train toward the goal of running in the 2018 YMCA Turkey Trot on Thanksgiving. Progress is never linear, as much as we’d like it to be.

More good news, though. I’m now down 7 pounds from when I started 2 weeks ago. Only 28 more to meet my goal! By then, I’ll be able to do things like: tie my shoes without straining, climb the stairs without huffing and puffing, and look good in my Speedo! Of course, by Turkey Day, it’ll be a bit too cool for swimming, so I’ll hold off on modeling it till a later date!

If you see me out on the Katy Trail between Fitzhugh and Reverchon, say hello and join me. We’ll blaze the trail together.
