That year, I decided to try to get back in shape. I tried working out (I even joined a boot camp group), but I found that all I was doing was exercising to eat. I dropped a few pounds, but it all came back.
In 2010 I ran the Cooper River Bridge Run 10K and cut my time by 29 minutes to 48:49. Later that Summer, on July 4th in Downtown Charleston, I ran my first Ultra Marathon (a 12 hour race where I ran 50.5 miles and came in third).
I believe anyone can make this change. Walking out your front door and going for a run or walk can be an adventure every time.
