|Jackson all decked out to run|
I'm curious to see how my body will hold up to this. I have bad knees, but so far they've been handling this okay. I'm also wondering how much weight I will lose. My goal is to lose 10% of my body weight by the end of the year, bringing me down to 207 pounds, but I am not certain what my ultimate final goal will be. All I know is that I used to have to run for punishment or conditioning in the sports I did in high school, football and lacrosse, so running has never been something I've particularly enjoyed. I've never gotten the "runner's high" so I wonder if I'll ever hit that in my lifetime. I'm looking forward to taking this journey though, and hopefully competing in a 5k around Thanksgiving this year. Wish me luck!
