You can do it!
« on: Sun Jul 06, 2008 - 14:48:18 »
My lovely bride did.  Here are some pictures:





She ran the peachtree road race this year in 73 minutes.  It is a 10K race.

She went to Cool Running and did the "The Couch-to-5K Running Plan" and it has worked for her.  She has lost 50 pounds in one year between the running and eating healthy foods.


Keisha did it!



YOU CAN TOO!!!

It doesn't look like the same person!  Are you for real?

You must be so proud of her.  I'm glad she was able to do it.

I was looking at the couch-to-5k plan back about 6 months ago, more as a way to build endurance and tone-up than to lose weight, but decided jogging/running would be too hard on my knees.  I decided to power walk up and down hills instead, adding a weighted backpack to increase the workload. 
I just came through a major illness, so it's back to square one as far as fitness, I could barely go up a flight of stairs when I got out of the hospital a month ago, but I am gradually building my strength back up.

I am very proud of her.  Those photos are not doctored in any way.  They are completely for real.  It has changed her as a person as well.  She is much more confident as a person and has a closer walk with the Lord because she is being a better steward of the body that God has given to her.

That is not to say that if someone has a medical condition that prevents them from being healthy that they should be condemned in any way.  But she has much more energy and doesn't even take her usual 3-4 hour nap on Sunday after church like she used to.

She is leaving a different legacy for our children (when we have them).
