The race that started it all, the race that sparked my curiosity for running is this weekend. Lets just make this clear, I am an overweight runner, and instead of loosing weight and then becoming a runner I decided not to wait. Why wait for something you love doing? Life is made for living and pre-babies I was a fit strong runner, but I for one am done waiting for the someday when I regain that physic.
The Wharf to Wharf race is 6 miles from Santa Cruz wharf to Capitola wharf. It is littered with bands, balloons, people dressed up for halloween, and so many runners it takes 20 minutes to cross the starting line. I loved it from the first time, 3 years ago pushing a double stroller and walking the entire 6 miles.
Sense that first race I have run 2 1/2 marathons and countless 10k’s. My husband is even joining me again this year. We have matching t-shirts and all.:) I am still an overweight runner, but the excitement of being part of something makes me forget. I don’t have to run the entire race, but I do have to enjoy every minute.
This post if for the women waiting to be thin, to be rich, to find the right guy, stop waiting and live. Life is to short and you will never be perfect enough for anything. I am so glad I have not put my life on hold while I’m loosing weight.
For those of you following from #31DBBB I am on vacation for the weekend. I’ll be on track when I get back.:)
