In my attempts to hold off the diabeetus, I have been running. I have been eating better and lost about 25lbs or so.
My father registered me for the Air Force mini marathon in Dayton. It is the 21st of this month. I have been trying to train, and done a decent job.
I was able to finally cash in a birthday present and got new running shoes. Mom took me to the Blue Mile. They ask you questions and watch you run for a minute, then make a shoe recommendation.
Sparing the details, I ended up with pair of day-glo blue running shoes. with lime colored soles. They are comfy and I have been breaking them in as much as possible.
I am not a super runner, but I am enjoying it for the most part.
