5 years ago I used to be an average runner. I was doing it to lose weight, I was still a big dude....265lbs at 6'4 at my lightest...started running at 318lbs. Got a new g/f, quit working out, went back to old habits, and over the next 5 years, I was back at 338.5 on jan 1, 2007. So I've started working out again and today I did my first 5k. It was definatly not all running. I did a run/walk and it turned out to be 2m running and 1.2m walking. I was still damn proud. Anyways, thats my update for you guys. BTW, started 338.5 Jan 1 and currently sitting at 291.5lbs. Ideally I'd like to get to 225lbs but not sure hwo long that will take. Will be very satisfied at 240lbs. I bet though when i hit 240lbs, I won't want to stop.
