I’ve just watched Fat to Finish on Netflix about group of people who got together to form a running team to run the Ragner Relay race across Florida. It was quite emotional 😭 12 people with a common understanding. 12 people who when fat were deeply unhappy but had found a love of running to lose weight. Everyone of the team had lost over 100 lbs.
Each one of them know that feeling that I have found during crossing the finish line of a race … that feeling that you can do anything. Anything is possible.
My first international race the Cursa del Nassos Barcelona New Years Eve 2013. I remember the feeling when I stood at the start of this race. I nearly bottled it. Everyone looked like a “proper” athlete.
But I remember the feeling when I crossed that line. I felt amazing. When you have been so over weight and never believing that you would be ever able to achieve anything like that. It is totally awesome.
It’s a lifestyle and mindset change that I am glad I have found. It’s been a long journey. I weighed the same then as I do now. That’s frustrating 3 years down the line. But that’s life my weight has meandered.
I’m now focussed. 60 pounds down plus. 2017 is going to be my year. Any how, this documentary got me thinking. Why don’t I form a team. A team of people who have found this. So for my 50th (yes 50. I cannot soo believe that) I am going to form that team to do a race together. Not sure on the race you, want my new team mates to decide that between us but will be in May/June 2018.
Do you want to be on my team?
