I'm training for a marathon!

I've finally decided. I am running the Salt Lake City Marathon, April 19, 2008. I decided to do this blog because I need a little accountability. I lost 25 lbs. between February and August and I've already gained back 10. It's ridiculous. So, I need to lose 20 lbs. before the marathon. I know I could still run the marathon at the weight I am now but it's harder on your body to carry extra weight.

I have discovered over the last several months that even though exercise is very important to weight loss, nutrition is the key. So, my plan is to record what I eat and the exercise that I do everyday. I know this may not be the most interesting blog and I'm not sure anyone will even visit it, but just in case they do I'm going to do my best so I don't look too bad.

So, here we go!

Awesome! You are amazing. After you mentioned in your comment on my blog that you were thinking about starting another I decided to check and I was pleasantly surprised. I am so excited for you. It must feel good to have such a huge goal. I ran out to the mail box the other day and when I got back to my house I felt like I had run a marathon.
By the way, I posted a comment and then realized Matt was still signed in and so it looked like Matt had left to comment. That is why there is a deleted comment. Sorry.
