Niagara Falls Marathon

August 02, 2006

I will be walking the Half-Marathon, which is a 13.1 mile walk. I am focusing my walking sessions for this event, and lose weight at the same time.

I am really motivated , to the point that I want to try a full marathon in the near future. (will see how I feel after the half). The Big Sur Marathon on the California coastline, near Carmel seems to be an inspirational one. I just love the fresh air and breath-taking views of the Pacific North-West.

I am serious about the half-marathon, I and inviting any other weight-loss bloggers or any one by out there to join me on this event. Please advertise this to your friends and readers as it will be good to have someone there with the same goals and experiences. Please PASS THE WORD. The race is on October 22nd, and you can register till 1 day before the marathon.

Here is the information about the Niagara Falls Marathon. It is on both sides of the border, starts in the USA and ends in Canada. You can check and get more information on their website.

By the way I weighted myself today at 283.8 lbs, that is about 5 pounds less than my last weight posting. I am so excited, I can feel the under 280's now, that will be like another artificial barrier in my mind, I just can't wait for it to happen. I am in the process of taking some pictures, that I can post so I can show my full body length front and rear, I will post those in my next posting , once I figure out the technical aspect of blogger.

Do something, Do anything, Get Going, NOW

Roddy - I did the Niagara Falls half last year and it was a blast. It rains there often but if you're dressed for it you won't care. Have fun!
