Shedding a big guy — week 32
On the other days I found other things to do, except for maybe Thursday.
On Sunday I generated the face you see here at the The Color Run in Seattle. It’s a 5K starting at the Seattle Center, down and back Second Avenue and finishing back at the center. The weather was perfect, I managed to finish and the event really was fun. The distance may be 5k, but the way they have things set up no one could really do it for time. You start wherever you line up, where other races have people packed in spaces related to their pace. I did intervals and once we got to Second Avenue I was jogging through the walkers in the group ahead of us. Diana called the race a “Try to run a 5k” race,” because pretty much everyone has to walk as some point. At each kilometer there are volunteers throwing colors at the runners. With the sweat I generate it caked on pretty good. I had one guy ask to get his picture taken with me.
Overall I lost 0.2 pounds during the week. I’ve been involved with a Biggest Loser (Looser) group for two weeks and so far all I’ve lost is a couple of pounds and a couple of bucks. It could be worse, right?
