Getting involved

My problem has always been getting involved and (if I do get involved) staying motivated. Yesterday I was doing some browsing and I came across a flyer for a 5k Run & Walk Against Hunger event. Haha - I'm fat and hungry and I'm going to walk/run in a walk against hunger- how ironic. I figured it was a good way to get involved and do something good for our local food bank and plus push myself to train for a 5k. I'm actually really excited and I think I am going to start posting picture of my treadmill times to track my progress. FYI The 5k is on Thanksgiving so I cant think of a more perfect way to start that day than with a good workout!

I think another thing that pushed me to search for a walk/run event yesterday was I got a text from a friend. It wasn't of a kitty hanging on for dear life with a inspirational quote or a chain text threatening my well being if I don't send to my closest 10 friends  ... but .. a picture...a picture of me.This must of been when I was at least 15-16 years old (btw I'm 24 now) but wow.. it really mad me upset at myself. I was so thin and yes I know I was 16 in the picture but my friends standing in the picture with me are all the same size and it made me question why wasn't I? I don't have kids or anything else I can blame it on, just lazy. Shame on me. I'm going to be posting some pics soon it just hard because I don't have a computer at home at the moment so I do what I can from work. But on that note here is the pic I was sent .. I'm the one on the right.
