Welcome! Sounds like you've got a great start.Good morning folks! My name is Jerry from Baton Rouge, LA. I'm 36, married with two great children ages 6 (Girl) and 2 (Boy). Not all that long ago I was a marathon runner with my last one being WDW in 2019. The downward trend was in full swing leading up to the race which resulted in personal worst. Somewhere along the way I went from fit to not so much gaining 35 lbs along the way.
My 2020 goal is to drop that weight and run either a half or full marathon in January 2021. To do so, I have started running early in the morning (4:30 AM) with our Brittany Spaniel who is even more excited than me lol. Not only will reaching these goals do wonders for the physical side of things, but mentally I am just a much happier person when I exercise regularly.
Since starting I am down 5lbs so far this year by not eating so much bad food and the start of running. I will continue to try to check in as often as I can for updates and to see how others are doing as well. If anyone is looking to get into running, feel free to visit the running thread 2020 version on the runDisney section of this forum. Good luck everyone and together we can all reach out goals!
