My exciting news of the day is that I won our 8 week biggest loser contest. I dropped a total of 23.6 pounds. I've noticed how the weight loss has helped my running and would like to keep pushing forward with it to hopefully further help my upcoming race season. Collectively the 9 of us in the contest lost 87.6 pounds. As excited as I am to win I'm a little disappointed that the competition is over. Having some strong people to go up against kept me focused, and it will be hard to replace the motivation they gave me.
Thanks to DJ, Sarah, Ruth, Nycol, Colette, Katie, Kayla and Amanda for competing against me. I hope you all got as much out of this experience as I did.
