Today was another solid day. One more day down and one day closer to my target.
I have spoken previously about how I want to run the London Marathon, I have also spoken previously about being able to be whoever you want to be and do whatever you want to do. Well today I made the first huge step to becoming who I want to be and achieving something unheard of a mere 22 days ago – today I was accepted to run on behalf of Buttle UK, who have been helping children and young people in need across the UK since 1953 with their grant programs. I am exceptionally proud to represent Buttle UK and I cannot wait to get on that starting line in April 2014.
The extent of the task in hand hasn’t really sunk in yet. How does a man go from 150+ kilos to running a marathon in a year? I have a rough idea how I am going to achieve this but I know one thing for sure I am the man to do it! It is going to take significant mental, emotional and physical endurance but I am determined to succeed, I keep imagining the feeling of achievement and elation when I cross the finish line, that is going to make all the hard work, sacrifices and dedication worthwhile. I want people to look at me and be inspired to change their lifestyle, lose weight and achieve their goals. If I can do it then anyone can.
What are your lifestyle and weight loss goals? What do you want to be able to do that you can’t now? What is your key motivator for success?
