On your mark… Get Set…..

I have registered for my first race since May and I am ready to slip the running shoes back on.  Now that the worst of the 100 degree weather is firmly in the rear view mirror, let the fall/winter race season begin!

The race I registered for is the Outback Bonzer 5K for Friedreich’s Ataxia.  The race is this saturday Oct 23rd in High Point NC.

According to Wikipedia ataxia is a nervous disorder that causes motor function problems such as clumsiness, trouble walking, spine curvature etc.  Similar symptoms to muscular dystrophy but from a different cause.

Food after the race from Outback and Chick-fil-a.. Woot!

  • About Me

    I am a recent graduate in Food Science (NC State, 2009) and I work for a major food manufacturing company. I love food, but I can no longer eat anything that crosses my path. About 24 months ago I begin a serious struggle to get my obesity under control and reduce my chances of developing Type II diabetes. Since September of '09 I have lost 50 pounds and I still have a long ways to go. I've started eating better and exercising more, including taking up running.
