One of my goals on this weight loss journey is to walk a 5k, so here's the info on the upcoming 5k that I will be attending. I hope to have a big team.
A date has been announced for the BE&K 5K: Sat Feb 13, 2010.
The BE&K 5K kicks off the Mercedes marathon in Birmingham, Alabama.
I invite anyone that wants to come to Birmingham, Alabama for a 5k or use the 5k to warm up for the marathon on Sunday, to walk the 5k with the WhoAteMyBlog.com team. (Of course, you can run the 5k if you prefer.) I plan on getting some t-shirts printed for the event. It'll be fun!!!!
Also, there's an after party at the Boutwell Auditorium after the race. I believe everyone that finishes the race gets a cool medal. It will be a fun day.
The teams are formed to raise money for Kid One Transport in Birmingham. Read about Kid One Transport on the CNN website: http://www.cnn.com/2008/LIVING/07/01/heroes.jackson/index.html (link opens in new window)
Also, here's a video:
I'll be adding more info as soon as I know when registration will start and how to contribute to Kid One Transport. Their website indicates that registration will begin at the end of this summer.
I know it's a long time before the 5k, but I have to start training now. I am very confident that by Feb 13, 2010 I'll easily be able to walk 3.1 miles, and according to my calculations, I should be down to aprox. 381 pounds, which will be a 251 pound loss from my starting weight. Also, Feb 13 is 2 months away from the Talladega 500 (See 300 Pound Challenge). I am excited!!!!!!
