“Run, fat ass, run!”
Those are the words I heard from a kid hanging out of the passenger side window of an old, tan Mercedes that seemed to only be running by stubborn German willpower. At that time I was definitely a “fat a**”, heck…I still am. But, when this latest bit of fat shaming happened I was in a different place. I had just eclipsed the 75 pounds of weight loss mark. I had been commuting on bike or foot for six months, being able to count my car commutes in that time period on two hands. I had contemplated recording my journey somehow (I even bought a GoPro) but never got around to it.
So, kid in the Mercedes, thank you! You gave me a push that I needed. I smiled and waved at you because my other option was to get mad and flip you off. And then the idea for runfarun.com was born.
Some of my content will be running related. Some of my content will be biking related. Some of my content will be commute related. Some of my content will be weight-loss related. Some of my content will be hiking related. Some of my content won’t be related. So, come join me on this journey (there’s still 50 pounds of story to tell!) of life!
