My goal was to lose 100 pounds and I have lost 107. I ran my first 5K within three months of my gastric bypass, my first half marathon within 6 1/2 months and my first marathon in 8 1/2 months. Hard work and dedication got me there. We will run together and run slowly and steadily. Most of all, it will be FUN!
IT CAN BE DONE! I MAY BE SLOW, BUT I GO!!!!! I want to help to inspire more people to take on their new lives as healthy, happy individuals as runners/joggers/walkers. I run about as fast as some people walk. So, don't fret about how fast you are. You are always faster than the guy on the couch.
This site was put together by me to inspire people who are learning to run/jog/walk as exercise and a change of life and to prepare for the 5K.
I started running one year ago. It is as much a part of my life as sleeping and breathing.
My name is Kimberly and I am the founder of Team Sadek's New Life Running Club, Inc non-profit. I have had gastric bypass and am now a runner. Running/jogging/walking are great forms of exercise and I will share my story.
