Welcome To My Life Story:
My Story: It is never too late to make a change that will benefit the rest of your life. I did not realize that when I was younger, but now I have a new outlook on my life as whole and I’m not looking back anymore.
Why Help Fund My Races?
My name is Jose, I am 37 years old and since I can remember I have always been overweight. Some of my most familiar words are fat, chunky and gordo. Growing up as a child I was always made fun of because of my weight and how I looked. I became so used to the fat shaming and name calling but eventually I learned not to take what was said to me so seriously and would just let the negative comments fall by wayside and I would go on with my business. However, those negative comments still affected me.
Over the years, my self-esteem decreased and it even got to the point where I couldn’t look at myself in the mirror. But then something clicked inside me, No More, No More is what I told myself, I wanted more out of life. My highest weight was 460 pounds back in 12/20/2012. This was when I realized I needed a change, and I started my journey. I was determined to not only lose the weight both physically and mentally, but change my whole life forever and help others do the same. This was the day "RUN2IMPROVE" was created.
I’m still exercising to get to my healthy goal weight of 210. By 12/17/2020. With your support you can help me share my story with many more people who want to change their lives. I know my story will be a motivator for those individuals who have struggled with being overweight. My name is Jose and I am an overcomer and my hope is that my life journey will ignite the passion in those that want to reach their weight loss goal and maintain a healthy lifestyle.
Where Does My Donation Go?:
Your Donations help me pay for the cost of the RACE ENTRYS, SHOES, GAS, FOOD, HOTEL and TRAVEL expenses. Ultra training can be costly (not to mention buying new water bottles, gels and more!) the costs can quickly spiral. I want to be able to complete my 1st 100 MILES at this event and knowing that I have the support of friends, followers and family would encourage me to work even harder. After reaching my goal any additional donation will de donated to a local charity of my choice.
Is to reach my desired weight of 210 pounds by 12/17/2020. By running, exercising and maintaining a healthy diet. The Master Plan is listed below. I will also be using Strava app & Garmin App to help me keep track of how many miles I'm running. I will keep my calories consumption to 2,500 calories a day. Allowing me to save 1,000 calories a day. This is based on 3,500 calories equaling 1 pound. So I will not eat more than 1 pound a day.
So after each week I should have save up 5,000 calories which mean I will lose 1.5 pounds per week, and thats just watching my calories! not including my weight loss that I will get from my training and running. Imagine how much more I will lose by sweating it all out!
SO LETS MAKE THIS DREAM POSSIBLE!
