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, and for as long as I can remember, I have struggled with being overweight. I have been called names such as "fat," "chunky," and "gordo," and this negative attention began at a young age. Despite becoming accustomed to the fat shaming and negative comments, they took a toll on my self-esteem over time. At my heaviest, I weighed 460 pounds in December 2012. It was then that I knew I needed to make a change. I was determined to not only lose weight physically but also improve my mental health and transform my entire life. That was when I founded "RUN2IMPROVE" to help others on a similar journey.
My path to self-improvement has been far from easy, and I have faced pain, heartbreak, and loneliness. However, I remain committed to my goal of reaching a healthy weight of 210 pounds. With each passing year, I am one step closer to achieving my goal, which I hope to reach by December 17, 2023. I know that my story will inspire others who have struggled with their weight. With your support, I hope to share my journey and motivate others to live a healthy lifestyle. My name is Jose, and I am an overcomer.
Where Does My Donation Go?:
Your donations can make a huge difference in helping me achieve my goal of completing my first 100-mile race. Ultra training is a costly endeavor, from race entry fees and shoes to gas, food, and travel expenses, the costs can quickly add up. Even purchasing necessary items like water bottles and gels can become a financial burden. Your support will not only assist me in covering these expenses but will also serve as a motivating factor to work even harder towards achieving my goal. Knowing that I have the backing of my friends, followers, and family will help me stay focused and determined to cross the finish line.
Any additional donations that surpass my target goal will be donated to a local charity of my choice. Your contribution will not only help me accomplish my personal goal but will also make a positive impact on our local community. Thank you for your support.
My ultimate goal is to achieve my desired weight of 210 pounds by 12/17/2023, through a combination of running, exercise, and maintaining a healthy diet. To achieve this goal, I have created a detailed master plan, which includes utilizing the Strava and Garmin apps to track my daily running progress.
In addition, I will be carefully monitoring my caloric intake, limiting it to 2,500 calories per day, which will help me save 1,000 calories each day. As 3,500 calories are equivalent to one pound, this will allow me to lose up to 2 pounds each week, without even considering the weight loss I will achieve through my training and running.To help me stay on track, I have included files below that you can download to get started. My journey began on 12/19/2022 and will end on 12/17/2023, providing me with ample time to reach my goal.
I am committed to making this dream a reality, and with your support, I am confident that I will achieve success. Thank you for joining me on this journey, and let's work together to make this dream possible.
SO LETS MAKE THIS DREAM POSSIBLE!
