Lapped By a Guy in a Walker

Embarrassing.  I mean REALLY embarrassing.

Last night, at our local high school outdoor track, I was passed by an older guy with a walker.  I bet he was 75.  And then, to add insult to injury, an older lady with socks and Birkenstocks fully lapped me.  Me being in shorts, t-shirt and running shoes.

I think I’m getting a bit faster, but my legs only seem to carry my 336 lb ass so fast.  Or, err, slow.

I’m focussing on 10,000 steps at the moment.  I suspect as the weight goes down and the legs get stronger, I’ll be able to speed up my apparent turtle pace.
