10K Butte to Butte

Yesterday I signed up for a 10K on July 4th. Although I will be walking it, I am still pretty excited because I have never done anything like this before. I am sure I could walk 10K today if I had to so I don't expect the training or event to be too difficult, but I did print out a schedule that I will do in preparation.

I feel like I am becoming the person that I was meant to be! I have been stuck in this prison of fat for so long and now I am starting to break free. Instead of beating my head against the same wall and doing the same things over and over, I am actually trying something new. Now I'm banging my head against a new wall! Just kidding...

I did have a huge conflict when I filled out the 10K enrollment form though. What size shirt do I request? I wear a 2X now, but will probably (hopefully) be closer to a 1X by then. I don't want to jinx myself by ordering a smaller size and then not being able to wear it. I also don't want to get a 2X that I will never be able to wear again. Ack! What do you guys think?

1x although you will probably be a large by than but wearing a 1 times too big t-shirt is ok for exercise. This is the last time i will tell you this by the way! lol
