William New Orleans Jazz Half Marathon

BENEFITING: Children's Hospital

EVENT: 2013 Jazz Half Marathon and 5K

EVENT DATE: Oct 12, 2013

William Takewell

THE STORY:

So fun fact, this is the first half marathon that I will ever run. Another fun fact is that since January, I have been running and working on my own personal physical fitness. I began 2013 weighing in at 348.4 pounds, and as of today, September 15, 2013, I am down to 289.2 pounds. 

While I am more than excited to run this race to benefit Children's Hospital of New Orleans, I am also pretty excited to run this race because I will be physically able to as a result of a lot of hard work, patience, frustration, and generally just being extremely hungry... ALL OF THE TIME. 

I am so appreciative of the help that people have given me this year with encouraging words. Any time that someone has said, "William, you look so skinny!" I I have been encouraged that much more to continue on my weight loss journey through running and encouraged not to eat my way through 300 chicken nuggets and a gallon of honey mustard.

It has really made a difference in my committment. Please help me run this race and encourage others like me who need the motivation to get moving. Any amount helps, and it will benefit an amazing cause in Children's Hospital!
