After watching that show "Fat & Fatter" again last night and finding out that half the population of the state is obese. I figured I had to do something, anything...Just do my part to help Mississppi walk away from the cliff of obesity and here it is...


Every 1st Saturday of every month starting THIS weekend!...

"Run around the Capital" every 1st Saturday of the month @7am

For those of you who are willing to fight obesity in Mississippi, whether you're overweight or not, come down to the Old Capital building downtown this Saturday. We are going to run/walk that entire block that the Old Capital sits on, 2 laps(to start). There's 2 straightaways and 2 hills(2 big ones on either side of the Caiptal). As people get their stamina up and weight down each month, add 1 lap or as many as you can handle. the minimum is 2 laps. You can run or walk. JUST GET DOWN HERE! You don't have to wait around on me or anybody, I'm setting this up so people can just do it, get it done and get on with their day...You want Progress?!.. You want excitement?!...You want familly fun?!...you want to burn calories and fat?!!...You need motivation?!!...Well here it is! You have NO EXCUSE not to be healthy now. Parking should be free in the area since it's Saturday. If not, pay it. a couple bucks won't kill you.

We are going to GET UP!..GET OUT!...AND GET FIT MISSISSIPPI!


SEE YOU THERE!!!! RUN AROUND THE CAPITAL!!

----------------------------

*Disclaimer: This is NOT a Flash Mob event, meet & greet, or a Social gathering. It's just a neutral site setup for people to go to safely in the city and run/walk and enjoy life....and lose weight at the same time.

Math lesson for the day:

34% is not half. Just saying.

Well, NOBODY showed up to the 1st official Run around the Capital. Not that I was expecting a huge turn to begin with, but at least 2-3 people could've came out besides us...NONE.... It was just me, my nephew Jimmy and his dog Sundowwn. We ran/walked 3 laps and packed it in.

Oh well, maybe next month , people have a whole 30 days to build up the courage to burn that fat and get motivated.

SEE YOU IN MAY!!!!... the 5th to be exact.

If this is the only place where you advertised, then I'm not surprised. Only a few dozen or so people regularly peruse this thread, and those are scattered all over the place. I, for one, am in Chattanooga, and last Saturday I put in 8-hours at work because of a deadline this week.

But good luck for May.

Gossip and rumors spread fast in Mississippi. 12 people on this forum can spread the word to 1200 people in 12 nanoseconds in Mississippi even if they don't have a computer.

I told at least 30 people myself offline. just out and about.

Put the excuses aside and let's Run around the Capital!!!

See you in May!!

I'm in great shape but don't let that discourage you, just think of thinner times when Krystals and Stamps Burgers were a luxury.
