Thumbs up Im fat! AND I can run!

Yes Im fat. But I can run!

My running is improving so very well! Im slowly working my way up, and currently cant run that far. But I sure am improving! Ive ALMOST gotten to where I can run a whole block without stopping. For me, that is a totally awesome victory! Im so proud of myself because at 145 lbs when I was younger, I couldnt even run as far as I can now!

I started out in January huffing and puffing, just walking around outside. Now I can run!!!

Congrats! I can't WAIT to run. Ithink I'd really like it. My left knee gives me trouble sometimes, and my boobs are way too big to try to run now, but maybe when I get down to where you are I will give it a shot.

Congratulations Mug!

Lottie -FYI, I have several friends who are, shall we say, gifted in the boob department who wear the Enell Sports Bra to run in (and for other sports too, I believe) and say that they don't have any problems.

I looked on enells site but they only go up to a DDD/F I believe and I am an H.

But once I can fit into one I will definitely invest!

I'm a G and I ordered one awhile back after hearing how great they are. I ordered by measurement and got what I thought was the correct size, but once I got it on I found that there was still quite a bit of bouncing going on. Drat!
