On Sept. 13, 2007, Greg Oden had surgery on his knee. Many months of rehab were in store for Mr. Oden. He has shown endless energy to get back to our team and I am very proud of him.
Shortly after the surgery, I promised that I would lose 20 pounds during his rehab.
Today I made my goal!
You might think that 20 pounds is nothing. It was difficult. I started at 189 pounds. 169 today.
Everytime that I went for a run, I had some sort of Blazer gear on. Everyday I was reminded that Mr. Oden was in there working hard. It motivated me to do so as well.
Last week, I ran the Prefontaine Classic road run in Coos Bay. I proudly wore my black Oden shirt. I did well too. 287th out of 1250 runners. It was a very satisfying day.
I know that Dave was running his Oden minutes. I'm curious, how did everyone else do?
