"On February 22nd, 2014, I ran my first 5K ever with the Cantrell Center. Before this race I've always been afraid to participate in public activities involving fitness. In my mind I felt as if my efforts would be a joke to everyone. Due to my weight, I thought nobody would take me serious. During the Cantrell Run to Lose the employees made me feel welcome and excited. I felt as if I belonged regardless of my appearance. Since the Run to lose with the Cantrell Center, my mindset has changed. I've lost 60lbs and come completely off blood pressure medication. I eat healthier than I ever have in my life. I feel more alive than ever. Thanks so much Cantrell Center Warner Robins for embracing me and encouraging me in my fight against obesity!!!!
