Similar things happened when I trained for my first half marathon. I began at a non-svelte 204 and finished the race at 211. You think running a half marathon is hard when you're in shape, try running one when you're a freaking beached whale.
In short, I need to stop running in order to lose weight. As it turns out, no matter how far you run, you can't eat a bowl of ice cream every half-hour and not pay a price.
