Hit up the bike which is getting much better now for 1.5 hours and then hit the water for a good 800 meter swim. Starting off slow and building up the distance. Throwing all excuses out the window tomorrow as I head to the College Park rec around 8am. That means waking up early. Full day ahead of me with rec then weight training class and then swim and calculus. Somehow I have to throw a bunch of food in between all of that.. bahh i'll figure it out. Let the weight training begin!! I really am amping up the weights this year with trying to do a Tough Mudder in April in PA. Let me know if anyone wants to join our team for that it's a 10-12 mile obstacle course and teammates help one another through it.
I used to weigh 375 lb. Mid July 2010 my grandfather passed away from complications with diabetes. I saw first hand what I was going towards. It was not pretty. In August of the same year I began this journey to lose weight and become more fit. Many don't know this but at first it was a journey to try and play College Football. (I know a long shot) Over the months of running and gym workouts I found a love for running and cycling. I combined that love and did my first Triathlon in June 2011. With that I pushed to see what the limit was. I have run more races than I can count, 5k's, half marathons, marathons, and Ironman Arizona. Doors have opened in my life that I never thought possible. Moving back to Maryland I trained as an EMT/Firefighter along with becoming a terp at UMD. There I joined the Maryland Triathlon team GO TERPS!! In the Summer of 2014 I will be joining others on a bike ride called the 4K for Cancer from Baltimore to San Francisco to help raise money for the Ulman Cancer Fund For Young Adults. Today I weigh 245 lb and life is good. This is my journey:
