About Me:

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:

Simply could not pass up eating Subway for lunch today. It was right on the way back from health class where I had a nice 5k run and a custom workout thrown in by my DO LIFE buddy Andrea. Seriously, that was some challenging balancing stuff :) I got the chicken teriyaki like always and no cheese, wheat bread, cucumbers, and lettuce. I would say a successful meal at Subway. I couldn't resist the Februany $5 footlongs. I mean not to be like Jared and try and spokesperson it up but that was the best sandwich ever today, it really hit the spot. Tomorrow is the legendary Super Bowl Cheat Day. Hoping to get in 1-2 workouts in the morning and afternoon, probably a run and swim because I put the bike in the storage space because guests are coming over. If I do end up swimming tomorrow i'll have TWO coaches!! SWEET!!! Goodnight :)
