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:

Bad day in general but went for a run which quickly turned into a walk. I don't understand, do I now need imodium for 3 miles? WTF!!! 

 Anyways, to recover I just got the new vanilla flavor of protein. Matt chokes on the stuff (i don't get it). Everyone running or working out a lot per day needs a recovery routine. Mine is pretty simple. Workout - Protein Shake - Stretch everything out that I just worked on. Stretching and recovery period are just as important as the time you put into the workout. 

 Finally, might be moving the blog to it's own URL, more information on this in the coming week but hopefully move off of blogspot to my own website and turn this into more than just a fitness weight loss blog. Working on a whole schematic we'll call it of my whole journey from day 1 through present.

Grocery run, everything a guy needs nutritient wise to keep hydrated and refueled.
