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:

Week 3 of this Blog

Out of Gel, need to replenish. What gets me through the long workouts, the 10 miles or more? This amazing complex carb mix :). On another note, Tuesday was of course weight training again, working the arms and upper body. I can feel myself getting stronger. I actually haven't lost too much weight I think it's due to the muscle i'm putting on. The waist is slimming down and i'm at the 3rd notch of the belt and pretty soon will have to go get new jeans but, the weight has remained the same. Hopefully if I build enough muscle for the up and coming tri season i'll be able to return to Disney some day and get this damn sword out:

 Legs weren't feeling the run today but setting out tomorrow morning for the normal Wednesday run with bike in the afternoon.
