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:

Haven't posted in a week..

Been super busy as the last week went by. Food was cheated on but workouts were not skipped. Had a few issues with the bike today but nothing too crazy. Aero bar fitting this Saturday to get ready for the upcoming tri season I can't wait. I thought I would post and update, the weight has not really shifted too much. 2 Pounds have come off overall and i'll add another picture here to the weight loss journey. Weight training is really paying off and push-ups are actually fun :).

Looking at my next marathon to run, hopefully this summer but I have to coordinate with my tri's and other priorities. Ottawa with my friend Mike? Possibly... Fun day tomorrow and hopefully some outdoor riding by this weekend. We'll see..

Don't judge me lol, starting to look muscular 243. 6 pack by summer? lol nope
