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:

Sunday Ride

35 Mile ride today in about 60 degrees around College Park area. I got lost in Bowie somewhere in Farmville who the hell knows. Found my way back to 193 and had the pleasure of passing cars on the way home on some of the longer stretches with the new aero setup. This was at Lake Artemesia right near campus as the sun was coming down. I stopped for a breath and just to sit for a sec and enjoy the scenery.

This weekend was great, hit up a triathlon social at Bike Doctor Arnold last night. Had a great time! Free Beer and food and door prizes with raffles as well. I ended up walking away with Sonic Wings for the back of the bike to hold extra hydration and other things for the longer rides. Something I really needed for Arizona and now can check that off the list :)

I'm in the back somewhere drinking it up.

And in other news... FINALLY my CLYDESDALE jersey fits properly. The guy selling it last year was telling me that I was crazy and to buy bigger but nooooo I went for the smaller one and now it fits race snug and feels great riding. Plus I mean who doesn't love a flashy jersey?
Bahhhh mirror picture :)

And now I EAT!!! CARBS CARBS CARBS.. and a lil protein
