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:

Thursday and Friday Fun

So yesterday I met up with fellow Annapolis Tri Club member Brian and we hit the country roads of Annapolis, Maryland. Did about 26 miles of hills and pain :) After which I felt so great with a beautiful 70 degrees out I decided to bike the 12 miles to weight training and then the 12 miles home as well. About 5 hours all together with cycling and weights. I would call it a successful Thursday. 

The top of a hill we should not have gone up! :)

Today after some well needed rest I hit up a 7 mile extremely tired run around campus. Just need to make sure i'm getting enough food at night and in the morning I guess. Oh well. Friday is date night and heading out for the night. YAY! Health Class tomorrow morning at the college followed by a bike fitting for the Aero bars and then the ATC social at Bike Doctor starting at 6pm.
