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:

Back to Old Habits

So my new habits weren't working.... too many late caffeine filled nights throwing drunks out of bars and heading straight for bed. Somewhere along the way after completing my Ironman I got lazy and felt on top of the world. With a vow to myself to never go above 300lb again I hopped back on it tonight for a late night workout. 3am gym time is the best time.

Everyone makes a compromise and another compromise and sooner or later you wonder where 10lb went. Less than 6 months to go before the 4K and it's time to revamp to 2 a days once again. Nationals in 3 months and Chesapeake Man in 10 months. Back to this blog, back to the salads, back to the gym rat life, and back to the good decisions.
