I hit a big milestone this weekend. I’m down 75 pounds. When I started at the end of last July, my goal was to drop 100 pounds. I didn’t set a timeline, but I was hoping to lose at least 1-2 pounds a week. I wanted to make it a realistic pace. I didn’t want to […]
Looks like I’m taking a month off from my running. The doctor said he can’t see a fracture, but the symptoms and descriptions are very similar. He wants me to take a month off from impact exercises so I don’t get a full fledge fracture. I guess I’ll be hitting the elliptical and exercise bike […]

Second 5K is in the books. It was a night time run which was different. My official time was 38:38. Nearly 4 full minutes off my time from the end of October. My beautiful wife and my girls came out to do the 1 mile fun run and cheered me on during the 5K. It was […]
