Little Rock Half Marathon, 2005. I finished vomit-free, but not pain-free.
Me with Jan, my wife and best friend
please, HELP ME STOP THE INSANITY!!!
I'm badly in need of a spark; looks like I've found the right place. I'm a 38-year-old journalist living in northwest Arkansas with my wife (also a new Spark person) and our small menagerie. I'm a five-year member of Weight Watchers who lost 80 pounds between 2002-04, but lack of due diligence led me to gain 40 of it back. Now I'm ready to get rid of what I regained, and then some. WW is a great program that works, but I need a change of scenery, less obsession with numbers and a greater focus on overall well-being. My wife found this site, encouraged us to do this together and we're excited to be a part this community!
* Get down to a lean, mean 215
* Break 90 on the golf course
* Become a proficient guitarist
* Complete a triathlon within the next year
* Learn to speak semi-fluent Spanish within the next year
* Get our home and yard looking sharp
* Get/keep finances in order so we can afford to travel the world, one awesome vacation at a time
I've just begun the suggested weekly meal plan from this site. For exercise, the plan is regular yardwork, walking and a basic strength program that I can build on gradually.
I have a variety of interests, primarily sports, music, reading, animals, comedy, travel, history, archaeology, psychology and skepticism.

I've added you as a friend. I hope you aren't looking for The Voice, because I am afraid I sing off key.
Your page seems pretty empty, are you rejoining Spark?
