Obesity is a slow moving health care Tsunami

The title of my page is paraphrasing the CEO of Novo Nordisk (manufacture of insulin and diabetes products).

This is my Spark page. I am a middle aged, overweight pretty ordinary guy who is trying to live healthy and be active. I was hypertensive. That is under control. I still have weight to lose, and hopefully that will come under control.

Hi, ACTIVE_AT_60,

Thanks for your comment about my SparkBlog "Ducks in a row". I ran in last year's MCM and really enjoyed it. Now that I know what to expect, I'm going to put a little more "oomph" into it.

Vinny C.

How goes it?

I have spent too long wandering in the food desert. I just weighed in this morning and I am above my starting weight from SP back in May, 2009. Time to refocus on diet.

On the plus side, I just finished marathon number 6, Columbus, in 3:45 and change, an 8 minute PR. I'm looking to drop 6 minutes to qualify for Boston.

Justy need to find that balance between nutrition and exercise...

How are things with you?
