My reasons to get healthier are in my pictures, I would like to be more active with my kids and someday my grand kids. I am doing this for me also, putting myself first for the first time in many years.

My wife and I are working together on our lifestyle change, we motivate and push each other to achieve our goals, between us we are down 145 lbs. I don't think I would have made it this far without her, THANKS HONEY(miamia7). We started walking on 2/21/08, jogging came ...

My reasons to get healthier are in my pictures, I would like to be more active with my kids and someday my grand kids. I am doing this for me also, putting myself first for the first time in many years.

My wife and I are working together on our lifestyle change, we motivate and push each other to achieve our goals, between us we are down 145 lbs. I don't think I would have made it this far without her, THANKS HONEY(miamia7). We started walking on 2/21/08, jogging came about a month later and it was much more walking than jogging, but it has just grown from there.

We are continuing to get healthy. I ran my first 5 k at the end of June 08 with a time of 31:13 avg 10:04 per mile then 6 months later on 12/31/08 my 5k time was 23:58 PR or 7:45 per mile a good way to end 2008.

2009 started off good, A Frigid 5k 22:58 or 7:25 per mile PR. The year started off good but a series if injuries pushed my training behind but I think I am finally back on track as of July and training is going well. I finished my half marathon in September 09 with a time 2:02:41. It was not without consequences, injured again. It has been 5 months with very little running but I feel I am ready to start my comeback. What I can tell you is take your time, I pushed too hard too soon is why I kept getting injured.

What is really great is Anne is actually going out and doing races with me, it makes it fun and she is doing great.

Many of you have inspired me along the way but the Rookie Runners team is amazing, what a great fun loving bunch of people. Thanks for the many smiles, motivation and especially the NM. (LOL)

I need to continue to drop the weight it makes running easier the lighter I get, especially on the knees.

It is amazing how much better you can feel getting rid of the weight and getting healthy, more energy, more mobile, more fun.......... life is getting better.

If you follow the program it is too easy, track, eat right and move a little.
