The picture from the half marathon I ran

I did a half marathon the other day (10/24/10). I can't really say I ran it because I am so frigging slow. I came in 1722 out of 1791. I honestly could not care if I came in at 1791 - I finished. I am happy with that. But, I just got a link to the race pictures. And, it killed me. I honestly had no idea I was that friggin big. So, it's time to get my butt in gear and get to a healthy, comfortable weight.

My Goals:
I'm 45 now. My true, long term goal, is to do the Bermuda Walking Marathon for my 75th birthday with my wife and kids. I figure if I am healthy enough to do that at that age, have my kids want to do that with me then and pay for the kids and their families at that time, I will have had a damn good life. But, my immediate goal is to get healthy enough to make it that long. Oh, and to wear a "large" shirt instead of a 2XL.

My Program:
Trying to figure that out.

Personal Information:
Originally from Philly. Been in Atlanta since 1996. Married 20 years with two great kids.

Other Information:
The Nuts! Nuts! Get 'em! has been the "rallying cry" for me and my family. It's from an old Far Side. It's a bunch of squirrels in a huddle chanting that and it says before starting their day, squirrels must first pump themselves up.

Thanks for stopping by my post! I actually am a "ritz cracker" person lol but you're right about the cake... it shouldn't have been in the house.. my DH insists on being left to his ways if I expect his support, so I leave it alone for now, until he's ready to join me on this journey to fitness. In the meantime, I haven't and promise not to touch it!!! emoticon emoticon

Thank you so much for the support brother! I hope the summer has been good to you, a bit warmer than last year but not too bad so far. I added you as a friend and subscribed to your blogs, nice to have some more Atlanta support. Have a great weekend!
