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 50 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 25 years with two great kids.

Other Information:
Fitbit - user - www.fitbit.com/user/2B36S3 - Please feel free to add me as a friend.

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.

Hit my first long term goal of breaking 35 minutes on a 5k on 9/20/14 - 3.12 miles in 35 minutes!

So happy to learn your 9 days with no added sugars or artificial sweeteners. Please contact me as often as you need for any support. FB message me if you want. The longer you go, it gets easier & don't be too hard on yourself if your not perfect the first 2 months. I was far from perfect the first 12 weeks. emoticon emoticon

I hurt my back doing a vigorous hulu hoop exercise with my 3 year-old granddaughter on wii. I have never had problems with my back but wow, did it hurt. My wife had to help me put my socks on. I ate pain pills like candy for 3 days. It slowly got better and in a little more than 10 days, it was mostly gone. I say "mostly" because I could still feel a small ache sometimes with exercise. To tell the truth (and I am 63) ..it seems to be all gone now, praise God. Be careful with the kettle weights and keep running/walking. it's all fun when you have your health.

thanks for mentioning the movie ABOUT TIME. I just watched the trailer and I'm off to borrow it from the library. Have a great day. emoticon
