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:
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!

Ha! Yes my husband was raised Catholic.

As for whacking my step-mom with a kettlebell, it's fun to imagine, but now that my dad is gone I don't have any contact with her. I'm not even friends with her on Facebook. =)

Thanks for your comment!

Thanks so much for the Goodie! All is well with me. Life is changing quite rapidly, for the better!!!, so I'm trying to deal with all the changes as best I can while keeping my status quo. My phone wont let me change status updates like I used to, or maybe its just the user :) I'm getting ready to post a blog about the current changes so look forward to reading it :) Hope all is well with you! Keep up the hard work - you are worth it!!!
