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!

Thank you for reading and commenting on my blog. Thank you for "putting me" in January. That visualization alone was like a "wow" moment. Time just flies by but imagining myself in January knowing that I wont have to be preparing for another semester, I wont have to shift my schedule around or save up to buy textbooks.... wow. Just wow. I wont have to buy textbooks again. I wont have to drive to class. I wont have to leave early from a midweek get together because I have to study for a midterm or a final. OMG Thank you so much for putting me in January.

Thanks for your comment on my blog! I'm glad you enjoyed it. And I will have to check out that movie. Your golf story captures exactly what I'm talking about in my blog! When we approach our tasks with joy and relaxation, we can achieve a certain kind of serendipity.

Thanks so much for the comment and loved your sense of humor. I just may follow your advice in regards to giving the daughter $200 to help off load "my stuff". Lol
