Warrior Dash Update

Tuesday, April 27, 2010

​[Update at 8 p.m.: I just texted Michael Cramer to see if he was still in the hearing. He replied, just now, "Yes, judge is riling now. Event is on. We have to stage parking elsewhere though." More to come when he can call.]

Michael Cramer is the lawyer for the Warrior Dash Gang......supposedly the biggest concern is the amount of cars on the highway,(whatever). They will be cooridinating buses to get people and and out!!

I'm going to be disappointed for you. I sure hope they can find a way for this to happen. If not, then find another event to do.

tough weekend

Sunday, April 25, 2010

this has been a tough weekend for my calorie intake and exercise.

I played 36 holes of Golf on Friday which burned a great deal of calories for me, I really enjoyed that part. The hambuger, potatoe salad and bean for lunch weren't the best I'm sure. THEN for dinner I had bbq, come on, I'm IN Texas and we WERE in Glen Rose, TX, I had to have some Hammonds BBQ! I did eat the child's plate with sausage and ham, only had a few fries so it wasn't horrible I guess. I didnt get any other exercise on Friday becasue of the Men's retreat with them men from Church. Well worth it though, I got fed spiritually and that's fine.

I did get up and run 2.5 miles in about 25 minutes on Saturday morning, that felt great. I could have kept going, I just ran out of time. Breakfast wasn't bad calorie wise, lunch again was a hamburger though. UGH.

I have slowed down a great deal now though so it's all good. My first race is next sunday so I don't plan to to 2 aday workouts everynight this week so that I'm well rested next sunday for the warrior dash. I will hit it hard again after the race and shed another 10-15 lbs for my frame and leave it at that.

I think that's enough for now...

have a Great Sunday!!

    It does sound as good as that retreat back in Jan for me. There weren't the best food options, but the fellowship and activities more than made up for it.

Can't wait for next week at this time to hear about your Dash.

Stolen from a SP Friend - Chasing Dreams

Tuesday, April 20, 2010

I admit, I stole the first line from a SP friend and encourager!
Bill - I love the second part of your statement. CHASE your DREAMS and PUSH yourself to new challenges.

Thinking about this made me think about the following
That is exactly what I wasn't doing for the last 12 years and what's how I ended up a 264lb ball of flab! Totally unmotivated to do much of anything really.

Today I AM chasing my dreams of good health, my wife and daughters are fully on board too, I AM pushing myself to new heights and challenges. Spiritually I'm better off, health wise I'm better off, weight wise I'm better off, relationship wise I'm better off, I feel like a brand new man.

So Today - I challenge you to chase your dreams, whatever that might be...........

    Too often we forget the relationships and spiritual parts in this process. It's a great reminder to hear. Keep it going!!!

    I feel honored to be a part of this blog. All it takes is a little determination each day to achieve great things. Recently I'm not the person to ask how to lose weight, but I've lost plenty. I may also not be asked how to be the fastest on race day, but you can ask about my determination. It doesn't matter to me when I cross the line of a race or in weight loss; as long as I keep pushing on I'm winning.

Keep pushing on!
