First blog post

Saturday, July 05, 2014

Ok so this is my first blog post. I'm basically doing this to get the points for it but oh well could be fun.

A little about myself. I'm a married medical student currently studying for my level 1 board exam. I gained about 50 lbs the first two years of med school due to poor eating and sitting in a class room all day then studying in the evenings and little to no activity.

I enjoy hiking, backpacking and camping. Before school I walk/ran a few 1/2 marathons and my wife and I are currently training for one in January. I recently got into swinging kettlebells at the recommendation of some of the guys I did martial arts with back in college.

Ok well back to studying...
