When I was in the military, I had to run. There was no joy in this running. Running in formation, running in the freezing cold, singing cadence ("tiny bubbles, in my beer..." still gives me chills thinking about it). Or, worse, when our squad would have our impromptu three to... Continue reading

It's a time honored tradition, family members meeting the successful runner at the end of a great run. Maybe it's a small gathering within a small town watching Mom finish her first 5k. Or maybe it's the Richard family, greeting Dad as he finishes the Boston Marathon on April 15th.... Continue reading

When I finally started losing weight, I did so by getting control of my diet and running. I worked myself up to 5K road races and, eventually, 10K races. My pace improved, my confidence improved. I mentioned in an earlier blog that I have a buddy who does obstacle style... Continue reading

A few years ago, at my heaviest, I needed to "take stock" and figure out why. It seems like an easy thing to do on the surface, really...not eating well and not exercising. Right? The problem is "it" goes a little deeper than meals and working out. I quickly started... Continue reading

Things were going pretty well with my fitness journey. I was running (a lot), I had made a lot of positive changes in my diet. I was losing weight, feeling good about myself. The issue, for me, is that I simply was not becoming as fit as I wanted to... Continue reading

...and tackle them all in one day, yes? My little fitness journey started with baby steps. Not eating at Wendy's at 1am. Not eating a full dinner and then chowing down on a 1 pound bag of chips ten minutes later. Walking at lunch time. Going to the gym, and... Continue reading

Four years ago I was over 100 pounds overweight. No one believed me. "You can't be THAT big" friends would say. It's amazing what a XXL polo shirt, un-tucked, will hide. Especially when you're 6 foot 2. Allowing myself to become this large was a little (a lot) of a... Continue reading
