My Goals:
I want to get back to being fit. I need to lose about 40 - 50 pounds. My goal is to get BMI in range for some mad ripped abs. Update: sadly I was unrealistic in what I really need to lose. I have dropped 80 and have 20 to go. Spark has helped me learn what a real healthy weight is. Thanks spark!

Disney World Goofy Race in Jan 2011. I am signed up for it. You run the half marathon on Saturday and then the full marathon on Sunday. You get a Donald Duck medal for the half, a Mickey Mouse medal for the full, and because your are soooo goofy for doing both in a weekend, you get a goofy medal for completeing both. The goal after this is to go to Disney land in Cali and run the half marathon in Sept. 2011 and get a coast to coast medal for doing it all in the same calander year. Update: Signed up for the Rock N Roll half marathon in VA Beach Sept 2010. It will be a training run before Disney! Complete the half on Sept. 5th 2010 - 1:40:54. Rocked it!

My Program:
This is what I am doing:

Well, I now have a running coach. He has me on a very specific running schedule. I am lifiting 4-5 days a week depending on my run days. Slow build of miles running each week. I am at 20 miles a week now and will build to 40 miles a week by July. Then my coach will re evaluate and build from there. This is a build up to my nexy Marathon in Jan 2011. Update: I am running 40 miles a week building to 60+ miles a week by Nov. Started a second job to help pay for the Disney trip so I am unable to do my weightlifting which I miss but it is only for the summer.

Personal Information:
37 Y/O ....In 2008, my five year old daughter said daddy "you need to quit smoking." "You have to stay with me forever." I tossed the cigs and haven't looked back. I will do anything for my four girls (wife + 3 daughters). I am getting fit for myself as well. I want the six pack I had in college and plan to get it back one day!

Other Information:
Kick it! No more excuses. The only person making you unhealthy is YOU!
