Your life is now.

June 24, 2013.  The title of this post is a song by John Mellencamp.  It probably can mean different things to different people, but I guess what it means to me is live in the moment and make that moment count toward your future.   My future started June 24, 2013 with a wake up call.  The wake up call was a visit to a doctor and stepping onto that square thing that measures stress known as a scale.  It had been a while since I did that.  I didn’t like what I saw.  It was over 275, I will leave it at that.  For 5’6″, not good.

Living in the Hudson Valley of New York State, at age 40 (almost 41), I had a health scare and had to make serious changes in my eating and exercise habits. This is the story of how, I went from Morbidly Obese to being a Marathon Runner and ran 12 marathons in 12 months. After I ran several more, I did something I never imagined possible: I am an Ironman.
