SURPRISE! I decided to start running!

Where else to start running than paradise.  I had been walking since June and occasionally would take a few steps at a harder pace but in April of 2014 we went to Hawaii. 5,000 miles away from home I decided nobody could laugh too hard as I started to jog along the Ko Olina waterfront about 25 miles outside of Honolulu.  There is a 4 mile or so waterfront part so I sent out of my hotel, put one foot in front of the other, and started running.

Yes, Brendan, your father is jogging.

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.
