Orange County is blessed with many recreational opportunities, chief among them is the County Heritage Trail.http://www.orangecountynyparks.com/heritage-trail/ Returning from Hawaii I found myself on that trail jogging on a regular basis, which by June had become full scale “running.” I decided in June of 2014 to “go big or go home”. That meant one thing: I was going to run a marathon. Where better to try one: Goshen, NY of course. So I set my goal – don’t run a 5k (which is 3.1 miles I now knew), not a 10k, or a half marathon. Nope – it was GO BIG OR GO HOME. I was going to run the Hambletonian Marathon in Goshen that October.
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. View all posts by PlanetFitness.Fit
