In July, 2013 I remember this guy FLYING on the treadmill next to me in Disneyland California. I was around 260 LBS. I thought, dreamed . . . maybe next summer when I step into the same exercise room I can be 175 LBS. Maybe. I doubt it. Maybe. Well, I was back at the Grand Californian, but I wasn’t 175. Wasn’t even close. It was 154! What a difference a year makes. So that year, that hotel, a year later, I stepped on the treadmill and RAN. It wasn’t quite 7.5 MPH, but it was running, and it felt great!
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
