On December 27, 2014 Allison and I left the kids with my brother-sister-in-law and sister-in-law in Hilton Head where we were all vacationing and she and I drove to Jacksonville, Florida for the Jacksonville Bank Marathon. We arrived after 1 AM with the need to be at the starting line by 6:30 AM. Suffice to say we didn’t sleep much. Allison was also running the 5k so it would be a nice day for both of us. Jacksonville was a flat, nice course through nice neighborhoods. We had a nice time. I would love to run it in 2015.
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
