So when I started my diet in 2013, Allison and the kids and I were at Disneyland.  I asked, “Can you diet in Disney?”  The answer was “yes”.  We go to Disney far too much (the kids and Allison actually go a lot more than I do), but here the kids and I are back on “Hyperspace Mountain” in 2016, nearly three years after my diet started.

I love this picture for lots of reasons – my oldest is having fun; my youngest is being his typical goofball self (he also has the highest GPA in his class so his goofiness knows its boundaries). The best part though is the kid in the back of the picture.

Three years ago I would have to squeeze into Space Mountain seats.  Now it’s just a lot of fun to go with all the energy I need to enjoy my family. IMG_2416

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.
