2 Years and Still on my Journey

It's been 2 years since I began my Journey of Fitness. I figure since I have been so lax in my blogging that I ought to give a little update.

1. Weight has not changed much. I am hovering between 229-231.

2. I am busier than ever with lots of stressful things happening--thankfully, I am better able to deal with it because of my fitness level.

3. I gave a talk to a local TOPS group. I had a lot of fun doing it, and I am thinking about marketing myself to give more of these talks. My basic message is that of striving to live fit by eating healthy and exercising.

4. In Dec. I ran a 10k in 54:49 at a 8:50 pace. When I signed up, I thought I might be under 220 by the race, so I didn't sign up for heavyweight category. If I had, I would have taken first place in that division. Doh! Also, My oldest daughter ran the 5k, my wife walked the 5k, my second daughter ran the 1 mile kids race, and my 3rd ran the 1/4 mile kids race. Seeing my family get involved was much better than running the race in under 9 minute miles.

5. My oldest and I are running in a race this Saturday called the Frozen Blueberry Race. Brrrr!

6. I think I am insane for signing up for a marathon. I am in my third week of training and already ran a 15 miler. This is going to be tough!

7. I think I might have S.A.D. but I still can't bring myself to buy one of those outrageously priced lights.

8. I miss blogging, and I do check other sights out, but I just don't seem to have the time to blog regularly these days. I hope that changes soon.
