              SD Safari Park Half Marathon


              This picture was taken about 2 weeks ago at the Safari Park Half Marathon in San Diego. I am now about 125 lbs and in great health (not to mention completely sober for 3 1/2 years!!). I am so grateful that running has given me this new way of life. It's pretty freakin epic. I'm currently doing a 90 Day Body Overhaul to get in even better shape - I'm chasing that ever elusive ab definition. Wink

                Wow.  Just wow.  When I need to remember how great running is, this is where I come.

                2013 Goals: Run more. Smile while I do it. Complete 2 marathons in a year. (1 down, 1 to go)

                  This is me during my first marathon in 2010:



                  From one of my marathons last month:



                  Ironically, I have not much (less than 5lbs) between one and the other but I have lost from a Size 12 (2010) to a Size 6.  I cannot complain.

                        Edit: I forgot to mention that I gained 40 lbs and got "old"  in the years in-between these two photos. I woke up one day at age 52 and decided to get off my butt and do something about it. I weigh exactly same now at 58 as I did in the 1986 photo, and wear the same waist-size pants again.

                        And the two of us again, 2012:

                        Consistently Slow

                           The pain that hurts the worse is the imagined pain. One of the most difficult arts of racing is learning to ignore the imagined pain and just live with the present pain (which is always bearable.) - Jeff

                            Cecil great pair of pictures.

                            Well at least someone here is making relevance to the subject. - S.J.


                              That's awesome, Cecil!

                                Love it, Cecil!  I will have to do that with my daughter!
