My Goals:
this year it is all about finishing the half, full, the ultra...so next year i have a target....i have ambitious goals like boston and 100 miles etc but lets walk before we run ...oops sorry no pun intended.....i quit smoking 6/1/07 and will never smoke again

My Program:
right now walking and jogging and several fitness workouts to finish losing weight and hopefully be running again instead of the walking/jogging

Personal Information:
i started this journey at 273 pounds but just signed up for spark (at 225lbs) because i want to find positive minded people that hope to accomplish goals like marathons or even just a 5k and if it is local or virtual I will try my best to be a true friend supporting unconditionally

Only those who risk going too far, can possibly find out how far they can go....
