About

The purpose of this blog, if there is such thing as a purpose for a blog, is to detail my daily training sessions.  I will be training for 10Ks, Half Marathons, Marathons, Sprint and Olympic Distance Triathlons.

In addition to my training sessions, I will also post recipes that I have tested.  These are recipes that I have either created myself, or that I have modified from other people to meet what my dietary needs are.

I will also add in my thoughts on cloths, shoes, hydration, supplements and other areas of interest.

I supposed you are asking why I am doing this?  Well, about two years ago I weighed over 280 lbs.  I have always been heavy (or husky as my parents said when I was growing up).  Bottom line, I was fat.  I was a complete physical train wreck, and was death waiting to happen.  My knees always hurt, and I had no energy whatsoever.  I also had some heart issues, and who only knows what else was wrong, so I knew that I needed to change.  And change I did.  I started exercising regularly, and eating right.  As a result, I have lost over 90 lbs, and I am exercising regularly.  My knees, although they still hurt, feel so much better than what they use to.  I feel better, and I have so much more energy.  If I can do this, anyone can do this … anyone.  All I want to do is to be able to help … So ask me, and I will help all that I can.

  1. High Greg,
    I just started a blog here ”how to truly live” and came across yours. We have some similarities. I have competed in 7 triathlons including a ½ distance triathlon and hope to do many more. During the height of my alcoholism, I weighed 268 lbs. I had liver damage, was on high blood pressure meds…the works. I was watching a show about triathlons while I was still a drunk and I thought to myself “I wish I wouldn’t have wasted my life. I will never be able to do something like that. I am too far gone”. Fast forward many years and hardships. I too lost about 75 pounds, got into shape and ran my first sprint triathlon. Since then I have went back to school, earning my Masters in Sports and exercise Psychology and train at least 5 days a week. Anyway, sorry for the long post. It’s just that I know exactly how your accomplishment feels. It is awesome when we accomplish something we thought was impossible.
    Good luck and train hard!
    Paul

    • Paul,

      That’s awesome … I applaud you for your effort. That’s great, and I’m glad to see that you are still into the sport.

      Congrats and keep up the great work,
      Greg
