When I began the blog, my goal was to reach 25 pounds by March 15th, I am very close to this first goal. I am at 20 pounds with two weeks to go. The last five will be tough as I am going on vacation on March 11th. I am headed to Colorado for a ski trip. I am heading out there with Dana, we will be meeting Andy Moore his wife Leslie and their two and half year old Sydney. Nathan Hill (Opie) will be joining us as well. I am hoping the physical demands of skiing will offset the fun that will be had.
With the goal in sight, don't worry all this is not my end goal. This was just a nice starting point. I have two goals in sight. I will be competing in a Triathlon in Columbia in May and will need to be in top shape for this competition, then my YMCA buddy Andre has pushed me to join him in the Chicago Half Marathon in September. My ultimate goal is to get another 30 pounds off before it is all said and done. I want to finish my quest at about 190 pounds.
As promised last week, I am putting the link to my team and my profile page below for Relay for Life. Again this is a great cause, it will go toward ending the disease that is cancer. I am not great at asking for money, but if you have the ability I would ask that you contribute to this cause. When you read my story with cancer and especially Dana's hopefully it will inspire you to donate to the cause. If nothing else, join a team of your own and participate, you will find fitness wise you will gain much out of the adventure and the sense you will get from being on a team will be incredible.
