Here We Go Again!

"As long as a person doesn't admit he's defeated, he is not defeated - he's just a little behind, and isn't through fighting." - Darrell Royal

Well, once again, it is time to come up with the obligatory "where have I been" message. Truth is, though, it doesn't really matter. I am where I am. So...Here we go again!

I know there will be some that will say exactly that (while rolling their eyes). Shoot, I even have to resist the urge to say it. But, I know what I'm capable of doing and it is time to do it.

In a nutshell, I have 2 main races in front of me… Tower of Terror 10 Miler and 2013 WDW 1/2 Marathon. I know I have a long way to go to be "ready" for either race. But, I also know that I will not get ready by doing nothing.

I'm essentially starting from square one with weight and running. Last I checked, I'm right around 330 pounds. I haven't really run in quite some time, except for an occasional day every few weeks (if that).

So, I don't know who (if anyone) will read this. But I feel that I have to do this, even if only for myself.

Till Next Time...GET MOVING FORWARD!!!

Hey Byron! Remember me? I clicked on your blog - I think I read a few a long time ago. I've been doing 5K101 and finally can run 3 miles. My first 5K will be in Sept and I am planning to try a half marathon next year sometime. Have you listened to "Geeks in Running Shoes" (podcast) or read Bendoeslife.com? Both great! The podcast is more for beginners like me. Best wishes to you!

I'm still here - and we can do this my friend! I look forward to seeing you in January and crossing our finish line TOGETHER! I know you can do this.

I'm in the same boat - trying to get ready for Disneyland Half after several months of nothing but weight gain.

Keep it at!
