About this Journey:
Yes, at one time not so long ago I was 285 lbs...now I am an endurance runner and love the trails!
I wasn't always a runner, in fact I loathed running. I considered myself more a cyclist and was pretty active until my mid-twenties.
Then, as with most, life happened. I married my beautiful wife. Then our three children were born over 6 years, two years apart. Over this time, I grew to 285 pounds.
Something needed to change. It was my wife who suggested us begin running. We first started with a couple of miles and within a year I was registered for the Surf City Half Marathon. Since then, we have been running marathons and the trails together. During this time, I lost 90 pounds, I love running, and can really call myself a cyclist.
I am a happily married father of three, runner, and cyclist. We live in the Bay Area with Mt. Diablo in our backyard. We are a running family with my wife and I running everything up to 50K and our daughters and son running 5 and 10K distances on the trail and on the road.
We love the trails and are exploring them as a family.
