So what do I want to accomplish with this Blog?
Here are my goals:
- Hold myself accountable by putting my goals out there for others to see and thus not let me back out of easily.
- Make friends
What is in the name? Well anyone who knows me, knows that I have never and will never be able to sit still, I just can't do it. Thus what I do with my excess energy and over active mind is my gift to use to shape my life into what i want. I could be someone who can't sit still and devoted my life to playing Call of Duty with people online till 4 AM but that would do little for my health or my marriage. I need to use this as a tool to push me to accomplish my goals.
So with that said I don't want a blog just about running, I want a blog that appeals to those that loathe running but share my desire to stay healthy. I want someone who just got diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes to come read my blog and say hey if that guy can do it then i sure as hell can. Thus I will share my running/race goals, I will discuss my cross training tools, my nutrition along with any other topic that I choose to with little or no concern about how I can tie it back to a central theme.
Now, those that know me also know that I have no filter when I talk and that means that I am sure to offend some of you some of the time. So if you are offended easy, take this a warning, but more importantly take what I say as an opportunity to start a discussion. Oh and to keep things PG-13 if I need to use foul language (sorry sometimes "gosh darn it" isn't strong enough to get my point across) I will use the vocabulary from one of my favorite movies Johnny Dangerously (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0087507/) where to stay away from the dreaded R rating they used "Fargin Icehole" instead so as not to offend, but also not loose the intent.
So welcome to the show, keep me honest and join in....
I will add posts shortly about my race plans, workout plans, nutrition, cross training etc,
