There I was, overweight, huffing and puffing, trying to pull my kids up the hill so that ;they could have another sled run. As I looked at the other fathers, they seemed to bounce back up the hill. Those other kids must have had double the runs that mine had that day. That night, as I hid in my usual spot, behind the shed, lighting up my cigarette, I had a vision. It was there, that I knew I needed to change. That would be the last night I had to hide to smoke, the last night I had to huff and puff my way back into my house and get into my sweat pants because my jeans were too tight. I had enough. That was the start of my road to fitness. Like everyone, I had to start out slow, but continued to work every day to get better. Iwas determined and trained hard knowing that my hard work would pay off. Today, I am training for my 3rd marathon, have completed Spartan Beast races, half marathons, countless 10K’s and first place finishes in modified CrossFit competitions. I am proud to say by living the Fit Life I have “Found My Fit” and I’m determined to never lose it again.
