So my son rubs my tummy and tell's me I need to start running again. What more motivation do you need than that when your 6 year old tells you it's time to exercise? Today is 1/5/2010 and I am writing this to remind myself what or shall I say whom is the reason I want to get healthy again for....My kids!

I basically took 2009 off using my newborn baby girl as the excuse as to why I didn't exercise. Told myself my wife needed me to be there for her to help out and all. While that may have been true to some extent there is no reason I couldn't have found the time to do what it is I know I need to do to get myself right. My son wants me to be healthy for him and daggum it I am going to do just that.

I finished this program on Sparks called C25K in late 2008 and felt so great in running a 5k. That is where I feel I need to start again this year. So let's see how it goes this time and Lord willing I will enjoy the same successses now that I did then. I'm looking forward to hearing from my fellow sparkers again whom always help motivate me.

1/5/10 vs. 7/16/08- 252#'s
8/16- 246#'s
9/13- 243.5#'s
9/24- 239.5#'s I couldn't wait to weigh. Yippee another 4 pounds.
10/15-232#'s 7 more down. Yeah!!

My Goals:
New Goals as of 1/5/2010.

My 1st goal is to complete the C25K again.

Second goal is to run my 2nd 5K by Spring Break in March.

Third goal is to get back on the sparks page of those sparkers whom removed me during my sabbatical away from sparks.

My last goal is to do some sort of triathalon by year's end. I don't care how short or long it is as long as I get the shirt that says I completed it in 2010.

My Program:
My latest venture is to do another 5k by retraining for it so that I can break 30 minutes and then prepare for a sprint tri. I will start up and continue to play Tennis and softball as well.

Personal Information:
I am a father of 3 awesome kids and have been married for 10 years this coming April. I live in Corinth, TX and work in Mesquite.

Other Information:
My kids are my life. My son allows me to relive my sports youth thru him and I love it.

My 3 y.o. daughter is just now starting to endear herself to me and I think I going to be in trouble now.

My newborn daughter is walking now. I love coming home to her and never forget to enjoy the moments I get to spend with them while they are young.

    It is a good thing you stopped by, because I was really thinking I was going to have to come over here and give you a big whoopin'! HAHAHA So Spark is not blocked at work is it? ;) Sure think I'd see you around here more often.... hahahaha
    Riley didn't race this past weekend, we were at a national supercross race and that track is about 5x the size he is used to on his dirt bike. LOL
    BMX is going so-so now. The problem is there are not enough kids in the advanced level his age, so he is always bumped to the next age/level and those kids are big and fast. :( He keeps up the best he can, but he's not liking it. Hopefully a few more kids his age turn intermediate soon so he has some riders to compete with again! Right now we are getting lots of practice.
