I thought about the title for this post somewhere between mile 6 and 7. I thought to myself, “You’re close to a sub 1 hour time. You can do it. Just push yourself”. I haven’t been here (time wise) since…

Walking through Queens at night

Walking through Queens at night

When do you get 70 degree weather in February? I don’t think it happens too often. At least I don’t think it has happened in my lifetime in New York. Tania and I took to the streets of Queens to…

Vegan bean/quinoa guacamole burger with yam fries

Veganism for almost 2 weeks

Veganism for almost 2 weeks

Tania and I have been eating clean (vegan) for almost 2 weeks now. I have to say it’s paying off. My fitness really took a turn for the worst recently. I was about 220lbs a few weeks ago, and now…

Don’t wait till New Year’s – Month 12 complete

It has officially been 365 days! Today completes my year-long journey. I kept thinking about this day many times along the way and never thought I would get here. I’ve tried in high school but only managed to stay focused…

Almost there

Almost there

It has been almost a year since I first began working out. Time sure has flown by. I remember when I couldn’t do much in the gym and I wasn’t capable of running very far. I tried to recreate this…

Month 7 is done. Seems like the months are flying by now. The strange part is my body is not progressing at a rate at which it used to during the first couple of months, but the good part is…
