Healthy and Getting Healthier

I started running just over five years ago. At the time I weighed 220 pounds and lived a very sedentary lifestyle. While my diet was not horrible by American standards, it was not healthy either.

Then I was diagnosed with high liver enzymes and fatty liver disease. I replaced the remote control with running shoes and the cheeseburger with spinach.

At last check, I now weigh around 167 pounds. And, today, I got my latest blood test results and all my liver enzymes are normal. At the age of 45, I am in the best shape of my life.

However, I am not done yet. I have only begun.

So, in order to celebrate renewed health and to keep moving forward I registered for the Cherry Garcia 5K on June 23rd…

adtthe American Discovery Trail Half Marathon on September 2nd…
