Take a look at last year.....
Yes, I was doing the backstroke and yes I felt like I was having a stroke....
I weighed 230 lbs
After this race and looking over the times and seeing that all the 60+ years olds beat me. I knew that I could do better. To be honest with you I never really though that I wasn't a big guy. You only really realize it when you lose the weight and see old pictures. So at that time loosing weight wasn't a goal. I just wanted to get faster!
Fast forward to 2010....
I weight 169 lbs and feel great. Having the goal of getting faster had some other positive side effect one of them being losing weight. To date I have lost over 60 lbs!!!
Also here are my times from this year Turkey Tri.
Finished: 6Th overall and 1st in my age group
I improved my time by 36 Min's!!!
The best part is that my Mom and Dad did the Turkey Tri. It was their first Tri and they did so awesome. I am so proud of them and want to let them know I love them!
We didn't get very many photos but I made a video. Enjoy!
