The first 39

My 39th birthday was the 28th of June.  It was quite apparent that my 40's were rapidly approaching, and I was overcome with the feeling that I needed to take better care of myself.  You see, the first 39 years of my life were not healthy.  I battled weight for a good chunk of those years, and I don't want to spend another 39 out of shape and unhealthy.  I started running a couple years ago so I was already on the road to fitness.  This year, I am going all in.  I am not doing things half way.  I am watching what I eat and working out.  I will be fit by 40.  So, this blog will document my journey.  You will see sweaty selfies, race pictures, workout logs, you name it.  I am going to be doing it.  Thanks for joining me on my journey.

This picture was taken in 2007 before having kids and before I started running.  I have lost 80 pounds since this picture was taken.  I have about 20 more to go.
