Letting it all hang out. Embarrassing!

Who’s got handles? I’ve got handles… and there’s NO LOVE where those come from!

Ouch… 5’9″, 184 pounds.  That puts me at a 27 on the BMI chart.  Though my bodyfat is in the lower double digits (about 13%), being this heavy is NOT very healthy for my endurance sports endeavors; no joint will last forever and the hips, knees, and feet will wear out faster when you’re heavier!!  I had my personal best times for triathlon and marathons when I was weighing in at about 165 pounds and that was almost 20 years ago.  I’m pretty confident that I can get there with this vegan lifestyle… actually, I think I can even do better!

The initial stats are out and they can only get better from here.

25 days until my 1/2 marathon.

145 days until Ironman Santa Rosa.
