Been a while since I blogged. Here's an update....

Well, I've grown 8 inches taller since my last blog... What!? I'm just being silly. Sorry.

Weighed in today at 211.4 lbs! I've lost about 26 lbs sinc July. It's been really tough and portion
control remains a hugehallenge.

I'm training at a local gym who shall remain nameless because when I told a few workers there what I was training for they got excited at the idea of the gym jumping on board and helping in possible sponsorship. When I contact Andrea in marketing she shot me down cold. Saying it isn't in their budget. Really? Because one thing I suggested is totally free, by including my info in your emails to your members or even allowing me to put up some literature of what I am doing. Btw all free. Ok it's la fitness. They are the closest gymto me and it would've been great if they could've helped out. Anyways this isn't a bash lafitness blog. That's the next blog :)

So my training is going ok. I'm traing a couple times a week with a personal trainer at lafitness to help strengthen my weak back. And im back following Hal higdons novice marathon traing schedule. I'm slightly behind but was able to get to13 miles on the treadmill yesterday.

I've got my girlfriends publicist who is trying together me some publicity and my girlfriends agent trying to help me get the marathons made into a documentary. There are some great possibilities if some of this stuff could happen. I have to be careful not to get my hopes up too high.

Today I have cross training to do. And I get a rest day tomorrow. Instill hoping to get my weight down to around 200 by January. I've got 9 weeks from today. 9 weeks til the first marathon in Arizona.

I'm still looking for all the help I can get,soif you or someone you know can help get thewordoutplease let me know. Thanks!!

And please donate! Any amount is a huge help.

Best toyou.

Pilates!!! OUCH!

Had my first pilates class on Friday and am just about recovered. Its the kind with the machines. My girlfriend took great delight in my anguish and pain. (I'm so nice to her). My next class is tomorrow. Hope it goes well.

Figuring out these 12 marathons are a bit of a pain. My wish list is as follows...

(in no particular order)

Los Angeles
Las Vegas
New Orleans
San Diego

Because a few of these marathons are too close together I wont be able to do New Orleans or Washington DC. Im also going to have to skip Philly and San Diego.

Im working to figure out which ones would be good to do instead. July August and September are a bit tricky. Looks like Ill have to do much smaller marathons for these months.

As of now it looks like this...

Jan - Phoenix, Az
Feb - Austin, TX
Mar - Los Angeles, CA
Apr - Las Vegas, NV
May - Cleveland, OH
Jun - Seattle, WA
Jul - ?
Aug - ?
Sep - ?
Oct - Chicago, IL
Nov - NYC, NY
Dec - Miami, FL

I am already signed up for Phoenix and about to buy Austin and LA. Wish me luck. And please help spread the word. Trying hard to get publicity for this stuff. thank you.

I'm fat again. Not as fat as I was last time, but fat none the less. On July 1 two years ago I began losing weight (70lbs). And I did it in just over 8 months. I ran a marathon this past October and since then I have put back on about 40lbs. Food is an evil tempting bitch who I have a very strong love/hate relationship with. There's a lot of passion there.

So this past July 1 st (just a week ago). I went back to being a good boy. No bad stuff for me. I was at 237 ish and today I'm down to 230lbs. Down 7 lbs in a week. Hopefully I can keep it going because I have decided to run 12 marathons in 2012. I must be out of my mind.

I got some publicity in Chicago for the one I ran in Oct and hoping to get a lot more for next year. I'm trying to raise $144,000 by the beginning of 2013. That's an average of $12,000 per marathon. (is the theme too subtle?)

I'm in need of publicity. If you know someone or are someone that can help, please let me know. I can be contacted pretty much anywhere.

I already signed up for my first marathon in January 2012 in Arizona with my running guide, Janelle. She helped me in Chicago for the October run.

I'll be keeping blog updates here on a semi regular basis. So please come back and visit and let your twitter followers and facebook friends know.
