    One Year Anniversary

    That's right! One year. Amazing how time flies. Looking back I find it really wasn't that hard to take on. Just had to set aside the extra time and have the right gear. My commute is just under 15 miles and I do it in (usually) 45 mins. PR is 39 mins.
    Winter was the hardest part. Here in Colorado we had some damn cold days. My PR on that was -19 plus whatever the windchill was. That was crazy and I'm not looking forward to that this year. But I'll do. Figuring out the bus schedule to sag out helped. Thin line between being hardcore and being stupid. Got that one wrong once or twice.
    Sure there where days I didn't feel up to it but, once I got out there that all went away. To top it all off, I lost over 30 lbs. I started at 217lbs and by the end of the fall I was all the way down to 184lbs.
    Anyways, that's my story. Thanks for reading.

    -19? Wow. I think I'll just content myself with sniveling about the rain.

    I bet it feels good to be in shape, too!
