(Pictures in all my posts from now on are #throughglass or via my Galaxy S4.)When I was fat, sad, depressed and thought I would be fat forever, I never knew believed in motivating people or books, speeches, etc. Then one day my Mom invited me to a motivating seminar that was being hosted in Chicago. Back then when I was more stubborn than I am now, I was like, "Yuck, I don't want to hear rich people talk down to me and make me buy their stuff." I eventually I ended up agreeing to go and little did I know that this was the beginning of the new way I was going to approach the rest of my life.

Want to go run a 5K race this weekend? Want to run this half-marathon next month? Want to do this 10k? Those are the questions I have received over the last couple of months from some friends. My answer for each person, is "No, thanks." Why is that my answer? I am trying to stay away from races right now. I am completely restructuring my running and training routines. So what am I doing now? What am I training for? Good questions.
(I am also including some random +Google Glass pictures (#throughglass) I took during and/or after runs over the last week or so.)

If you are not following me on a social media platform, then you may not have seen that I am now posting videos on YouTube to give random Google Glass updates, announce giveaways and/or thoughts about how my training is going for my 40/40 event in March (more details in next post). Eventually I would also like to add motivational videos to the channel.
On December 7th, NBC Sports will be airing the World Championship Spartan Race in a 90 minute televised event. From what I have heard from people that have participated in this intense event that it is one heck of a challenge. I am looking forward to viewing this at home on that date to get a sense of how the top level Spartan Race athletes perform against the best of the best.

I had thought about doing this photo slide video for over a year now. Then, I just kept putting it off and putting it off. You see for the most part I am not a "look at me" type of person. I have always been a quiet and shy guy (trust me I used to be).
