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).

Over the years as I lost over 150 pounds, one of the crutches I relied on was running.  I have realized that I used running to cover up some of my bad eating habits.  I have always said, I never at any time ate perfect.  I would eat sweets here and there, eat pizza on weekends and sometimes instead of a cheat meal it was a cheat weekend.  The weight would still drop because I made up for it on the road while running or in the gym exercising.
