A few weeks after my first son was born, I found myself looking in the mirror and wondering how had I gotten to the point of losing my sense of self. I was exhausted from sleep deprivation and a too-long commute, overweight from “sympathy” eating during my wife’s pregnancy and not exercising, I decided that it was time to make some drastic changes. I wanted my son and future children to have a dad they were proud of…and I wanted to be around long enough to see them become parents themselves. So I laced up, stepped out the door and just continued putting one foot in front of the other, taking on one seemingly insurmountable challenge after another: one short (and sometimes labored) run here, one small life change there, one less extra comfort food everywhere.
I have come a long way since that day looking in the mirror. I now have three amazing sons, ages 8, 6, and 3. I have lost almost 30 lbs, have run a few thousand miles, and thanks to a new job I have much more time with my family.
