Here's just a glimpse of the events that occurred in the last 3+ months. I will then elaborate in my upcoming, consistent posts.
In May, I managed to cover 92.5 miles, and ran Stomp The Monster 5k with the love of my life!
As for June, I began slowing down with only 60 miles, and ran Run For Dad 5k, which happened to be on Father's Day.
By July, I slacked off with a measly 30 miles, but I ran my first mud race Merrell Down & Dirty Mud Run 10k!
It's August, and I'm starting to train seriously again. So far, I've done 10 miles, and signed up for a half marathon in October, and another 5k in September.
There you have it people.
Back in the running game!
I'm glad to be home.
P.S. Here's the final edition of the collage as promised:

Where am I going with this, you may ask?
Back in February, specific running goals were set, but never met. You can thank the "lovely" spontaneous nature of life that's been thrown in my direction. The entire universe seems to be trying to sabotage my life, Initially, weakness took control, and was leading me down an empty hopeless road.
There are much greater and braver challenges people face. How can I simply quit? I must get back up, dust myself off, and continue on with the journey by creating goals that will be met.
For the month of April, my goal is to at least meet head to head with February's miles, and hopefully surpass them.
This past Thursday was Day 1 of my running goal, and I have already accumulated 6 miles. Only 7.8+ MILES to go!!!

1. Did I run the NYC 2009 Marathon?
Yes! It was amazing, and I will elaborate on the entire experience in my upcoming posts.
2. Push up, and Pull up challenge?
I've been off my game, but I will be back in no time, and I will reach my goals!
3. The Lakewood Running Club?
I started a running club a little while back, but have yet to get more people involved, and in this weather, forget about it.

My ultimate goals:
As for my present goals, I'd like to be able to do 50 push ups to out do my previous 30, and 10 chin ups to out do my previous 5.
I also want you all to know, how I was never able to do those exercises. One day, I just decided that I wanted to be able, at the very least, complete " 1 " push up & chin up... And here I am today very much beyond that point. So, if I can do them, anyone can. You just have to put your mind to it, and tell yourself that NOTHING is impossible! There will be a number of times you try, but still aren't able, but that does not mean you should quit, because one day, out of nowhere, you will suddenly perform the exercise, and you will feel so incredible about yourself!
SO, don't give up, be strong, and don't let your body tell you what you can or can't do!

By that time, I must be able to run 26 miles without passing out half way to the finish line.
Until then, I'm going to train my ass off, and run in other various 5k, 10k, half marathons, etc.
As you can see, I'm telling the world, which means, I'm going to be blogging my training from this past tuesday (which is when I officially started training for the marathon), till the day of the race, November 1, 2009.
It's going to be really tough to train for, so I'm bringing everyone along for the ride.
I'll jot down my training detail from food to exercise, running, racing, and ranting about the whole experience.
There will also be videos of my improved push ups, chin ups, and other exercises.
Have a great weekend everyone!
Take care and Tough it Out!

I've been getting several requests for more fitness videos and my exercise/diet routine.
So I decided to create a blog where I will post my meals, exercise regimens, photos, and videos.
