FAT Summer!

Hey Kids,

Soooooooooo, After winning the NJ Marathon I told you how Eric and I immediately ate Garden State Parkway Burger King. This was the catalyst for a month of inactivity resulting in this:


Then Boston:


Joe Joyce Lunch did not help either:

Joy Joyce Lunch became a weekly event where we would pool our lunch money and Joe Joyce would surprise us with a very delicious take out lunch. As you can see it was very popular with the ladies.

Waiting for JJ lunch looked like this:


You basically would gorge your self of a variety of High fat, sugar and fat and salt and fat; smile as your inner child laughed and reached for 3rds then spent the rest of the day on the verge of sleep, just sweating out the shame. It was pretty awesome.

Im not even going to mention the Ice cream sandwiches intervention.

Basically my inner child turned out like:


I feel flabby, tired, generally sick to my stomach all of the time and bloated. Besides that Im great! hehhahahah! 100% diet and bad habit related!

So it is the end of June and I am getting ready to begin my NYC Training on July 5th! All kidding aside I did take a mental and physical break from running for a while very much on purpose. Probably not the smartest or healthiest way to do it but I was honestly afraid that if I kept going hard after the NJ Marathon I would not only hurt myself physically but I would begin to hate running, and I figured I earned it.

I have been moving (running) over the past couple of weeks and I am mentally ready to get going again. I picked out my training program for NYC and have some great events coming up this summer.
