I have repeated a consistent trend over the last four years that involves losing a copious amount of weight and then regaining it back. There's something that happens after vacation in August that gets me back into old habits. Last year is no exception. This year, I am determined to lean on my staff, gather smooth stones and a slick sling and face this giant.

As always, Debra is quite impressive. She really is a good runner. She's already doing 5K non-stop runs at 13mm (and faster by the end).

The last three weeks included some daily walks of 3 to 4 miles while completing 30+ before my trip. This improved fitness became a benefit as I ended up walking each day 1.5 miles one way to the convention center and then had a bunch of walking at the trade-show during the day. To cap it off, we went to Islands of Adventure and had a bunch of walking there. It was nice to walk with my colleagues without losing breath. I think I did fairly well for a hot week in Orlando.
Current Weight: 302 lbs.

Last weekend we were in Lynchburg, VA hiking Liberty University Mountain, and this weekend we found ourselves in Sanibel Island, Florida for our annual vacation. Vacation is so much more enjoyable when one is fit.
On a couple of the days, we took the first part of the day to run the beach from our resort to the end of the island and the Sanibel lighthouse. It's an even 2-miles one-way and makes for a challenging 4-mile round trip.
On a few of the days, we walked 6-miles (Bailey's Market and back).
It's always a pleasure when Dad joins us. The beautiful sunrise is a nice distraction from the difficulty of running on the beach sand.
Jogging in Florida can be hazardous to your health. This "little" (8-foot) guy was right next to the walking path that we were on. Thankfully Debra made notice of him (and increased her pace to 5mm) as I would have been knee deep in gator-mouth before I was aware.
Between beach and pool, morning jogs and evening strolls, our fitness facilitated the rest we needed from this vacation. Ironic, huh?
