Hi yall! I am a 51 year old male in San Antonio, TX. After a bad EKG, I was lucky enough to find the movie Forks Over Knives & have been vegan ever since (April 19, 2012). Within a couple of months, my cholesterol went from 247 to 140 and my wife's went from 297 to 148.
My wife & I are both active & are members of a run group. We just finished two half marathons & a 35 mile bike ride. I'm a member @ Gold's Gym & am 15 miles from finishing my 2012 goal of running 1,000 miles this year. Last years' goal was to run a marathon, which I was fortunate enough to complete in Nov '11. I'm taking a look at the 2013 goals now, and would like to focus more on weight training.
Even with all the running, I've still got way too much body fat and so I've come here to learn, make new friends, & meet new goals. I'm looking forward to it!
