That’s me in yellow, the 70s were long gone by the time I was in high school, but you’d never know from the short shorts they had us wear.

In my youth I was a decent long and mid distance runner. This was still the early days of the Internet so most of my times only made local newspaper print, some of which I have archived. Back then I was skin and bones, I’ve since bulked up yet most is fat from excess calories, especially the Slovakian can of beer I’m drinking as I write this. Back then I could eat a ton then and it would burn off of me. I remember laughing at the older adults with pot bellys, saying it would never happen to me. And here I am about to order a cheeseburger with fries.

Let’s hope I can my prior accomplishments to help me get into better shape.
