About Me

My photo
Austin, Texas, United States
I'll make you laugh, or break my neck trying. This is usually accomplished with daily bouts of swimming, biking and running. A former "chub-a-holic," I got fit and healthy the good old fashioned way and went from a mid-pack athlete to top age group runner and triathlete. I'm a Writer and USAT Level 1 Certified Triathlon Coach. I guess that makes me part Tina Fey and part Jillian Michaels. Visit my coaching site at www.fomotraining.com

What a Difference a Decade Makes

Me in 1998 at my going away party just a few weeks before moving to Austin. I'm the one on the left who takes up 90% of the picture wearing the sweet acid-washed jean jacket.




Fast Forward almost ten years....








Just mere seconds away from being passed by super-stud James, but not without a fight...but definitely without the extra 50 pounds I carried around.
