A Little About Kevin

My parents always encouraged me to be an active kid.  I can recall being involved in tennis, soccer, baseball, flag football, gymnastics and basketball.  I am not saying I was the best in each of those, but I did get a participation medal!  That commitment to an active lifestyle has stayed with me into adulthood.

But let’s be clear, an active and well-balanced lifestyle has not been easy.  I can list a dozen things that have gotten in my way over the years.  Often times I am my own worst enemy and can easily talk myself out of anything.  In 2002, I made a commitment to invest in myself and knew that I needed to make my health a priority.  Casual running, yoga, sand volleyball and softball have kept me going.  I also started to get some 5K’s under my belt and two years ago I did the “Warrior Dash”.  This was a crazy experience and one that I will never forget (the picture to the right is proof).  Running through lakes of mud and pits of fire proved that I can do anything I set my mind to.

So, here I go!  My commitment to myself is that I will train and be a participant in the 2011 Bank of America Chicago Marathon.  And guess what…I learned that I will get a medal for finishing.  Add another one to the trophy case!

By way of this blog, I look forward to capturing my journey so that it may entertain and inspire.  Thank you for your support!
