I want to look good in my finish line photos.

Even though I'm always at the back of the pack (sometimes I'm last), I love completing marathons. Being slow doesn't bother me, looking "pudgy" does. Here's my finish line photo from the 2010 Dallas half marathon..

My wheat belly is hidden by my fuel belt & race number

My usual pre-race breakfast is (was) a big bagel and cream cheese. After the race I would usually have a big muffin waiting for me. I would spend the rest of the day indulging in wheat porn.

I'm lucky that I only have to lose 25-30 lbs, it could easily have been more.

I have several races scheduled for fall. My progress will be measured by how I look in my finish line photos.
