The Journey from MyFitnessPal to Here

Today is Moving Day. I am abandoning my blog at MyFitnessPal because it won't work anymore. Yup, the software gods hate me.This is where my contribution to cyberspace will live for now. It is really a  tough day. I had a streak going since 2011. Never missed a month. I logged on that site everyday. I made some life-long friends and had a lot of laughs.

Man, my life changed during that time. I lost almost 100 pounds. I started running. I beat heart disease, survived melanoma, prostate cancer, and colon cancer. I ran the Boston Marathon, wrote a book, and ran the 6 World Major Marathons.

I got divorced and later met the love of my life. I beat cancer again and again. I kept running when I didn't feel like it. In 2018 I contracted a debilitating and painful neurological condition which causes severe headaches. The lay in bed with the lights out all day kind.

Now I can't work, and I play a little guitar to challenge myself. I run a few days a week. I go to doctors appointments. My blog and website are way out of date, but here I am.

My old blog is here.

My really old blog is here. I can't believe I have been doing this for over 14 years - filling the internet with a bunch of meaningless blather.

My return from the dead is now here.

So what's coming up?

  • More tests
  • Another book
  • Summer
See you real soon.
