Be a Sponsor, Make a difference…



Pro Development Team (FFCA PDT) uses cycling to spread the word about our professional rescuers

suffering chronic to terminal illnesses, especially those that can be

attributed to exposure during the months after 9/11. First

Responders everywhere are at risk for health issues that don't go away.

For many it’s a chronic cough or…

50 pounds

Posted on March 15, 2010 at 11:30am 0 Comments

Sometime on Friday I hit 1100 miles for the year. I am about 3 weeks ahead of last years 1000 mile point and by April 9th I should have 1500.


My weight has fallen to 197 and the goal is 180 by June 1st. The cool part of this whole thing is I will be 50 pounds lighter some time this week, of course that depends on my mileage and how many cookies I eat!



This is a huge water mark for me as I have had a hard time breaking down the 200 pound barrier. That finally…

A year ago I began the journey to get myself fit.



On Jan 8th last year I was 245 pounds, or a little more, honestly Im not exactly sure myself... the scale was not my friend, so I didn't tend to visit it very often.



I have blogged on my weight loss several times, so Ill be brief on this part.



I truly needed the weight loss. Diabetes, Heart Diseases, Cancer, Pulmonary issues all run in my genetic family tree and I was well on my way to joining the 70's… Continue

The fat guy hits 200... or how I lost 45 pounds and lived to tell about it

The MNCG between Texas and Alabama marks a big day for me. It is the 1st anniversary of my quest to be a fitter, happier, healthier firefighter, dad, friend and person.



On January 8th 2009 I started eating better, working out (very slowly at first) and taking the supplements that have helped me fight the urge to binge on chips, fries, pizza, cake, etc. They have also given my body the nutrition I was not getting in my diet (not on a… Continue

What a year 2009 has been. In January I decided to get off my rear end and get back in shape, and 40 pounds and a couple thousand miles on the bike later, I am almost where I want to be.

(resting HR 55, BP 110/70, and cholesterol sits at 155)



Things changed on a more drastic level in March when my beautiful wife informed me we were having a baby in October! Now I know, I already have 4, how drastic can another one be?… Continue

Well, it's not OK to be a Vikings fan anywhere! Just kidding, just a little bitter over our former savior:( I would venture a guess there are a few more Viking's fans around in that area of the state than just you. MN proximity and all. They have an awesome team this year with all the old vet's and the new stars they have. Out played the Pack in all aspects!
