Hi, My name is Gary and I am 54 years old, married and for the last 7 years I have been trying to build a better and stronger me.
I enjoying running and swimming, weight training and yoga and biking.
I am a active triathlete and marathoner, and enjoy all lenghts of running.
I am a busniess ouner and am studing to be a CPT,
My goal for 2013 is to run another 50k race.
Grow my faith in God and trust he in His love.

May 18 2013 i am running in the Superior 50K Trail race north of Duluth.

May 12, 2012 I became a ultra marathoner, finished the Ice Age 50k in 7 hours and 24 min.

Running is the classical road to self-consciousness, self-awareness and self-reliance. Independence is the outstanding character
istic of a runner. He learns the harsh reality of his physical and spiritual limitations when he runs. He learns that personal commitment, sacrifice and determination are his only means to betterment. Runners get promoted only through self-conquest.

    Thanks for the reply back on my page on P90X3. I have started the program (well sort of - I am doing a running hybrid - so I'm not sure how Beachbody feels about that). So far I have not signed up at team Beachbody, as I was keeping my focus on Spark. Can you tell me a little bit about what being coached there involves? I know what I need to do and I love to exercise - it's really overeating that's the issue. What I really need is an accountability partner that I can notify at the end of the day that I met my daily commitments (tracked food, ate in range, and did my workout). But finding consistency in the Spark community is proving somewhat of a challenge. Anyway, any suggestions based on your Spark experience and also your Beachbody coach role is welcome...
