In January 2017, I decided to step up my game in regards to a healthy lifestyle. I was never a fan of running (hated it in the Army), but started doing it as a way of combating the cardiovascular issues that have plagued many loved ones and friends. Proving that we change over time, I have actually grown fond of running. This pic is from my first race (Missions 5K) in February 2017. I have participated in a number of other races since then, including a 10K. I don't see a marathon in the future, though!
