Um, it's later.... And the pics are?

So what are you doing to celebrate/reward yourself? New running shorts, new camera to take that "after" pic? Don't make me ask if you're getting a mani-pedi...

LOL....I just realized there weren't too many pics of my former self due to low self esteem and big 'ol gut.
I hated seeing pics of myself, I'm sure ya'll can relate..I'll have to check my archived photos.

As for rewarding myself, I signed up for another 5k run this Saturday-chasing that runners high

nice job, thanks for posting pics. You look very vascular. Are you taking l-arginine?

Ya, thanks- It feels kinda weird posting pics of myself, whatever...I went from size 38 pants to 32 and my shirt size was XXL and now Mediums fit nice
and no, I'm not taking l-arginine, the only supplement I've been regularly taking
is 1200mg tab of fish oil every other day.

I've been trying to eat clean as much as possible for the last year or so...except for the occasional round of Heinekens...

LOL...Thanks for all the kind words. I just got back from running another 5k race and I'm felling great!
Beat my previous time by 30 sec- I know it's not blazing fast, but I ran it in 24:24 and finished 10th overall. Small turnout, but I still finished in the top 10- woohoo!

And now I'm off to do some Salmon fishing
