I used to weight a lot. Now I run a lot.
Hi, my name is Brandon. I am a husband and proud father of 2. My family lives and plays in Anchorage, Alaska. When our daughter was born in December 2009, I weighed 290 pounds. I decided right then and there that I needed to get healthy for my kids, if not for myself.
On January 1, 2010 I did the stereotypical thing and started on this journey to becoming healthy. In April 2010 I started running, having never run a day before in my life. I started just because it seemed like the thing to do – a good way to get outside and get some exercise. I never thought I’d run more than a mile or two at once. Somewhere in there I fell in love with running. And the rest, as they say, is history.
