I am a very lucky man – I’ve got an amazing wife and am the father to three wonderful kids. Lylli was born on Halloween in 2008, Gracie was born November 2010 and although she only lived for 17 months, she will remain as much a part of this family as the rest of us, and Mickey Gray, our first son, was born in June of 2012. I’m not going to say that life has gone exactly as I would have wanted, but it is a good life and I am determined to make the best of it.

This blog is an attempt to document my quest to become a dad that my family can be proud of.

Merry Christmas

Well the workouts are getting a bit tougher (pathetic I know, but you've
got to start somewhere). Last night was plenty tough, in my defense,
the streets were full of snow and that made it harder -- my legs and
calves got pretty tired at the end. I am on week four of the program --
last night I walked for a few minutes and then jogged for 1/4 mile,
walked for a bit, jogged 1/2 mile, walked a bit, jogged 1/4 mile, walked
a bit, jogged 1/2 mile, and then walked home. Felt great when I was
done, but realized that I've got a long road ahead of me. And to top it
off, I ate so much when I got home that I weighed more than I have in
awhile. That's not good considering today is Christmas Eve and the
eating has is just starting and I'm obligated to perform -- I can't let
my family and friends down -- I know they all double their recipes
because I'll be there. Oh well, this running will shed the pounds
eventually, or I'll be the most in shape fat guy you'll see.. Merry
