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.

You've got to start somewhere, right?

Up before the sun today and out the door – Wasn’t easy, but I did it – I’m very scared after my run that I have once again created an unrealistic goal for myself – but this time, I will follow through with it – I covered just over 2 miles -- Most of it was walking and when I did get it up to a trot, my pace was embarrassing  -- not even considered a run, I’m sure, in many peoples’ eyes.  I am in big trouble but have to start somewhere –  These meds have knocked me back again – I am so out of shape, but I’ll figure it out.  It is going to take a lot of dedication, discipline, planning, and honestly luck to accomplish this, but one way or another, I’m going to finish this marathon in October – I just have to.

  1. Rich- Everyone has to start somewhere. I am just as scared as you are. The other day I drove 26.2 miles to see from what to what would be 26.2 and I about had a panic attack. We can do this!!!
