“Running is a lot like life. Only 10 percent of it is exciting. 90 percent of it is slog and drudge.”
– Dave Bedford, English distance runner who occasionally put in 200 miles a week in training
GOOOOOOAALLLLL. Nah, this isn’t World Cup Soccer.
Many of you have been asking about my crazy night time running regimen. Well, I finally reached my goal to lose the 30 pounds I gained since I got married 16 years ago. I’ve always said this training and running I’ve been doing wasn’t about me. It isn’t. It is about my wife, my mother,my mother-in-law, my aunts and my cousins who have all had breast cancer. I run for these women and donate each year to the Carol Franc Buck Breast Care Center based upon the number of miles I run. Well the weight loss and conditioning originally were just a side result of my runs, but when I found my cholesterol to be high, I turned it up a notch. The picture below is the result. The move from a 36 inch waist to 30 and the loss of 30 pounds and a well managed cholesterol level were my main targets.
- 20-30 miles of running a week
- The ‘Lean Track” of P90X exercises twice a week
- 8 classes of water a day
- 1 cup of coffee a day
- Oatmeal with coffee for breakfast 6 days a week
- Removed all sodas from the house

Congrats! I’ve been admiring your crazy runs for months now.
(btw, I’ve dropped ~15 lbs. since March with a similar running regimen)
That is absolutely fantastic, congrats. Sure wish I could be that disciplined, but I’m not.
