I have run three warrior dashes, tough mudders and 6 spartan races inculding the trifeta last year. I did all these races while being fat. The lowest weight before a race was 243 last April for the Las Vegas super spartan. Yesterday, I ran a warrior dash with my family and I weighted in at 265 and with 35% body fat. With that being said i can say that i was not out of shape, there were plenty of time that I would pass other runners that were a lot skinnier then me. You might be wondering why I am telling you this? The reason, I am tired of being fat and my eat anything lifestyle for the last twenty years has cought up to me, I have been recently told by my doctor that I am diabetic with type two. It is time for a change, NOW!
