I am a 34 year old male from Chicago, Illinois. I graduated from the University of Colorado in May 2006 and started running in the spring of 2007. Since then I have gone from a max of about 220 pounds to my current weight of roughly 175 lbs, and more importantly have developed a true joy and passion for running.

Hot in Texas........ around 100 degrees. Also, I didn't realize, but there is an Air Pollution Warning in North Texas, saying 'Limit Outdoor Activity.' Also, another 100+ degree day today (Weds).....might have to run on the treadmill tonight.
