Summer has finally arrived, yahoo!!! Thank you for viewing my profile. I lost 60 pounds in 9 months... Nearly two years later I managed to keep it off!!! I am now in training for my first 5K run, and plan on participating in a cycling race in the near future. My folks now call me a "work out freak." I guess it is better then the alternative. So here I am, another year older, and a little more gray hair to show for it too. I thought that once I graduated I would have more to devote to my personal life. Unfortunately things do not always turn out the way you planned. I do enjoy exploring new places and meeting new faces. You'll find that my friends and my family are a very important part of my life. In late Spring through early Fall I enjoy walking around town, cycling through local parks on my Trek bike, or traveling somewhere interesting by car. During the winter months I like to relax, and always plan in advance a trip to a warm weather state at winters' end so I can remember what Summer really feels like. Warning!!!! I can be a bit shy at first, but that will pass once you get to know me. Overall, I hope I can find that special someone I have been looking for.
