My hear rate rests at about 39, I almost never get sick, and I feel really good compared to a year ago when I weighed 202 pounds (currently at 175, and was at a racing weight of 168 in September).
I finished (well) in the Everest Challenge and I aim to win it for 2012 in the M45 category— and I have a plan for doing so.
