John C Harris   Fat Slow Triathlete

It is my mission, and the mission of Fat Slow Triathlete, to promote the healthy participation in endurance events regardless of current fitness level. I believe with proper and appropriate training, nutrition, and motivation, that everyone can complete, and even compete, in long course events. My desire is to work with people who are new to the sport, new to working out and training in general, or may be returning to a sport after many years of sedentary lifestyles.

Bio

On September 2nd, 2013, I turned 50 years old. As with most people these days I do not feel 50. It is shocking to me to think I am in my 50’s. I look in the mirror and do not see a 51 year old man. I have very little gray, and the gray I have is in my beard. I have a full head of hair. I have no wrinkling. The man looking back at me cannot be 51!

But, alas, he is … And this is where my concern for friends and family come in …

At the age of 46 I was 303 pounds. Something clicked one day, and I decided that I was not going to be 300 pounds anymore. My younger brother, Michael, who has always been active, said it best to me once. “If I am going to die young,” he said. “It will not be because of something I could have prevented.” As I stood looking at myself in the mirror that day I understood what he meant. At this point we had both had our cancer scares (mine was thyroid, his testicular). Not only were my thyroid meds out of whack, my T level was 180.

After changing my eating lifestyle to No Sugar and No Grains the weight started falling off. In addition my energy levels shot through the roof, and I am finding my body is recovering from workouts, even long strenuous ones, much faster.
