8 months ago I set a goal for myself to ride in the 2014 Smart Ride. It's a 165 mile bike ride from Miami to Key West along the overseas highway, one of America's most beautiful and scenic roads. I was overweight and so I enlisted the help of Peter Jackson and a personal trainer, Cory Davis, at Push Fitness
to get my diet in order and start the journey back to being fit and healthy.
I've lost 70 pounds. I go to the gym twice a week for a workout and amazing support from some of the best people I've ever known. It's not just Peter and Cory, the entire team at Push Fitness
encourages and motivates me. I ride my bike 150 to as many as 320 miles a week. I feel amazing and happy every day now.
On Friday November 14th, and Saturday November 15th I will join the Pride Center
's team, the Pride Pack, and hundreds of other people who will ride their bicycles or crew on this amazing ride filled with hope, filled with pride, and filled with the dream of a future free of AIDS. This year will mark the 10th year of The SMART Ride journey, I have set an ambitious goal to help raise more than the required $3000 because I believe what we do makes a difference (and because 100% of the money you donate will go back to the community).
I am Rider # 548. If you go to the Smart Ride site, just enter my rider # and (please) make a donation. You can also find my page on the site and donate using this link: https://www.thesmartride.org/participant-home-page/3128/
I have less than 3 weeks to raise this money. So if you are thinking you would like to support me, please donate today!
PS... that's me with Topher, Pablo and Murray at Score Nightclub
. Three great guys that also happen to be Andrew Christian models.
