All-Konkuring!
male, 49 years old, Newport Beach My name is Andy, I am a banker specializing in SBA loans. Single dad to 2 great kids both very athletic and I want to be a role model for them. I was an avid runner in my 30's but got out of shape and sedentary in my 40's. In early 2010 I got my bloodwork checked and my Cholesterol was 250 and everything was bad. I decided to get in shape, Slowly started running with pullups (I could do two), pushups and a few other body weight workouts. I found Konkura in September 2010 and got hooked. At the time I started I was 180 pounds and was 145 pounds as a runner 10 years earlier. I did a challenge or more everyday, it was a way to make working out fun and competitive. Slowly I improved. After a year I was running decent and had lost 25 pounds. My improvement continued I have stayed focused on maintaining a healthy lifestyle and Konkura is a part of it. Avid golfer with no time to golf, former long distance runner. I now also enjoy scuba diving having recently completed 10 dives on a magical trip to Bora Bora. I have been doing crossfit for a few months in addition to running and it has really improved my strength. In August 2013 after 3 years on this site I had my bodyfat tested in a hydrostatic test (dunk tank). At 49 years old I now weigh a full 30 pounds more than the skinny runner I was in my 30's. At 176 pounds I have 5.3% body fat. I am strong, fast and have great endurance. I will keep pushing myself and hope to keep improving myself and challenging others on this site to do the same. I have attempted at least one challenge on this site every day for more than 3 years and it has made a huge improvement in my strength. Sick, tired, on vacation, busy.....no excuses, I do something physically challenging daily.
Latest status: I just scored 22300 in the 2014 pull-up and push-up challenge (01:28 AM, 29 Jul 2014)
