|Introduction||My name is Arkady and I'm hoping to inspire you. I've had quite a journey to be where I am now. In 2006, I weighed 240 pounds with nearly 40% body fat. Tired of being out of shape, I decided to take responsibility for my own actions. In a nutshell, I cleaned up my eating, started to exercise, and surrounded myself with positive like-minded individuals. In the process, I lost weight and gained numerous health benefits including lower blood pressure and the ability to actually run around the block without the feeling that my heart is about you burst out of my chest. My goal is not to brag, but to inspire. During my journey, I discovered a hobby, which quickly became my passion. Running! With the help of my wonderful friends, mentors, and coaches, I have competed in many marathons, ultramarathons, triathlons. None of this happened overnight. It all started with the first step, then second, then third. I hope that you will find my blog inspiring enough to start taking action and make health and fitness a lifestyle.
