1. Welcome, new readers. My name is Ben.
In December of 2008 I was an obese, depressed, despondent 22-year-old. On Christmas Eve, my grandmother asked me if I was happy with my life.
I wasn’t.
The next morning I started this blog as a promise to myself and to her that I would find that happiness she was wondering about.
If you feel so inclined, feel free to catch up from the beginning, novel style. Or here’s a big ol’ batch of some of the highlights from the past three years of blogging, running, losing some pounds, and finding myself again.

    Welcome, new readers. My name is Ben.

    In December of 2008 I was an obese, depressed, despondent 22-year-old. On Christmas Eve, my grandmother asked me if I was happy with my life.

    I wasn’t.

    The next morning I started this blog as a promise to myself and to her that I would find that happiness she was wondering about.

    If you feel so inclined, feel free to catch up from the beginning, novel style. Or here’s a big ol’ batch of some of the highlights from the past three years of blogging, running, losing some pounds, and finding myself again.
