I like to see my friends succeed, and one such friend is Miguel Carrasco, a techie whom I had the privilege of meeting during my days at Microsoft. He’s a techie whose life changed in April when he noticed a tingling sensation in his right hand that spread to his entire arm and was accompanied by a tired feeling. These symptoms led him to the hospital, which in turn led him to a health epiphany.
If you ignore the “axe murderer” face that Miguel’s making for the camera, you’ll see a guy who weighed a trim 170 pounds in August, and who does a 5K run four times a week. This is a dramatic change from the old Miguel circa April, who was 45 pounds heavier and couldn’t make a run five houses past his own.
He’s decided to share his fitness journey on a new blog called Smart Ass Fitness. If you’ve been thinking about making a change in your life and getting into shape, you might find Miguel’s new blog helpful and inspiring.
And remember the golden rule of getting better at anything: consistency beats intensity!
