Richard Hubbard was once over 350 pounds. After a doctor's physical and finding out he was pre-hypertensive, he decided to make changes and avoid medication. Over the course of a year, Rich lost the first 120 pounds of his incredible 150 pound weight loss. He ate healthy foods based on Dr. Joel Fuhrman's book "Eat To Live". He was mostly plant based, but switched to completely plant based in September of 2016. He also became a vegan in the process as his compassion for animals increased. He credits bodybuilder Robert Cheeke for influencing his decision of going vegan. Rich aspires to be a vegan bodybuilder and is planning his first half marathon this year.

Preparing For the Half Marathon

My half marathon is coming up quick. It's just over three weeks away. I signed up for the Fairfield Half Marathon on June 2nd. It's been a lot of work doing the training, but I think I'm ready.

Before I started training, I said I'd love to complete the half in 1 hour 30 minutes. That was unrealistic. I'd be happy if I can come close to two hours. However, I'm not so focused on the time I finish. I really just want to complete it.

The NYC Eat Well Stay Well One Day Immersion

I first learned about Dr. Joel Fuhrman back in 2012, when I was first started my weight loss journey. He had an enormous impact on how I ate back then when I started and it continues to this day. Although I follow all the plant based doctors now, I credit Dr. Fuhrman for opening my eyes to healthy plant based foods.

I still eat his recommended GBOMBS foods (greens, beans, onions, mushrooms, berries and seeds) along with a variety of other plant based foods. The GBOMBS foods specifically provide all the essential micronutrients you need to live a healthy life.

It's Official, I'm Signed Up For A Half Marathon

As many of you probably know, I've been blogging about doing a half marathon this year. A few weeks ago, I finally signed up for the half marathon in Fairfield, CT on June 2nd.

I am excited about doing it, although I haven't yet did a run for 13 miles. The furthest I've ever run was last year, when I did a 10K at the Litchfield Hills Road Race. For that race, I came in at like 1:17. I always strive better but I was happy with this time, considering it was my first 10K.
