L'Chaim!

A few weeks ago, I talked about changing my blog name. Formerly Fat Running Guy just didn't seem to meet the bill any longer, especially since I've broadened my activities way beyond running and being Formerly Fat seems less relevant every day that I move away from that guy, in body at least.

Thank you all for your suggestions. Seems that the right name was right in front of me -- L'Chaim! (Thanks to Pat for pointing that out.)

L'Chaim is how I end each post and it really is the essence of the new and hopefully much much longer life that I've given my family, friends and myself.

The picture on the new masthead on the left is from 2004 at Mt. Kilauea, HI. The middle is from the St. Michael's Metric Century in September. The one on the right is from this past weekend.

L'Chaim!

Me too. I think you need to go back to Mt. Hulio, or whatever it's called and retake that picture. You are a true inspiration.

L'chaim!

Awesome blog and body make-over! I think the new name for your blog is perfect.

Erin said...

Wonderful choice. It's something that drew me into your blog the first time I found it - your outlook on life, embodied in that phrase.

Awesome Jeff. As someone that has known you for more then 25 + years, I can honestly say I have never seen you look better.
Love the new blog look too.
