Thank you my fellow MWers, especially DisneyDavidEMT, HMF, HMACIF, DreadPiratesRogers, MissMimi90, MissAriel33 and all of you support me as I rehab and get back into shape! This is from last week's Run to Save the Seals trail run. Next up is Pleasanton's Tri for Real Triathlon on 9/15 and then Half Moon Bay's Splash and Dash on 9/22. After these we are planing on going to the parks on November 8th for Veteran's Day weekend!

Congrats!!πŸŽ‰and good-luck!! Can't wait for u to be in the parks soon!! 😊 - CinderellE-79  1025.4 #180 10:11PM
Thanks, Jack and Jill are excited! Our AP's expire November 17, of course we will renew them! This will give us 9 days usage which still justifies it for us... - BombFrogFormerCM  1015.8 #183 10:16PM
Wow!! 9 days have a wonderful time 😊 - CinderellE-79  1025.4 #180 1:51PM
It's nine days total on the passes:  5 in April and now 4 in November... - BombFrogFormerCM  1015.8 #183 3:19PM
Way to go!  - TheDroidYouAreLookingFor  453.8 #482 10:18PM
Thank you!  I'm far from the fastest but it great to just get out and do something! - BombFrogFormerCM  1015.8 #183 10:42PM
That's what it's about! - TheDroidYouAreLookingFor  453.8 #482 11:20PM
Congrats my friend!  You look fantastic!!!  I think your more of an inspiration for me to get into the gym 5 days a week instead of 4!! - DisneyDavidEMT  2626.6 #50 10:20PM
Thanks, Doc!  I really don't go to the gym for long periods, I prefer to run, swim and now bike.  My runs and bike rides are all on trails so its great cardio.  I just do a dumbbell workout and crossfit train... You are probably stronger than I am due to my arm and shoulder.  It sucks that I'll never spiral a football ever again so I'll just keep swimming. - BombFrogFormerCM  1015.8 #183 10:35PM
I had a 300 lb guy collapse on me the other day....literally ON me. Made me realize I need to bulk up more! πŸ˜– - DisneyDavidEMT  2626.6 #50 4:21PM
I worry about you in the field, your calls are too wild for me...if I were cleared for duty I'd rather go check on an unknown device than deal with trauma patients... - BombFrogFormerCM  1015.8 #183 4:31PM
Oh no.. My job could NEVER be compared to what you did. Just like the show M.A.S.H..., you brave guys are on the front line, we just patch people up! - DisneyDavidEMT  2626.6 #50 6:08PM
The bad guys sometimes target medics, especially in your area of operation... I saw it on deployments, never realized it happened at home too. - BombFrogFormerCM  1015.8 #183 6:47PM
Wow!! If that's getting back into shape, were you the Rock before?!? Yay for you!!! You look great!! I will be in the park Nov. 7-10... I hope to finally get to meet your family!!! - 2BeignetOrNot2Beignet  1420.8 #121 10:25PM
Thanks!  In 2001 I was able to max my benchpressing on a smith machine at 2-3 reps of 405 pounds.  I tried to benchpress for my physical therapist last week and my max was 3 reps of 225 pounds and my arm still hurts.  Since I can't workout for strength I'm going for endurance big time!  I will DM as we get closer to driving down! - BombFrogFormerCM  1015.8 #183 10:40PM
You are my hero!! You just don't give up do you? I need some of your determinationπŸ‘. I have been going through health issues for almost 10 years now.. I'm too darn young to feel this old. My goal is to try to get to the Tink Marathon in 2015.  - 2BeignetOrNot2Beignet  1420.8 #121 10:46PM
Try some 5Ks near you, then go to a 10K. I've never done a full marathon but I thought the San Francisco half marathon was going to do me in with those hills. I think that after a couple of 10K you could do the Disney half marathon especially if you did it with a group of friends! - BombFrogFormerCM  1015.8 #183 11:01PM
Thanks for the advice! The kids go back to school in 8 days.. I plan to start walking daily and then hopefully progress into something bigger. My best friends are all runners and it stinks that I can't join them. I'm determined to move forward. It's the darn body that keeps letting me down.. I pray that I don't have any major flare ups. I was in the ER last week and I'm tired of broken! I want a new me 😁 - 2BeignetOrNot2Beignet  1420.8 #121 11:09PM
You're a brave, courageous man and I know you're a huge inspiration and great role model for your children. Yay for you! πŸŽ‰πŸ‘πŸ‘ŠπŸ‘ - DisneyGrandma  877.2 #210 10:43PM
Thank you!  I just try to be the best I can for my minis, especially Jack who is living with high functioning autism.  He loves to watch me do laps around the track and ride piggy back while I do laps in the pool.  My daughter Jill is priceless as she tries to do the exercises with me as I circuit train! - BombFrogFormerCM  1015.8 #183 10:51PM
So awesome! Good luck to you!πŸ˜ƒπŸ€ - Nala  375.8 #603 10:48PM
Thank you!   - BombFrogFormerCM  1015.8 #183 10:55PM
Right on! I really need to get back into running. I really enjoyed it...  - FrankyHLYWD  221.1 #41 10:52PM
I'm not a true distance runner but I do enjoy the trails, especially along the coast! - BombFrogFormerCM  1015.8 #183 10:56PM
awesome!! you can do it, πŸ’£πŸΈ!! - misschurro  6361.4 #17 10:58PM
Thanks HMACIF!  My wife thought I was crazy for trying to keep up my exercise on Maui, but it's easy when my mom jogs a 10 almost every morning and she's 68! - BombFrogFormerCM  1015.8 #183 11:04PM
Wow! I see where you get it from! I would have loved meeting her. Maybe next Maui meet up. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ - misschurro  6361.4 #17 10:13AM
My mom might be in Orange County when we go to the parks as she's celebrating Turkey Day with my brother who lives in Irvine. - BombFrogFormerCM  1015.8 #183 11:07AM
Then you have to go to Disneyland!! - misschurro  6361.4 #17 11:16AM
We're all rooting for ya! Can't wait to meet u and the kids in the parks! Keep us posted! - missariel33  2115.5 #72 11:01PM
And take care of those toes lol! - missariel33  2115.5 #72 11:01PM
oh the toes! yes!!! - misschurro  6361.4 #17 11:02PM
Thanks!  MW is such a great place! I got to know all of you and share!  I don't do Facebook but my wife laughs on how I hooked on MW!  Oh, Scotchie will be coming with us! - BombFrogFormerCM  1015.8 #183 11:06PM
Just when I thought my toes were healing...time to try a different brand! - BombFrogFormerCM  1015.8 #183 11:07PM
Yay scotchie!!!! Eek! - missariel33  2115.5 #72 11:11PM
This is fantastic! So proud of you! Keep it up! - Cinderella_Schnooks  3370.7 #42 11:03PM
Thank you MrsSchnooks!  I wish sometimes I still live near the parks, now that I'm medically retired I would go apply to be a CM again! - BombFrogFormerCM  1015.8 #183 11:33PM
Keep up the great work!  I am rooting for you! - DisLUVney  632.3 #320 11:08PM
Thank you!   - BombFrogFormerCM  1015.8 #183 11:34PM
We are all behind you (and you are motivation for me to get back to the gym "grind" so to speak--- Insanity here I come... again)! - missmimi90  2032.0 #76 11:49PM
I joke about this with my wife...I don't smoke, usually only drink with her dad (2 beers max) or have a good single malt whiskey on a nice foggy night, so other than coffee this endurance bug is my vice! - BombFrogFormerCM  1015.8 #183 12:01AM
I was wondering how Run to Save the Seals went for you since i remember you were going to do it. Luv your spirit. Cant wait for you to share your other runs with us.  - iLOVELUCYnDISNEY  951.4 #196 12:02AM
It was a nice trail run, 4 miles, in Sausalito.  The crowds were heavy with runners, people in costume, people jogging with leashed dogs, and dogs in costume.  About a 45 minute run/jog in the fog. - BombFrogFormerCM  1015.8 #183 12:24AM
I nominate you for Mr. September for the MW calender - GoofyMom77  904.1 #203 12:35AM
Well my birthday is the 27th but I think I have to pass the honor off to Tarzan.  I will be going to the Scottish games next weekend in full kilt, not loincloth... - BombFrogFormerCM  1015.8 #183 12:48AM
Whistles - missariel33  2115.5 #72 12:52AM
Haha! At the end of the games it'll be "kilting" you, but the ladies will have a good show of you and the other lads when the wind picks up - GoofyMom77  904.1 #203 1:16AM
I'm not "brave" enough to go "regimental" with my kilt but I am also going as William Wallace for my minis' school scare fair this Halloween! - BombFrogFormerCM  1015.8 #183 12:11PM
πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘way to go! - OhanaPhoto  5120.8 #24 12:41AM
Thanks!  I'm just a Hapa Haole (yonsei) suffering from OCD thanks to a very pushing mother. - BombFrogFormerCM  1015.8 #183 12:50AM
i'm hapa haole too :))) - OhanaPhoto  5120.8 #24 11:17AM
Congratulations! Thank you for sharing with us and letting us be part of your journey :D - lohofosho  785.0 #235 10:17AM
It's weird not to be 100% and know that will never happen.  I can no longer spiral throw a football nor can I throw baseball like I used to so I'm find new ways to stay active. - BombFrogFormerCM  1015.8 #183 11:11AM
Congratulations! Also great cause to support. Thank you. - Bibba  461.4 #471 10:31AM
I'm lucky to have all my limbs, I have met others who weren't as lucky... - BombFrogFormerCM  1015.8 #183 11:13AM
I did the Tri-For-Fun years (and less pounds) ago.  Its a great course if you've never done it! - clawton  126.1 #3100 11:39AM
That's the course I wanted to do but three of my teammates from Lake Tahoe's Tough Mudder are doing the longer Tri-For-Real course and pressured me to go for it since I was able to do 18 of the 19 obstacles (couldn't complete monkey bars due to surgeries on arm and shoulder). - BombFrogFormerCM  1015.8 #183 11:57AM
Great job, and good luck in your upcoming events!  - Spoonful_O_Sugar  613.1 #331 12:14PM
Thank you SoS! - BombFrogFormerCM  1015.8 #183 12:17PM
Way to go on your accomplishment!! ::Hands you a bouquet of freshly painted red roses:: - Alicewhoareyou  2550.5 #53 12:16PM
Thank you! - BombFrogFormerCM  1015.8 #183 12:24PM
Woohoo your hard work and determination is paying off! - HiddenMickeyFanatic  1247.8 #136 4:04PM
Yes it is!  Thank you! - BombFrogFormerCM  1015.8 #183 4:33PM
You give me hope! - PrincessDaisy_FU2Rcm  341.1 #701 4:11PM
Thank you, my son gives me strength. - BombFrogFormerCM  1015.8 #183 4:34PM
πŸ˜„ - PrincessDaisy_FU2Rcm  341.1 #701 5:50PM
It's amazing what we can do when we have so much support that it helps to believe in ourselves! Congrats! I am encouraged and inspired by your story  - MarshaMouse  5036.0 #25 4:21PM
Thank you! I had some choices I had to make, but I didn't want to live in a sea of self pity as my wife and minis need me to be there for them. I am lucky they are in my life! - BombFrogFormerCM  1015.8 #183 5:01PM
As they are to have you! Congrats! I always tend to fall in love with people who struggle the same way and I loving those who love you unconditionally are the best healing for you - MarshaMouse  5036.0 #25 5:29PM
Nice! We might have to do a Veteran's day meetup! - SpiritOfAdventure  1044.8 #176 5:19PM
Let's try for it! I'll DM you when we're on the road! - BombFrogFormerCM  1015.8 #183 5:39PM
Bring your coin, my senior NCO coined me at my wedding rehearsal dinner and caught me without one...then he ordered Blue Label on me! - BombFrogFormerCM  1015.8 #183 5:43PM
No coin challenge for me! I lost most of my coins during a PCS move. But I have a feeling I won't mind buying you a couple drinks - SpiritOfAdventure  1044.8 #176 6:35PM
I've got a couple (a mean a lot) I can spare after 23 years! You can take your pick at our meet up! - BombFrogFormerCM  1015.8 #183 6:42PM
You are two amazing MWers and have given a great service to our country - thank you! If you do a veteran's meet up, please post so we can share in your fun and give our thanks to you and others who have served our country. - DreadPiratesRogers  846.9 #219 6:40PM
I'm sure we'd post pics of our meeting, especially of SOA meeting Jack and Jill! - BombFrogFormerCM  1015.8 #183 7:44PM
Yay way to go!!! - mickeyat78  1977.6 #82 6:11PM
Thanks! Just trying to find my balance in life... - BombFrogFormerCM  1015.8 #183 6:42PM
Outstanding! Keep it up! - NascarDave  322.2 #794 6:12PM
Thanks! Just want to be extremely active with my children to teach them the concept of a healthy mind and a healthy body! - BombFrogFormerCM  1015.8 #183 6:44PM

Congrats on all of your hard work & accomplishments! Good luck on your next run! πŸ‘ - LuvsMimisHouse  515.8 #407 7:13PM
Thank you, just 3 weeks away! - BombFrogFormerCM  1015.8 #183 7:49PM
BombFrog I'm privileged to count you among my MW friends! Β You impress me with your determination to rise above your injuries and to set goals and challenges for yourself - as a physical therapist I have certainly seen others who chose to give up or who settled for much less! Β I count you as a brother, as we both have children with Autism, who we dearly love and strive to help live lives that are happy and fulfilling. Β My ongoing best wishes to you and your family! - DreadPiratesRogers  846.9 #219 6:51PM
Thank you, DPR!  I won't deny that I was bitter to lose 35-50% use age of my right arm especially since I'm right handed.  But I realize that with my children and my wife I can't feel sorry for myself.  I see Jack living with high functioning autism and I realize I have to be an example for him in words and deeds in that you finish what you start and that you do not quit.  I hope that you can meet the family soon! - BombFrogFormerCM  1015.8 #183 7:53PM
I would love to meet your family. - DreadPiratesRogers  846.9 #219 9:40PM
you look buff! - Hendizl  2821.9 #46 7:01PM
Nope, just trim...  These endurance events are great for that.  At one time I was a 48 jacket, now I'm a 42.  Same thing with pants, was a 36 and now I'm a 32/34 depending on brand. I used to lift for bulk and strength so this is quite new for me... - BombFrogFormerCM  1015.8 #183 7:47PM
