A Founder’s Story – Part I

It All Starts with General Fitness, Right? (Well, sort of).

Stuffitts is really intertwined with my life.  It’s an interesting story.  I wouldn’t say typical.  But here it is.

In 2006, I had let myself get ridiculously out of shape for about a decade.  Finally, one morning I woke up, looked in the mirror and really didn’t recognize the fat, tired guy looking back at me. I hit 220lb (and, no, it most surely not muscle). I was 36.  Mid-life.   Where did the last decade go?

Tipping the scales at 220lbs!

I was fed up and decided that I will not live like this anymore.  No matter what.  From that day, I started a long, slow, tedious effort to get back in shape.

After about 9 months I was down to about 175lb.  I had come back from the abyss.

Back into shape!

So what does this have to do with the founding of Stuffitts Shoe Savers?  You’ll see….Little did I know how hazardous triathlons can be to your health.
