SAHD Life: Being a Strong-And-Healthy-Dad

I get these "google alerts" every day, which are basically just articles and posts from around the web related to certain keywords I want to monitor. "SAHD" and "Stay At Home Dad" are keywords I monitor and I have been getting a great deal of posts lately.

Taekwondo Speed Training

Don't laugh, but I just recently started Taekwondo (TKD) at age 40. I remember growing up watching Jhoon Rhee commercials and wanting to join a karate class, but we just didn't have the money. There I was at 10 years old watching kung fu theater on Saturday mornings and I would see these commercials pop up. "Nobody bothers me" was the tagline that stuck in my head.
 
Skip ahead some 30 years and now I have my own daughter and it's the first time I walk into a Taekwondo  class. In the beginning, it was all about my daughter learning TKD, getting discipline, learning respect and all that. But while I was watching her in class, I started thinking, "it will be cool to actually do the class with her." So, a few months after we arrived in Oklahoma, I began my first Taekwondo class. Yep, at 40 years old.

Finished My First Official 5K Race - Run Lucky 5K in OKC

I started running back in the Fall of 2011. My wife runs marathons and half marathons, and she had been trying to get me to run for quite some time. I figured that I'll never do a marathon, but the 5K was doable. When I found out that her dad and brother had started running to train for races, I thought that would be a cool challenge.

I thought the Run Lucky 5K was going to be a rainy, miserable race this year. But the rains stopped in time. The weather was perfect for running at just under 50 degrees and cloudy enough to keep away the sun's heat. Here are my official 5K race results.

Official results:

  • Overall finish: 151/606
  • Age Division finish: 16/61 (40)
  • Gun Time: 25:27
  • Pace: 5:06
  • Chip Time: 24:37
  • Bib #: 1033
