John Mallon is approaching the age of fifty in better shape than he was at thiry. He works in sales and travels a good deal throughout the West Coast. John is unfortunately addicted to foods that he knows aren't very good for him, but he's trying to kick the habit.

 

Transitioning to a healthier lifestyle was a real challenge. CrossFit and running contributed a good deal, as well as many trips to the health and diet sections in bookstores. It took years of various diets, sporadic and highly varied exercise regimens, and a lot of persistence to finally turn the "chunky, sweaty guy" into a "reasonably healthy guy who doesn't eat as many Oreos." He'd like to run a half marathon in the near future, but he's got a bit of training left to do before that happens.
