This is me back in 1997. I had been in the fire department for about six months at this point. This is the only picture that remains from my entry packet into Muscle Media’s 12 week fitness challenge. Looking back I never realized how scrawny I looked- maybe that is fat me speaking. But this scrawny old me weighed about 155lbs but benched close to 240lbs. Right now I would be lucky to bench 160lbs.
Flashback to 1999
Me and Alan Keyes from CPAC 1999 (maybe 2000). Great guy and an excellent public speaker. It is too bad this picture sat in a box for so long, it got so dirty that it effected the quality.
Flashback to 2000
Me and Newt in 2000. Another great CPAC photo. Probably the best photo of me in the bunch.
