Today I’m featuring Rob’s challenge bio. Rob is the co-creator of the Sprint to May Challenge. His blog tells the story of his journey to lose weight in 2013. Due to some setbacks, he was unable to reach the goal he set for himself in 2013, but he picked up where he left off and is continuing on that path today. He hopes to finish what he started and is using our Challenge to make that possible. Read his bio and visit his blog for recipes, information about a ketogenic diet, and much more.
Thank you, Rob, for your bio. We look forward to following your journey throughout these next 5 months!
