My name is Anthony Akin and I am originally from Moore Oklahoma. I graduated from Moore High school in 1992. As a baseball player, I received a scholarship and attended Oklahoma City University from 1992 to 1995, where I studied Psychology.
As an athlete I was never concerned about what I ate. It finally caught up with me. When I begun my career, my activity level declined, which led to me adding 60 lbs. over the next few years.
As I reached my 30’s I decided it was time to get my act together and get back into shape. I started by running a few times a week and going on the South Beach Diet. The diet taught me a lot about nutrition, which led me to making better choices while eating.
In 2008, I ran my first 5K, and I was hooked!! Running with 1000+ people was electrifying. After that race, I soon began training for my first marathon. In 2011, I became a member of Marathon Maniacs by running two marathons within a 15 day period.
