[...] Moseley ate even less and walked even more, eventually picking up the pace to a run, and with his weight down to about 250 pounds, entered the 2009 Space Coast Half-Marathon and, wonder of wonders, the Pineapple Man Triathlon in Melbourne Beach. "Finishing that marathon was a reward to myself for losing the weight," says Moseley, who, having been given the confidence by his first completion, added more races, including last year's Marine Corps Marathon in Washington, D.C. He entered the 2010 Space Coast Marathon too, completing the first half of the race in 2:25, blistering time, for him, literally.
