The Throw It Back picture is from a family trip to Disneyland in August 2008 and the later is my latest trip back in September 2012. Sure there is difference in the face and body, but the BIGGEST difference I see is the behind the smiles. Fat Josh is just putting on a show. The comedy behind the picture is a deflection of his current state. On the other hand Skinny Josh’s smile is genuine. I had just ran the Disneyland Half Marathon, I had claimed my life back and I wasn’t hiding behind anything.
That’s the difference I see in these two pictures.
This makes me want to run the Disneyland Half Marathon once again. But, sadly, it sold out within a day. There goes that opportunity. Maybe next year? Actually, I really want to get the Disney Coast-to-Coast medals so 2015 would be my best bet with running both Disneyland and Walt Disney World. Maybe I just need a Disney trips sans a race?
