The More Things Change, The More They Stay The Same

In 2009, I ran the Surf City 5K in 27:58 averaging a 9:00/mile pace.
In 2011, I ran the Surf City Half Marathon in 1:39 averaging a 7:35/mile pace.
I've lost over 50 pounds in the last two years. I've run at least 1600 miles and cycled at least 5000 miles.
Yet I still have "chubby face". I'm bummed. Surgery may be the only option, and while I'm at it I should do something about the chrome dome. It seems that the unintended consequence of taking care of myself is that some vanity has slipped into the equation. That said, I am kidding about the surgery. Given spending choices, I'd rather expand on my bike arsenal. Which is also vain I suppose.
P.S. I'm not looking for sympathy comments. Well maybe I am a little bit.
