I started running in January of 2004 to get in shape. I had gained too much weight and felt terrible. I was able to run my first 5K 3 months later. 2 years later and 50 lbs lighter, I have continued to push for greater goals and have run 5 marathons and I am training for an Iron distance triathlon now. Everyday I wake up with a positive attitude towards life, training and my future.

Great workout this morning. Finally my legs are feeling great. Feeling strong. Did a 2 mile warm-up then attacked the hill. This is more that just a hill my friends. This is a steep single lane road up the side of the mountain. I'll get a picture of it on my blog one day. Skyline Drive is a local Tourist road that goes up above the city. Hill repeats are brutal on this one. Great burn in the legs. Actually here is a photo of Skyline drive in the old days.
Tomorrow is a rest day from running. I hope to get back in the pool. I talked with a master swimmer today and hopefully will be able to get some help from the group he belongs to in Colorado Springs. I really want to be able to be comfortable in the water before my first open swim. If I am going to do this triathlon stuff I need to master the swimming part as well as my fear of open water. The pool at my gym is suppose to be open in the next week hopefully so that I can put more time into practice and drills.
