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.

What a glorious day in Colorado. Except for the wind the weather is perfect for a long run. I am looking forward to having more time to train in the evenings now that Daylight Savings has arrived. Although a lot of people don't like the time change, as an athlete I think it provides for an opportunity to train more. Today was a 12 mile run, well according to Hal Higdon - the creator of my training program - today was to be run at a s-l-o-w pace. Well---- so much for that. With the wind behind me the route out to the turn around point was done a good pace. I tried to keep it down as much as I could. After the turn around - I was met by Mr. Wind. Although this ordinarily would slow me down quite a bit, Today I was feeling great. So I pushed hard through the wind and hard on the uphills and hard on the downhills all the way back. I kept repeating positive messages out loud to myself whenever I felt like backing off. Guess what - it worked. I posted one of my best times for a 12 miler even with the wind to contend with. WOW. What an awesome day !!!!!!!!!!!
