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.

Hard Sunday
April 10, 2006
I though that this weeks long run on 19 miles was going to be hard, I just did not realize how hard. The day started out great - I felt great. After my fast 5K Race on Saturday I knew I would be running a little slow on Sunday. I grabbed my running partners and took them to Colorado Springs for the run. It was absolutely beautiful. The sun was shining and it was just right for a run, about 6 miles into the run things turned quickly. The temperatures rose to above 80 and while running close to the river is usually a little cooler the humidity is a little higher. By mile 12 I did start to slow and suffer, not getting enough electrolyte replacement and with all the sweating I was doing my legs were dead. I bonked at mile 16 and spent the next 2 miles just trying to keep moving forward. Wow, what a run - I do feel that we had a hell of a workout and that our training is moving forward but next time I am going to plan ahead with a water/food stash. Lesson learned....
