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.

Wind, Wind, Wind. It seems that the the only constant in my training is wind. It may just be because I am running in it more that I notice it more. This Spring has been worse than any year I can remember in Colorado. Also how is it that as a runner - no matter which direction you run, the wind is blowing at you. Weird ain't it.

So anyway, I'm in a better mood today. Decided to run at the gym instead this morning. Not a real fun run but it did get me out fo the wind. 7 miles today at race pace - felt pretty good. Got to listen to "Zen and the Art of Traithlon" without the wind messing with my earbuds. Podcast have got to be the best invention for MP3 players. Listening to other athletes, runners, triathletes discuss training, nutrition, equipment and general bull - - - makes the hours go by that much faster.
