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.

OK ........ First of all I want to thank everyone that has posted comments to help settle me down. It is nice to know that others have gone through these same feelings before me.
I am feeling a little better this morning. I was able to get pool time last eventing and again this morning. I felt a little more relaxed this morning. My form a little more deliberate and slow. My breathing a little slower. The pool at my gym finally opened and it is nice to swim without having to pay extra. it is a little small for laps but it is OK for practicing flip turns. They will be opening up the Endless Pool next week and then my training can take a big jolt.
Tonight I am going to start getting everything together and packed. Last night, in my usual Obsessive/Compulsive way, cleaned and tuned my bike for this weekend. Hey, if I don't do well at the Triathlo I will at least have the best looking bike, right. Enough for now, CIAO......
