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.

Getting Very Nervous
May 16, 2006

What a gorgious day today. The weather is suppose to be pretty warm by this afternoon. And unfortunately the forcast for this weekend - my first Tri - is suppose to be in the 90's by mid day.
Today I got in a great brick workout. I biked for 14 miles at an average of 18mph and then transitioned to a 5K run. My legs are feeling real fresh. After adjusting my cleats I no longer have that L IT band hurting. Actually I had no strange pains in my legs this morning at all. I felt great during the run, although starting off I had rubber legs for the first 100 yards. But after that I was cruising pretty well.
I also have the map of the bike and run course for the Triathlon this weekend so in my typical Obsessive Compulsive fashion I have downloaded every map and topographic layout I could find on the area. Tonight I'll input all the info into my mapping program and print out an elevation map and plan my ride and run. Yeah, I know I'm a little weird, OK more than a little. Whatever----
