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.

It's a little cloudy and cooler today. Great for a run. Had 6 miles on the schedule today - I did not push too hard but still finished about 8:40 min/mi. My legs felt pretty good today considering how I felt overall yesterday.
Yesterday started out like a great day and quickly deteriorated. I woke up feeling great. Got in 20 minutes of Ab work, played with the dog then headed on down for a run. During my ride down I suddenly broke out in a sweat, got dizzy and nauseated as well. by the time I made it to the trail I felt like Sh**. I went for a slow 3 mile run anyway and actually felt better while running. The rest of the day is a blur. I was nauseated and dizzy all day long. Never got to hurling but as close as you can get without it. Last night I felt better and got some food down.

Last night I slept great again. Today I am feeling 110% better than yesterday. At least I can keep food down, and the room is not spinning. Yesterday was just really weird. Tomorrow is swim day again. I am going to try and get a swim-bike brick in.
