History
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.
Marathons Completed
Arizona RockNRoll 2007
Salt Lake City Marathon 2006
Steamboat Marathon 2005
Boulder Backroads 2005

May 22, 2006

It's Monday. The race results have been posted.

I did get in 11 miles running yesterday in preparation for Salt Lake City. I felt pretty good but it was really hot here in Colorado and I quickly melted. And slowed down. I felt good during the run, surprising myself after my first triathlon. This morning I went ahead and did a light workout with some spinning and a 2 mile run. Also a little upper body weight training for swimming. After looking at the results of the Triathlon, I really need to work on my swim.

Now the results: The 2006 Pueblo YMCA Triathlon for Ordinary Mortals was held on Saturday May 20th starting at 6:45am. This year was a new course with the swim being held at the Pueblo County High School. There were 167 finishers. The weather started out warm and sunny at about 75 degrees and quickly rose to above 85 degrees by the time the last heat was held.

Because of my estimated slow swim time I was placed in the first heat of the day. This also gave me an advantage of cooler ride and run weather.

My final numbers:
Swim - 12:41 10th in my age group
Bike - 34:41 2nd in my age group
Run - 24:31 5th in my age group

7th in my age group with a finish time of 1:16:12.5
Overall I placed 81st in a field of 167 finishers

I think with alot of work on my swim, and some coaching, I should be able to start placing in the top 5 of my age group.
