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.

The race is over, how did it go you ask? Well let me start from the night before the race for my report. Let's go back in time ........

T'was the night before triathlon and all through the house, not a creature was stirring except for a nervous triathlete. I got to bed around 8:30 pm. I have been through my bags several times. I have checked and double checked my checklist. So off to bed I go to get a good nights rest. Yeah right!

Getting a good nights rest before a new race is not going to happen. I woke up every hour during the night, and when I did sleep it was not sound. Normal for the night before a race? Probably. But what about the dreams, you know the weird dreams that you have the night before a race.

My dreams were of the worse case scenarios that could go wrong. My first was of the ride out to the race. All of a sudden my car stalled and I was stuck on the side of the rode. Unable to get to the race and only had Speedos to wear. What a hell.

Dream #2 - During the swim, I got so tired and had to finish the swim doing the Dog Paddle with water wings. Not a pretty sight. Kinda funny looking though.

Throughout the night was the same thing, over and over. What a fun night.
