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.

Wrong Side of Life
May 25, 2006
What can I say, I should not have woke up this morning. What started as a good day has steadily gone from good to bad to worse.

I needed to make a stand. That was how it started. And I knew it was going to cause problems but still I had to say something. I feel that the damage may be more severe than I initially thought it would. I was just trying to avoid a nasty situation. Sometimes telling someone that you are unwilling to tolerate a bad habit just sets them off. Such is my life today without going into details. I do feel that this will be held against me in some future argument, as these types of things always come up when ammunition is needed.

Did get in a positive 4 miles this morning on my running sticks. Felt pretty good physically and tried to keep the negativity at bay. Listening to Simply Stu interview Peter Reid was a motivating factor. Great Podcast. It really is great to have the technology that we have today that allows us to listen to positive triathletes talk about the sport they love so much. Think about how hard that would of been even 10 years ago, listening to a skipping CD while trying to run. I remember those "Walkmen Players" well. I have two words for the podcasters of Triathlons - " DON'T STOP "

The marathon is only 10 days away and I am starting to get really stoked. This will be my 4th one and this will be my fastest one. I feel that I have trained my mind and body well since January and that I will be as ready as possible for this race. I will give it my all and I will either achieve my goals or bonk, whichever comes first.
