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.

Anxiety Anyone?
June 08, 2006
Today I am nervous as all hell. My anxiety level has peaked. Why? Well tonight is my first open water swim. That's right folks - I am going swimming in a lake. I have asked my friends to paint a black line on the bottom for me but they are unwilling. I asked them when I should do flip turns and they told me not to try. Hey.......what am I doing here?
Why is an open water swim causing me to freak out? It's a lake, it's not like there are any sharks or as IronWil points out - any large jellyfish in there. I have no idea why this is bothering me. By tomorrow's blog I will be over this. I have my gear packed and will probably wear my wetsuit just to try it out. I think the temps are up enough to where the wetsuit is optional. I think it would help me feel safer anyway.
