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.

June 21, 2006

This morning was awesome. I got up in time this morning without hitting the snooze button. For me that is a miracle. Got my coffee and gym bag and headed out the door. I was in the pool by 6 am.

Swimming is getting easier I have to admit. I just wish the gym would get the endless pool running soon. Having to turn every 40 ft is getting to be a pain. Anyway, I was able to get in over 1000 yards. Now that is alot of laps. I felt pretty good but once again, when I think I am getting my form down I have to stop and turn. that is really frustrating.
After getting out of the pool I got changed and got on the trail. This was a great run - my body feels really good this week. It's a little scary. Especially after putting all the miles I have put in after the Marathon without really getting a break like I should have. Mentally I feel alot stronger after having to push so hard at the marathon in the heat. I feel that I am able to mentally push throught the pain more than I have ever in the past.
This weekend's triathlon is coming up quickly. I am feeling really excited about this. I thought I was getting nervous but I now think that it isn't nervousness but anxiousness about doing it. ---------God I Love This Sport-------
