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.

I thought this week would never end. Whew!

This morning I got in my first long run since Salt Lake. Working on getting back my stride. I left form the gym and headed down the Riverwalk Trails in Canon City. the weather this morning is realy nice, temperatures wer in the low 70's, with a slight breeze. Perfect for running. I started out at a slow pace, just to get my running legs back, then I opened it up for awhile till the half way point at mile 4. I felt really good and strong and stopped to do a little stretching.

I do have a new water belt I forgot to mention to everyone. It's awesome. I felt like I had nothing at all around my waist. While I was out in Salt Lake at the Expo I found it at one of the stores. Its from Nathan Products.

I have a Fuel Belt that I have used for years now and I think that it is a great product also. But the Nathan Belt has a few thing I like better.

1. The bottles are 10 oz ( instead of 7oz ) and are molded to fit against the body better.

2. The caps are easier to open and close.

3. The holsters stay open when the bottle is removed making it easier to put it back in ace with one-hand.

4. The belt itself felt a little more comfortable.

The rest of the run was uneventful except that I did feel real good throughout the run. My plans for the rest of the summer are to maintain a pretty high level of miles throughout the season. I plan on have a weekly long run that will be no less than 12 miles. Along with those miles I plan on packing on 3 days of swimming per week until I can swim continuously for 1.5 miles.

Tomorrow I am planning a long bike ride with a friend. That is if he doesn't back out on me. He has not been on his road bike all year and feels that I may be too competative for him. Who Me? Competative? Where on earth did he get that idea !!!! I hope he decides to go, it would be nice to ride with someone for a change. I do most of my training alone - not by choice. Having some company from time to time is sure a nice change. Have a Great Weekend, and don't forget your Fathers this weekend.

Happy Father's Day
