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.

It is a glorious day here in Colorado. The weather is perfect for a change. I hope everyone on the East Coast is tolerating the heat OK, remember to hydrate well. Dehydration can set in at any time even if you are not doing anything. Stay safe.

I got in my first brick since getting back from New Hamshire last week. I felt pretty good this morning and pushed my pace quite a bit on the bike and on the run. And guess what - no flat tires. funny thing is after I told a friend of mine about my flat tire episode - he went on a ride that weekend and ended up with a flat tire himself. He however did not have an air cartridge and ended up hitchhiking home and going back to pick up his bike later. What a bummer.

This morning my ride was only - 10 miles but I did maintain an 18.5 average pace. My run was 4 miles and I averaged an 8:55 min/mile but did stop at the halfway point for a drink. The lap miles looked better at 8:32, 8:40, and 8:24. Tomorrow I am back in the water to work on my swim technique again. CIAO
