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'm Back
August 15, 2006

Well I'm back in Colorado again. I came back on Sunday from New Hampshire. The journey was long, and emotional. Having to say goodbye to a loved one is the hardest thing I have ever done in my life. I could not have done this without the awesome support of my Sister and Brother. The memorial service was so beautiful and loving. My Mother was one of the most important influences in my life. She will always be close to my heart and my mind. I will devote all my future endeavors to her spirit. She was always so positive throughout her life, through the hard times and the bad.

Theresa Maynard "Mom" - You will never be forgotten!!!!

I got back into my training today. I only have 12 days to prepare for Steamboat Springs Triathlon. This morning I got back on my diet to start with - I ate much too well while back East. Is the food better or do you just eat better when visiting relatives?

I got in the pool this morning and worked on drills alot. I needed to work on my skating position as well as switchdrills. I got in several 3x100 intervals for a total of around 1500 meters. I lose count sometimes. My form is getting better and I am lasting longer and longer in the pool between breaks. Time is getting short and I need to work myself like crazy this week.

Tomorrow I will try and get on the road early with Athena. We need to pile on some miles in the coming week and make sure that everything is working well. I plan on doing 15-30 minute run offs after my bike rides as well. I am starting to get nervous about the race already. This is probably due to the fact that I have not had alot of training time since last month. We'll see how things go. CIAO, Ci Vidiamo
