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.

Well back at it again. Time to train for the next race. I signed up for the Rim Rock Run in Grand Junction, CO. This race is being held the second Saturday of November and the course take the racers from gate to gate over the Colorado Monument. Awesome sights to see from on top. The race is about 22.5 miles long, however the real challenge is in elevation. The first 8 miles are all uphill, the first 4 steeper than the next 4 miles. Sound fun eh!

Yesterday I stayed int he gym and did 30 minutes easy on the stationary bike then I went to the treadmill and did 3 miles at about a 8:55 pace. I felt real good and loosened up. No pains from the weekend triathlon that I could tell.

This morning I got back into the pool and swam about 1200 meters. I did mostly slow swims with a few fast intervals mixed in. Again I felt great and had a good session. I still have no idea what happened to me on the lake Sunday. I can only describe it as a poss anxiety attack. Wierd.

Tomorrow I am planning a 6 miles run on the river trail and Monday I am going on a 50 mile bike ride with a friend. He is totally psyched about it since he just picked up a new all carbon road bike. So I probably will have to hear about how good his bike handles for the full 50 miles.

For now - CIAO
