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.

Good Morning World !!!!

Another beautiful day out here in Colorado. That is one of the greatest things about living out here. The weather is beautiful almost every day of the year.

I was up and out of the house extremely early this morning. I wanted to get a good Brick in today. My swim was absolutely awesome. For the first time I was able to swim nonstop for 500 meters, then repeat it 5 minutes later. I am really getting into the swimming thing. I think I am growing gills but I can't be sure ---- so I've included a picture of my neck, what do you think?

After my swim I climbed upon my bike and rode off into the "sunrise"? Oh whatever. The bike ride was great I added another 20 miles on and rode pretty hard throughout the entire ride. My average speed being 19.8 mph. My bike handling skills are pretty good. I was using new pedals this morning. The LOOK racing pedals with the lateral float. I don't know if I like the lateral float but for this morning I did not notice much of a difference from my last pedals as far as feeling. They are a lot easier to get into that my last pedals. Which is great at stop lights. I do need to adjust my cleat a little to the inside - I kept rubbing up against the crank.

Tonight I start another week of ab work. Strengthening up the core has really helped my swimming. I am able to power my swims through my hip movement and it seems to help out my form a lot. For Now. Ciao!
