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.

Plans for the future
September 01, 2006

This morning was a little confused. I forgot to set my alarm clock so I did wake up late. However, I got going right away and got down and able to finish my run as planned this morning. The days are getting cooler which really helps with outdoor exercise. It is a cool 60 degrees in Canon City this morning, no wind and mostly cloudy.

I just wanted to run this morning without feeling like I had to keep a pace or anything. I left my Garmin in the car and just went for a run. My legs are feeling real good. I felt like my pace was consistent, and I tried to lengthen my stride as I warmed up. I felt a few rain drops while running, this also felt real good. I just smiled alot and listened to my IPOD.

This morning I listened to Get Your Geek On. I am so happy for IronWil. She has done wonderfully with all her training and I know she will do well in Wisconsin. She is a very special athlete that has inspired many newbie triathletes - including me. I will be listening closely and following her progress during the race. They played thier favorite inspirational music during the show and they had real good choices to listen to. My favorite inspirational song is "Rise Up" by Disciple. Awesome tune.

I did sign up for the Rim Rock Run, as I described yesterday the Rim Rock Run is an extreme run. Going from Gate to Gate on the Colorado Monument. Here is the elevation chart for this particular race:

So as you can see this will be a great challenge. I completed my training schedule and I hope I didn't overdue the hill work. Well we will see. Also I got back some pictures from Steamboat, I will put them in here and there. Ciao

(That's me with the weeds)
