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.

WOW! How awesome is this. Race Athlete is taking applications from regular age-groupers for the new Team Race Athlete. How cool is this. If you haven't heard of this yet, please go to and check it out. I put in my application this morning. I may not be the fastest age-grouper out there, but you will not find anyone else with the enthusiasm that I have for the sport of Triathlon.

Back to the hills this morning. I ran my hill climb route again this morning. I pushed the pace even though my legs were screaming at me from yesterday's run. I averaged a 10 min/mile pace this morning. And as steep as this road is I feel that is great. My legs are sore today, but not in a painful way. My knees are feeling good even with the pounding of running downhill for the past 2 days. Hopefully by the time my race comes around I will have my knees fortified for the pounding.

It's a totally awesome day here in Colorado. The weather is perfect for any training. Well, maybe an outdoor swim would be cold but everything else is OK. Tomorrow is a leg rest day, I'll get in the pool in the morning and swim about 2000 meters. I have ordered the book "Workouts in a Binder - Swim Workouts for Triathletes" and can't wait to get started. I usually just do lap and lap after lap. i need to do more of a structured water workout and hope that this guide will help me out. I'll blog on it after it arrives. Until tomorrow - CIAO
