History
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.
Marathons Completed
Arizona RockNRoll 2007
Salt Lake City Marathon 2006
Steamboat Marathon 2005
Boulder Backroads 2005
Las Vegas Marathon 2005
Why do I Tri?
Should be why do I want to Tri? I want to see just how far I can push myself. With everyday I am in the best shape of my life. And I'm never going back!!!!

Disappointed :-(
February 14, 2007
Well I am a little depressed this morning.

The awesome Abs/Gluts class was cancelled last night.

Get over it, right!

I did get in 50 minutes this morning on the trainer. The weather outside was not conducive to riding outdoors. Windchill below zero and snow on the ground. I can just imaging the depression I would be in if I lived in northern New York. 11 feet of snow - are you kidding me. There will not be any outdoors bike riding until mid summer up there.

The Trainer was less than exciting as usual. I tried to get motivated to push myself hard but that was just a moment of motivation. I struggled to stay on it as long as I did. I have got to get outside more. I see improving weather for the weekend - I hope to ride Saturday or Sunday.

Tomorrow I'll get in the gym and do my run. Unless the weather is improving overnight. I would rather run outside and get my hillwork done.

I have to find a new first Triathlon for this spring - the Commerce City Spring Sprint is cancelled for this year. Every spring Tri I have found has been cancelled so far. What's up with that. So this afternoon I will sit down and start doing searches for another triathlon to make my first for this year. I have to get out there and race to get the spirit started. For now, I'll just keep Tri'ing
