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 the weather has once again given us a spin in Colorado. On Friday morning my thermometer registered a bone chilling -22 degrees. It was a great day for an indoor swim, but it was hell getting there with the snow and cold temps. Above is a picture of the gals swimming during the class on Friday. I feel that they are improving dramatically since the first day. There are some issues with breathing and stoke that will be worked out with drills, but I am confident they will be ready for the first Triathlon in April.

My workouts have been going well. I am trying to push the pace a little more each workout. I did more tune up work on my Tri bike over the weekend and switched it onto the trainer so that I can get use to it before getting it on the road. My training bike needs a good wash and maintenance day before it is ready for the road. I hope to have that done tomorrow because guess what.


Today the temps are in the mid 60's. Snow is melting like it was on a stove. The road are drying up and the mornings will not be that cold over the next few days. I hope to get out on my bike Wednesday morning and get in a nice 60 minute ride. It is so freaking awesome to live in Colorado. I know this will not last long but I plan on taking advantage of it until spring arrives.

Tomorrow I will be back in the pool. I need to get down to basics and start cranking out some big yardage. I plan on nothing short of 2000 yards tomorrow. I really need to get the swimming up to speed with running and cycling. It's time to get down to business..
