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.

Day One
April 02, 2007

Well, here it is. The first day of my new training program. 20 weeks until Timberman.

And what a way to start it - first off - got stopped by 5-0 for rolling through a stop. And one of the only times I did not have my seat belt on - got written up for that also.
But anyway - life goes on. Put the negative things in life in the past and concentrate on the positive things around you.
I was back in the pool this morning. After watching the 70.3 Championship on Saturday I was a little stoked to push hard. I watched the swim stroke of the men and realize that my stroke looks alot better but somehow they just go faster. so I really worked on my sprints today. Getting in a total of around 2000 yards with 6x200 intervals plus warm up and cool down and the sprints. I did some pull buoy and paddle work as well. If I can just get moving faster I would be happy. I do need to get in some open water practice as soon as possible.
Over the weekend I went out looking for a new wetsuit. While doing that I found an awesome accessory for my bike. It is a new carbon water holder for the seat that will also hold 2 tubes and 4 - CO2 cylinders. It is way cool. It is made by Blackwell - I can't even find a picture of it anywhere. But I do know it is on my bike. Awesome!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I have a 30 minute run for this afternoon with 6x30sec fartleks. The weather is great today but is suppose to turn south tomorrow. Well for now until tomorrow - CAIO
