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.

Spring Storm
April 13, 2007
Today I woke to another Spring storm. The weather forecasters in Colorado have the hardest job around. The predictions all week were for a large blizzard like storm, but the low pressure area went further south and we are getting enough to screw up training but nothing more.

Back in the pool this morning at 6am. I had 3 of the girls from the Tri Club in the water this morning. They are really doing great. They have learned so much in 4 months. It will be good to see them in their first race. I think they will all do great.

My training was relaxed today. I got my warm up done and some drills before starting on intervals. I did 2x200 and 2x300 and then 100's of kick, pull and paddles. then a 200 cool down and out of the water. I felt real good and fresh after the swim. I finished with 10 minutes of relaxation under a tanning light and headed to work.

I am looking forward to this weekend. It will definitely be a busy one. After working graves tonight at the hospital I will be headed to Colorado Springs in the morning for a 5K race called the Tortoise and the Hare. Then home for some sleep. On Sunday I will be leaving early to get to Pueblo for a bike ride with the Pueblo Cycling Group. It will only be a ride of 38 miles but maybe I'll do it twice. The weather should improve drastically over the next 2 days. So long Winter, Hello Training Season. Ciao!
