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.

Great Weekend
June 19, 2007

It was a long weekend for me. I had Monday off so I was able to get a few days of rest for a change.

On Saturday I enjoyed another open water swim. I felt great! The water was a little cool and the air was warm. There was no wind at all. We were able to swim as many laps as we wanted back and forth across the lake. It was about 300-350 yards across, so every trip back and forth was around 700 yards. I did it 3 times. I felt so good I probably could have even done it a 4th time. I would just get into a rhythm and count strokes. Get up to 15 and site for my landmarks. I would like to swim the course on Sunday without "tackin" back and forth.

Sunday was a 60 mile bike ride that ended up being only 56 miles total. It got hot fast on Sunday and the wind kicked up early. I ended up fighting the wind all the way back to my car. I feel that I did twice the work than my other rides. But I finished and that is what makes you feel good.

Monday, we got to swim at the outside pool. The pool is a full 25 yards. That is real nice. I enjoyed the swim. The team is really swimming well. I look forward to competing with them in future races. This weekends race should be great. I hope the weather holds out and does not get too hot by Sunday.
If you get the chance - please take a look at the hilarious You Tube video at the bottom of my blog page. For now - CIAO !!!
