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.

August 17, 2007

After a great nights, I awakened this morning with a positive attitude and love for family, life and, tri’s. I worked till 11pm last night on a wobbling back tire. I had to true the back tire of my bike. Now everything seems to be OK. I adjusted the seat height and got everything ready. This morning I headed out on the bike. The roads out here are in great shape compared to Colorado. I was amazed at how smooth my ride was. Apollo worked great. No problems with gears, tires, or adjustments. I do need to adjust the handlebar a little up but otherwise no problems. Tomorrow we head out to the Lake Region. I’m getting anxious. Today I am going out with my sister – shopping. My second favorite thing to do. I figure on buying a few new clothes and sandals. As well as a few souvenirs for friends.

My brother, as usual is trying to set me up on a blind date. I really don’t have time for that but hey what the hell. Blind dates have not been a favorite for me in the past. And I’m not even divorced yet. Shit – what to do. Probably will pass on anything at this point.
Today I am not feeling really great. I feel real flat but I need to continue with my training program. Tapering has never been a fun part of my training at this point but I do realize that it needs to be done. My legs feel flat, my lungs feel good. There is no pain in my joints. I am relaxing a lot, it feels good to kick back after the last 22 weeks of work.
