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.

Busy day at work. I sometimes wish I could quit work during workout months. You know --- just work the winter months.

Anyway - I had a great swim yesterday. I am still feeling fresh in the water. My stroke is pretty much right-on but I am alsway trying to tweak it a little for more power. Tomorrow i'll be back in the water in the morning. I do enjoy pool days.

Ran this morning and I felt pretty good for a change. I am still working on form. Today I did 45 minutes of running - it was suppose to be a foundation run but I ended up doing some hillwork also. My pace is up from last year - at least it feels like it.

Tomorrow night is another bike ride. I am going to try and get in 1-2 hours after work. I have both of my bikes tuned and running great.

Well that is about it - O, there is a little news - I signed up for an XTERRA race in June.

WHAT !!!!!!!!!!

Yes, I signed up for an XTERRA triathlon in June. Could have gone for the short course but NOOOOOOOOO. I have to sign up for the XTERRA distance. The race is on June 21st. It's called the Buffalo Creek Triathlon. (that would be 1 week after riding a century) Duh!!!

It sounded like a lot of fun and I need a challenge if I am going to keep this workout schedule up. So now I have something to scare me into pushing myself harder. The XTERRA is a 1 mile swim, a 20 mi off road ride and a 5 mi run. How long will it take me to go 20 miles on a mountain bike I have no idea. But, the ride should not be boring. Anyway - it will be a fun weekend.

Anyway - got to go. Keep working towards a goal - never - ever, say QUIT !!!
