Time for a new challenge
Time for a new challenge
When I got out of college I found myself 50 pounds overweight and working 2 jobs, and working out was not a priority. Then one day it changed. No great inspiration other than my wife was losing weight, and I wanted to as well. I started by telling friends and family that I was going to run a 5k. Then I moved on to a 4 mile race, and last year a rather hilly and challenging 7 mile race (The Bix in Davenport, Iowa). But triathlons have always fascinated me. So that is my new challenge.

So I figured something out when I went running the other day...I like running in cold(er) weather. Last week I ran my 6 1/2 mile route in hotter and more humid conidtions. My time was about 54 1/2 minutes. Then 3 days later I ran again in cooler temps (around 50) and my time was 53:20. Then a few days later I ran again in cooler weather and hit 51:30. Even this mornings run was 52:50 after biking more than 30 miles yesterday afternoon. I just hope that I get cooler temps on race day...which is now under 3 weeks away for those who would like to know.
