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.

Injuries and sickness

I have been running and lifting for nearly 2 years now. And for the most part, I have been injury free and haven't gotten too sick. Until this year anyway. This year I have come down with H1N1, had lingering problems with my right knee and twisted my ankle on a morning run. All within a 3-4 month period. Tonight I was shopping for a new dumbbell. As I picked it up off the ground, I felt a funny "twinge" in my left knee (not quite a pop). I think I am cursed. But the way I look at it is you have to have some mental toughness in order to make it through a triathlon. This is just God's way of getting me ready. Hopefully....
