This is my Spark page. I am a middle aged, overweight pretty ordinary guy who is trying to live healthy and be active. I was hypertensive. That is under control. I still have weight to lose, and hopefully that will come under control.

Thanks for visiting my blog. Short term pain for long term gain. Now what to do about the right leg being an inch longer because the left bowed too much. I waited too long. I guess a permanent shoe insert is the next step. Got new shoes so I don't ruin the knee replacement.

Will have to find someone good to make a shoe insert and my PT will work on trying to see what they can do to straighten the left leg back again. I have a torn ACL in it, so it may not be possible. May have to replace left knee so hip isn't affected if all that doesn't work.

How was Europe? have any pics?

Ha! Glad I made you laugh with my 'too old' post. And, it was just a temporary feeling that I almost wish I hadn't posted! But, it felt true at the time. I started running at 40 & did my first sprint triathlon 1 year later, but that was just a few years ago. So, I'm truly not that old. But, some days my body sure FEELS old!

By the way, thanks for sharing a brief history of your running/triathlon career. It's inspiring! Maybe, some day, I'll tackle some other events or distances. Well, of course I will! emoticon

You rock Jan. I have lots of halfs scheduled up until Dec. I got into Big Sur so I have serious training to do the 2nd half of the season. I need to get in under 6 hours and those hills will kill me.

Hey there! It's been a while!!! I went right over to the bike shop the day after the tri and got myself a lesson in tube changing (and a new tire)! I think it definitely was a mix - turns out I was stopped over 25 minutes and Physically didn't get back on the bike with the energy I had when i got off. But it was also very mental. With my new bike knowledge and some more confidence in my training, shouldnt happen again (at least not this way!!!). Looking for my next one - hoping to squeeze it in this summer!!! Thanks so much for your support and advice, always helps me piece things back together! Hope all is well with you!!!
