My Goals:
In April 2013 I made a big commitment: I will celebrate my 50th birthday in September 2015 by completing an Olympic-distance triathlon. My blog is mostly about training & maintaining motivation.

My Program:
Eat real food.

Move! Work! And never underestimate the value of a rest day.

Personal Information:
Born & raised in Seattle. Joined the US Coast Guard at 18. Bounced around a lot for the next twelve years, including a few more years in Seattle. Moved backed to Washington in 1996 to a rural area of Western Washington (the wet part). Moved to Eastern Washington in 2000, and I fell in love with this side of the Cascade Mountains. We currently live in the Tri-Cities. It's a brush steppe, but the climate is very similar to a high desert: cold in the winter, hot in the summer, lots of sun, not much rain, lots of wind, very little humidity.

Other Information:
I have very little self-control when it comes to food. I can always justify eating that extra snack - and then I regret it!

I've found that following Matt Fitzgerald's point of view about diet quality has improved my diet and made it easier to stay within daily calorie ranges.

Although I love to sleep and I could spend 9-10 hours in bed everyday, I'm naturally kind of fidgity. I like to keep myself in motion. I find it difficult to sit for more than an hour. Since I work at a desk job, I'm always up & walking around.

Thanks for the comment on my blog! You are awesome with your training... I want the dedication you have!! Maybe then I would have only gained a few lbs rather than 30 over 18 months!

My secret is I keep a set of running shoes at work and bring a workout back on Monday and take it home on Thursday (hang my clothes to dry after workout and they last me for my 3 workouts during my days at the office). Outside workouts in Pac NW I don't sweat too much.
Hope you are feeling better, maybe one more down day is just what the body needs anyway.

Thanks for stopping by my blog! Yes, it is smarter to keep the dog happy. She is my favorite running partner, after all! :) Who cares if I'm the crazy lady who puts a rain coat on her dog to run?!
