If you've been interacting with me for some time, and I've figured out your sense of humor, you get a pass.

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.

Actually, it's not about the mileage when we have the bikes on the outside of the Prius. We don't like to park in hotel parking lots with them on the outside. We could take them off and put them in our room at night. My other concern is that my bike rack is cheap. I can just see the bikes flying off as we ride down the interstate.

Saw your comment about the journal being gone . . . Can I still see my old entries or were they deleted with the "upgrade"? Thanks!

Thanks for commenting on my Long Run blog. I don't like the fact that there are so many non tradtional athletes that sometimes get ridiculed for being too old, too heavy or too thin or whatever, to engage in extreme exercising. Keep up the good work!!!
