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.

Ok...another page comment for you. I just took at look at that interval ride you do on the bike. That is kinda cool that you can do a closed loop. But ... are the hard pushes on the bridge itself? When I took a look at the elevation gain I thought ...ok, not too bad. But ... it looks like the elevations are due to the ramps? I like that mapmyride ... similar to Strava. I will have to pay attention when we go over the bridge this November. I think we will be there the week before Thanksgiving ... I think.

By the way, that Captain Confucian comment totally cracked me up. I started to laugh and wifey was like, what are you looking at?

I should have tried to explain to her in some form of spiritual saying right?

And yeah ... that zombie blog ... not sure why I even decided to do that. I guess since I am not doing my writing thing for November I felt like writing something.

And ... for the off season ... you are totally killing it!

So far so good...I figure anything to help nudge the core along a bit can't hurt...? :-)

You are planning on swimming across the Columbia? Wow. What about boats and stuff? I'd be scared some tugboat would come and hit me!

By the way ... I'm glad to know I'm not the only one giving the evil eye to all those faster, fitter, and stronger than me. Though... most are, and my evil eye gets watery and tired...so I keep it down to glaring and 2 ... maybe 3 people at most.
