My triathlon partner just finished the White Rock half marathon. Really made me want to be there but with my bad knees I didn't think a half marathon was in my future. She also motivated another co-worker who used to work out with us to shoot for the Big D half marathon in April in Dallas. She pointed out to me that if the contestants on Biggest Loser could do a marathon, I can do a half. And you know their joints are all shot. Currently I can do 4 to 4 1.2 miles without much problem. I remember not to long ago that would have been impossible. So here goes, new goal. Don't tell my orthopedist, he will not be happy when he has to put my knees back together after that run. I am going to start training and go for it. That race also has a 5k, so I can fall back on that if needed. Never thought I would do a tri either, and I have 4 of those done for 2010. Wish me luck! Gotta run.
