Well I just started a new program for myself yesterday. I got my motivation from my younger brother who is about 230lbs. Most people would look at him and think he was just some beer drinking chubby guy, but quite the contrary. He has done so many triathlons including the QC one, he travels the country from here to CA, to Florida. He is doing his first full Iron Man in Fl in November. I am only 199lb although I look skinnier than that. My goal is to get my cardio so I can run a whole mile. I know it don't sound like much but I ran around VanderVeer yesterday..ok walked. I could only run one length. I need to quit smoking and get my cardio built up while losing about 25 pounds. My goal is to be at 175 and ripped by Fall Semester of school starts. I also am 35 and just finished my first year of college at SCC.

I am now starting to plan my racing schedule for the year although there are just a few races listed so far on active.com. I have only run four 5k races thus far so I want to expand my distance. I too am considering Bix and most likely will run it. I also have the Quad Cities Half Marathon in the back of my mind for fall. I will run several 5k's here and there as it seems like I always need to have a race on the calendar. keep in mind, I only started running last June. I am addicted.

What's something on your calendar that you're pushing toward this year?

For me, it's the QC Triathlon in June - 600yd swim, 15mi bike, and 5K (3.1mi) run. I've done each of these activities at different times, but never all at once. I'm really excited though!

I might also make my Bix debut this year. My parents have done it for a long time, but I've never been a runner until this year, and now they're egging me on to sign up for it. I'm involved with the Showboat Theatre up here in Clinton during the summers, so I'll probably wait and see what my rehearsal schedule will be like before I commit to the Bix. Though with the triathlon I'll already be training a lot.
