Always a Cowboy, 2010

Well, it was a while ago that I ran this (it was the weekend after my Tri) and I figured just so I had a record somewhere I'd say what my time was, and my experience.

I chose to run the 8k, which is 5 miles.  My goal was to be sub-45 minutes, since that would average out to be less than 9 minute miles.  Then I met the elevation- without my inhaler, lol.

I ended up with a 49:38 or something like that.  Less than 10 minute miles, if just barely, but I did finish it, and didn't walk or anything.  I felt like I would die the whole time.  Ironically, my legs felt springy.  My lungs just aren't built to face these hardships- the change in elevation was quite a shock for them.  But, I'll just keep trucking.

Fort Collins Triathlon: Sep 19, 2010

After a summer of training and losing around 20 pounds, I found myself with an opportunity to compete in my first Triathlon.  It was only a sprint, so the distances looked like this:

Swim:  1/4 mile (450 yards
Bike:  12 miles
Run:  3 miles

I can't spell 'Athalon'

So, after I already have the url for my blog, I found out I didn't know how to spell 'Triathlon'.  It doesn't have that extra 'a' and I'm awesome.

Stay tuned for more stuff.
