Seattle Marathon

I'm on my way to the Seattle Marathon. I have been putting in the miles for this one. I'm really wanting to put in a 4:15. I think I can pull that off. Last year I ran the half Marathon and it kicked my butt. I was not much of a runner last year. This course has lots of hills so I have been busting my ass on hill training. The weather last year was rainy and cold, this year it looks like the rain is going to hold off and its just going to be cold =) . I bought some new gear just for this race, I bought tights and a top with 5 pockets from a company out of Cali called sub4usa. I picked these up to help against the rain and the cold. I really want to do well at this race. This race is going to keep me motivated and carry me into the winter. I need to keep my training up for Ford Ironman Coeur d'Alene in june 08' BABY. I'm so pumped Grrrrrrrr. Wish me luck!!!

Night Running or Cycling

I just picked these up, they are called Guardian light by eGear. They are really a nice and bright light. They blink or you can just have them stay on full time just by flipping the battery over. These lights are really light weight and clip on nice. Steady-On mode 100 hours. Flash mode 250 hours. They make red, blue, white, yellow and green. I paid 11.95 each. I run after work so it's dark this time of year and I really needed something blinking bright and these work great.

Power Yoga

That's right I said it out load YOGA, it's a good thing. I needed something in my workouts and in my life that would give me that stretch and that so badly needed CORE workout. I think Yoga may just be that ticket that I have been looking for. I did my first every Power Yoga class tonight. It was cool, I really enjoyed the relaxation of the stretch. I really need to find my spiritual and physical center. Wow that's deep

Sam and I do Ironman Coeur d'Alene Bike course

Well we finally did it. Sam and I rode the Coeur d'Alene bike course. One thing I would like to say is, What a beautiful course. Lots of Trees, trees mean shade, I just love trees. The roads are in great shape , lots of new asphalt. The hills are tough but after you make it over the top you get some rest before the next one comes. It was nice getting out on the bike with Sam again. especially the location where we are going to become Ironman for the first time.
