        My own victory... Had my very first police escort.  A.K.A. I won my first race ever!  Small local 5k (200 ppl), but for me that's pretty darn good.  (PR too!)

            2015 Goals: Chicago Marathon BQ -- don't push it

            Current Status 08/23: Not in the shape I want, but healthy just the same.

              Ran at a comfortable pace without getting out of breath. The first time since I started running again after a five year hiatus.

                Last Saturday, I finished my first Ironman.  (Yes, I think I said "first" in a way that implies that I might do a 2nd).  

                It was an awesome day!

                 

                My finish time was 12:31:17.  

                (for those that care to read my race report, see link)

                2015 Goals:

                #1: Do what I can do. <DOING>

                #2: sub 5:40 @ 1/2 Ironman (Benton Harbor, MI) <DONE... 5:35:05>

                 

                  Ran at a comfortable pace without getting out of breath. The first time since I started running again after a five year hiatus.

                   Nice going! Keep it up!

                      Fantastic race report--and a fantastic accomplishment. Enjoy the elation--you've earned it.

                      "When a person trains once, nothing happens. When a person forces himself to do a thing a hundred or a thousand times, then he certainly has developed in more ways than physical. Is it raining? That doesn't matter. Am I tired? That doesn't matter, either. Then willpower will be no problem."

                        Wow, congratulations!  I'd say you did an awesome job, including on the marathon, considering the heat.

                        Well at least someone here is making relevance to the subject. - S.J.

                          What a great thread! Congratulations to each of you on your accomplishments!

                           

                          I ran a sub 4-hour marathon on Saturday. 3:56:44 - I beat my previous PR from February by 4 and 1/2 minutes! I feel like I WON the race!

                              Sunday May 20th, I did my first half marathon.

                               

                              And while my time might not be the fastest in the world  2:48:35 was the official chip time.  I was happy with it.  (I know I never could have done any of the the things I'm doing 59 lbs ago! -- I still need to lose about 40 more, so if I can get the weight down it can only help with the running.)

                               

                              And I already know I want to run another one some day and maybe try to improve my time.

                                Great job tiday!  Keep it up!
