I started this run, bike, and swim blog in 2010 just after competing in the Augusta, Georgia Ironman 70.3 triathlon. I've tried to add new content over the years as my focus has shifted from and back to racing. I hope you enjoy it and will follow me as I train and compete along the way to my 3rd full Ironman in Florida on November 4th of 2017.

First Road Ride in Months
I completed my first ride on the road since July yesterday. That ride was an unimpressive 13 mile jaunt around Lake Spivey and Lake Jodeco with a side tour through the golf club. This ride was a perfect warm-up for my Chattanooga training. My route had plenty of hills and little traffic considering the time of day. Unfortunately I messed up my Garmin and only captured a portion of the 35 mile, 2 hour and 15 minute ride. I know my pace wasn't what it once was but that just means there's room for improvement.
During a brief stop at a Rockdale County trail park I found a port-a-potty with my name on it. Maybe it's a sign.
The kind folks at Tara Garden Chapel and Sherwood Memorial Park & Mausoleum must have seen the results from my ride. They sent a rush solicitation to my mailbox with an invitation to enjoy complimentary meal.
I guess the folks at the American Association of Retired Persons (AARP) don't love me anymore.
Today I walked 5 miles and rode the trainer for 30 minutes.
I'm feeling the pounds melt away (because I'm starving from this stupid diet).
