1st Post

This is my first post. And it's a biggie.

I am announcing my goal to participate in the 70.3 in Hawaii in 2013.

You might be thinking "big deal". But it is! I'm in good shape, yes, but I've never thought about doing something like this.

The event is composed of a 1.2 mile swim, 56 mile bike ride, and a 13.1 mile run. Eons ago I swam half a mile. Years ago I rode a 100 mile bike ride. I've never ran more than 8 miles. And that was 20 years ago. In fact, I have not run a distance of any meaning in 20 years.

So I feel OK with the swim, OK too with the bike. But the run? Ugh!

With the move, the new business, and stuff, this won't be easy to prepare. But this will be a journey...
