I'm a gastric bypass patient. In April 2009 I weighed 399lbs. As of June 2010 I weigh 217lbs. I'm down 182lbs!!!! In Nov. 2009 I ran my first half-marathon. As of June 2010 I've run four half-marathons and have four more scheduled in 2010. On July 17th, 2010 I will/did ride in a one day ride accross Indiana called the RAIN ride. It's a 160 mile ride.
I'm training for my first Triathlon. I would like to have completed a half Ironman by the end of the season in 2010. I'm solid on the bike and run but am having a lot of trouble with the swim. I never learned how to swim properly when I was a kid. I can swim well enough to save my life and that's about it.
My Tri Story:
Not much of a story to tell. I'm training hard. I'm solid on the run and bike. I've just got to get better on the swim and I'm good to go. My goal is to complete a 140.6 Ironman. My short term goals are to finish a Sprint, Olympic, and Half Ironman.
