"Big" Day Tomorrow

I signed up for a sprint triathlon a couple months ago, and it has arrived. Tomorrow is the Chances For Children triathlon. Chances For Children is a non-profit organization that helps kids fight childhood obesity by creating physical fitness, and education programs focusing on the importance of good nutrition and being active.

Even though it is a sprint triathlon I still do not think I am in good enough shape to participate. I thought that I May just volunteer in the morning, but then I decided I would run in the 5k race instead. I think it will be a good gauge of my current fitness level. If anything else I thing it will help motivate me to be more active in these hot summer months. I have a treadmill, I need to stop using the 110* heat outside as an excuse.

Wish me luck.

Well it has been a while. Like most of you, I have been crazy busy with work. I went to a concert tonight at the outdoor amphitheater and got drilled by the monsoon. The wind was blowing hard, and the rain was falling like crazy. The first two bands played through the storm, and they played well. The headliner never came out to perform. After waiting over an hour out in the hard rain the promoter came on stage and said it would be another hour before they would decide if the remaining concert would be cancelled or not. Well it was an easy decision for me... I bolted and got in the warm dry car.

Being so busy with work lately I have not been able to count every single calorie, and I am fine with that. Hey I just want to dance! As long as I feel good, am exercising, and keep a positive attitude I figure I should be fine.
