Physical Stuff

I started running when I was 14 and ran my first marathon at age 17. I ran track and cross country in high school. I decided to run a marathon again when I got pregnant in 1996, but not until after I finished having children, so in 2003-2004 I trained for and ran the Toledo Glass City Marathon. About 6 weeks after that, I started having some problems with plantar fasciitis. That caused me to take 10 months off of running but I continued to do some kind of workout every day (mostly biking and swimming). Now that I am running again, I did my first triathlon on Sept. 17, 2006. Participating in triathlons is a bit more expensive than just being a runner, so since I have sunk some money into the sport, I try to do one or two triathlons each year.

My running/triathlon links:

Check the weather before you run to decide what to wear. Change the zip code in the address bar to your local zip code.

One sport that I miss but hope to be able to do again someday is waterskiing. I don't have the money for a boat yet, but someday... I started water-skiing as a kid, but it took me forever to get the hang of it. I would take friends camping and waterskiing with my family and all of my friends would learn on their first day out. It took me two years to learn, but once I got started I never wanted to quit. When I was in high school, I worked for my grandpa in the summer time and about once a week we would take off work and go skiing. Someday, I am sure I will have some photos here with me and my boat and if I get a waterproof camera, maybe I'll even post some photos of me and my family skiing.
