Wow, I am glad to see more and more people demonstrate how clearly wrong the Democrat Party is on the War on Terror.  This is funny because it is rooted in the truth.  Point Five » Murtha Demands: Please Bring Our Troops Home Where We Can Spit On Them

Have I Lost My Mind?

As I mentioned earlier , I signed up for the Lifetime Fitness Indoor Triathlon. I really started training for the Swimming part of the triathlon basically the week of 1/25/07. The first time I had been lap swimming in over 16 years. Wow, did I underestimate how difficult that was. I did manage to swim a quarter mile (16 lengths in a 64 length/mile pool) in 13:26. That includes time spent at the end of the pool gasping for breath. My goals are relatively simple. I hope to survive the swim, at or near the top on the bike and middle of the pack on the run. Hopefully, I won’t lose so much in the pool that I can’t make middle of the pack.

My weight has finally started a downward trend. I weighed in today at 244 pounds. Here is a picture of me in a Cyclocross Race at about 10 pounds lighter wearing a baggy jersey to hide the stomach that prevents me from getting on the drops of my road bike.
