XC skiing in the Fingerlakes National Forest, upstate NY, 02/2010
Triathlon 2011 done! With my friends, Pam and Chris.
7 women, 7 months of training, 1 triathlon completed! My first. July 18, 2009
Hi! my name is Daneda, but by all means, call me Dee.
A few triathlons, a few distance swims (up to 2 miles), several distance bike rides under my belt over the past few years, along with a few injuries and sicknesses. But I lost the extra weight I gained during the downtime brought on by the injuries, and am still on the triathlon path. I also just started college, at the age of forty. It's intimidating, but a great relief to finally be there.
Wish me luck!
My number one goal right now is to learn proper nutrition, especially for an athlete, to prevent recuring sickness. I've improved greatly in this area thanks to SparkPeople, but have a ways to goo, too.
The biggest part of my program is here, on spark people. It helps me track calories in vs. out, and lets me know what to eat. I had a lot to learn about carbs, calories in vs out, etc. And have learned so much, right here! In addition, my friends are a huge motivational support system.
I live in Geneva, NY,with my husband and cat. We own a store, Church Creative Flooring, Inc., I graduated from an advanced writing course in the spring, and am now in my freshman year of college. Very, very busy.
I also paint, garden and quilt when I have time.
My favorit quote is "if you keep doing what you're doing, you will keep getting what you're getting." It has been very motivational for me over the years.

My Daughter does not do aythign right now,, she has in the past,, but seems to have strayed lately .
I dont get to bike much with the Ladies on sat mornings lately,, and I miss it alot,, its such a great ride. Like you i am usually working,, or doing other things with the MIMs . I have never heard of the group you bike with,, that is interesting . I live in Newark so I dont get a lot of MIM activity during the week,, as not but a few from the Newark area. I go to Cadga on Sundays for MIM practace . But most of the rest of the week am on my own .
My 8 year old grandson Lives with us,, so that limits me alot during the week,, I do all my runs in the wee hours of the morning,, and then do some Xtraining during my lunch . It was nice chatting with you,, I will private msg my last.
Chat soon,, maybe we can meet at a local event sometime :-)
