Imagine how things could be ... then work to make it a reality

I've been on Spark for a while now ... however, in the past 1 - 1/2 years I have been gone. A back injury basically kept me from doing any real exercise ... but time to change that. I gained back about 10 of the 17 pounds I lost. Not to worry though, I just need to get back on track ... here we go woo woo.

Now that I got the touchy-feely stuffs out of the way....I'm Greg.

Uhhh...not D.C....the other Washington...the state I mean. And while we're at it....let's toss in Vancouver. No, no...not Vancouver BC...the other Vancouver! Seeee...that "other" place.

Thx for stopping by! Been getting a late start to my cycling season as I allowed medical "stuff" to scare me off the bike for a while...but I'm BAAACK! :-) You can check out my blogs for details if you wish...

The duathlon I did was the Fiasco in Pasco. The run was on our cross-country course, so it was very soft. Great for these old joints, but crazy slow. And the course undulates - no real "hills," but not a lot of flat, either.

I did the Pine Hollow Triathlon three weeks later. I was the last person out of the water, had a brief mechanical on the ride, got lapped by a few people doing the PumiceMan (back-to-back sprints), but I finished in a little over two hours and was happy as can be!

I "ran" Bloomsday a couple of weeks before the duathlon. There were 45,000 people doing that event. I probably only ran half of it. But 12 km on asphalt, followed by a duathlon, then a tri, coupled with my stubbornness, adds up to a diagnosis of plantar fasciitis. Fortunately, my doctor is a runner who's suffered from over-use injuries including PF. He knows what it means to tell someone to stop running. My next tri is the Whidbey Island Tri on August 16th. I'll walk the entire 3.8 mile run if I have to!

Dude, you have a lot of blog entries to read just to catch up. Get busy! emoticon

Greg! You are back!!!


I'm still panting in empathy over that uphill bike ride of yours... it wore me out just reading about it! Something to be proud of....

Anyway, life is skipping along. I'm going back to school to get a degree in computer science; bought a little house, and enjoying being single for a while. Took some time off this summer just to enjoy, and it did me a world of good.

You and Loren are my special friends; I look out for your activity, and I'm glad that we are still in touch!

Take care.

I went on my first real bike ride since last year. I don't count neighborhood garage sales as actual rides.

It was a little over 15 miles, but I had to stop and hide under an overpass since a bad thunderstorm popped up. So not really sure on the time since I didn't have a watch. IT felt really good though- except getting soaked before I could take cover. Luckily it wasn't a long storm.

I hope your race goes well!!
