My new goal

OK, I started off the year with a New Year's Resolution to eat better, exercise more, and lose some weight. I am doing pretty good at it, but I realized that if that is all I try to do, it will only last as long as my motivation does. I needed a larger end-goal. So I decided that I am going to train to participate in a triathlon. I think that this will give me the added motivation I need. The triathlon that I think I want to participate in is the Ogden Valley Triathlon on September 13, 2008. I want to be down to about 200-210 pounds by then, but the main goal is to finish the triathlon...the weight is more of a side goal. I think I should be able to do the biking and the running, but I know that I will struggle with the swimming. The good thing is that the swimming is only 750 meters. For me, that will be difficult enough, though.
