Before & Now

This past Saturday I met Ken and Brian at the club for a ride around Lacamas Lake. Each loop is about 12 miles and I needed to do it a few times to get my mileage in for the weekend. We only ended up doing 2 loops, but it worked out because I did almost 40 the next day with Denise C (2 Bridge Loop with some meandering through Vancouver for coffee).

Rewind to about a month ago when I was going through some old photo boxes and trying to make the miscellaneous piles smaller. I came across a select few "before" photos that make me cringe to even keep around. But it's a good reminder of how far I have come. Fast forward back to Saturday, when Ken took a photo of me and my new bike. Here's a comparison.

Photo 1: Me, 2.5 years ago. Keep in mind that this is about 10 pounds lighter then when I was at my ultimate heaviest (I don't have ANY photos from then because I refused to let people take them).

Photo 2: Me, on Saturday (4/26/2008).

I came across your blog through Beginner Triathlete. I'm training for my first olympic duathlon and also trying to lose some more weight. Just wanted to introduce myself and say "wow! You've done a great job."

WOW! Awsome! Congratulations!

I stumbled onto your blog and really enjoyed reading your posts! Seems like you have a wonderful sense of humour!

Keep going and enjoying yourself. I see you have a 70.3 or two planned. Good luck with those. I did my first in May and really enjoyed it.

Have fun and keep it going!
