Subject: Glad to be here!
Back in January I almost died from diabetic problems I didn't know I had.  Dr said exercise.  Could barely walk when I got out of the hospital.  Started by walking, did that until I got my strength back.  Bought a bike and started riding it everywhere, got stronger.  Saw a piece on the Olympics about a 71 year old man that ran a marathon a day for an entire year.  Felt like a real wuss after that.  Started running the next day.  I'm a massage therapist.  I have a client that's a triathlete.  Got to talking to her about it.  Figured I'm already biking and running, might as well swim too.  That was where I was 2 months ago.  I can swim 2 miles now without batting an eye.  Got my biking up to 25 miles and run a 5k every Tuesday and a 10k every Thursday.  I am dying to see what this program has in store for me.  My target is Ironman.  If your gonna set a goal, aim high.  Its an honor to meet you, and I will see you at an Ironman some day.

Thats a great turnaround.  You have come far in less than a year.  Do you have any races singled out next year?

Again, congrats on turning your health around.

Thats crazy! Keep it up I'm an over-shooter too its the best way to keep your working drive nice and high. Long ways to go? Long hard effort to push. Anything less and you won't get there!
