Subject: SWBKRUN MENTOR GROUP - OPEN

NAME: SWBKRUN/ Steve Birds

STORY: I am from Seattle and have been doing triathlons for approximately 12 years. I remember when I was 22 watching my wife do her 1st race. It was Danskin. I was so proud of her, but knew that that was something that I never would want to do!!! That is not my cup of tea I THOUGHT!!! Well I some how got suckered into a sprint the very next year, and thought that was "PRETTY FUN."

What's next? I tried another, and had more fun, then another, then the next distance. AN OLYMPIC DISTANCE! That was pretty fun, let's try something different. How about a marathon! WOW that was hard, but what a victory. Ok, I did that... Now let's try a 1/2 Ironman! UGH! TOUGH BUT GREAT.. ANOTHER VICTORY! That really only leaves the mother of all mothers!!That is right THE IRONMAN! It is logical in the steps of my life goals. I have done all other distances. This seems to be the next step, but wait! I said that I never wanted to do a triathlon 11 years ago, and here I am. I now proudly have a Ironman tattoo, and bragging rights for the rest of my life, but that is not enough! What is next? I don't know! Help me out, LET US HELP EACH OTHER OUT! WHAT IS THAT NEXT GOAL! Join my group, and I will make sure we ALL GET THERE!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I am ALWAYS looking for the next great adventure and push myself to where all my friends and family think I am stupid !!!! Or crazy FAMILY

STATUS: Married (KIM) 10 years, Avery (30 month baby girl who already owns my heart!), and a chocolate lab (KONA) CURRENT

TRAINING: Training to me is the fun part. More enjoyable than the races.... It's all about the journey with me! I love getting out in different scenery, weather, people, etc. I guess that I lack consistency in my workouts. You won't see me on the treadmill everyday!

2012 RACES: A couple half marathons, a 50k, and few smaller runs

2013 RACES: Pacific crest half ironman, chelanman half, and a couple 50k

WEIGHTLOSS: I maintain a weight based strictly on exercise, and lucky genetics. I am a huge fan of Pizza, Chips/Salsa, and JACK AND COKES!!!

WHAT WILL MAKE ME A GOOD MENTOR: I will be a good mentor to you for several reasons!!! I am fun, energetic, encouraging, and am a realist! I am no TYPE "A" personality, and I am an experienced MIDDLE OF THE PACKER!!! So should never be afraid to ask me questions, and I plan on learning from others, and being encouraged from others!!! My last Group had almost 300 pages of GREAT INFO, ENCOURAGEMENT, AND BANTER!!!! YOU WILL LOVE THIS GROUP, and THIS GROUP WILL LOVE YOU!!!!!!!!!!I have been a mentor since this program started 6 years ago, and LOVE EVERY MINUTE OF IT!!! WE WILL GO FAR TOGETHER!!!!!!!!!! My mentor group rocks and are extremely smart!!! Get ready to be integrated with 3 sports, and everything that goes with it! !!! Look forward to meeting you! Hang on!!! We are as fast here as we are on the course!!!! GO GO GO!!!!

Way to endure, Mike!!! Congratulations!

Tracking David -- go go go!!! But man, I so much prefer non-metric races to track!!

Enjoying some PNW sunshine today. And cracking up at my kids who are making charts and games and races for their Mexican jumping beans we bought them this morning. Gotta love simple pleasures.

This metric tracking is for the birds.  I keep trying to do .6xs and it's driving me crazy.

Mike, way to endure!
