Josh in West Palm Beach. I don't know what to call myself. I've been a runner since high school track, and have been a member of this site since 2004 when I took up triathlon. I worked up to Half-Iron distance on the bike and run (don't ask about the swim . . . my nemesis) before having a nasty crash on the bike, shattering my left collar bone and tearing my right ACL in 2005. I have spent the last 4 years watching my bike gather dust (I rode 4 times in 4 years) while running, weightlifting and doing yoga for exercise.
I finally cleaned up the bike, did the necessary maintenance and did my first ride this week, with number 2 coming tonight. Mentally, I feel like I'm back and am looking for a Sprint Triathlon to compete in this summer. With any luck I'll be back training with the same vigor I used to possess.
