Peanut Butter

My name is Matt and I have an addiction to Peanut Butter.

This is something I need to come to grips with. I think at least 50% of the daily calories I take in come from a never-ending parade of spoons filled with peanut butter. 

I'll never get skinny this way.

I'm nearly at the point where I'm going to substitute one of my three meals for a pint of peanut butter.

The economy is in pretty bad shape, time to eat as much peanut butter before the supermarkets all close.

It's been a while, too long really, since I've added anything meaningful here. Colin's right... without races to report on, there isn't much exciting stuff to post on.

I'm doing the Ironman in Lake Placid NY this summer, and training is well underway for that, so I'll update my training progress here for that. I've been focusing on running, which will be where that race gets difficult. I'll be fresh for the swim and the bike shouldn't be a problem for me at all, but that run is going to be killer. Starting a marathon after being on the bike for around 6 hours? I am not looking forward to that at all.

We've been skiing with the kids several times at Wachusett Mtn, a great place to start but a mountain that even a beginner (like me) can soon outgrow. I got spoiled by Stowe last month... That is what a ski resort should be.

Time for work. I put fenders on the Zank cross bike. That's like putting spinner hub caps on a mercedes, but they are so effective at keeping the melting snow and dirt off me that I don't care.
