View from within – Tour de Pier 2016

I'm delayed in posting this, once again that time issue... But I think it’s better this way.. If I was to post it right after the event, it would still be fresh for everyone. Now, weeks following the Tour de Pier, some people (I imagine) have probably went back to their daily running “arounds”... With... Continue Reading →


Just Be

I used to love March. The weather starts to change, different fruits come into season, school starts to mellow out a bit, it's "in between" sports for the kids, and - oh yeah, I was born in March. Not that THAT is the reason, but don't we all kind of like the month we were... Continue Reading →

Keep Calm and Train Harder

When is the last time you said you wanted more hours in the day?! Yup. Me too. A few weeks ago I had a few different people come up to my on several different occasions with the same comment: "Where have you been? I haven't seen you?". It's kind of like one of those questions... Continue Reading →

Not because it's almost Christmas and there is still stuff to do. But because I am stressed about everything on my... Continue Reading →

All in a years time.

One year ago today I was thinking to myself, life is pretty good. I am in (probably) close to the best shape of my life (training for Long Course Worlds which consisted of a 4k swim, 120k bike, and 30k run). I have an incredible family - both immediate and extended (you say tomatoes, I... Continue Reading →

Happy New Year!

Summer is officially over... It was two weeks ago that I got motivated. I wanted to sweat more, train harder, race faster. Not that I wasn't truly motivated the past few months (aka summer) but.. you know how it goes.... you start really enjoying the relaxing months of not having a schedule. You sleep in,...

Race report – Vineman 70.3 2012

Life is like riding a bicycle - in order to keep your balance, you must keep moving.  ― Albert Einstein I needed to keep moving after my father passed away in March.  I hesitated to do this race, hesitated to ask for donations, and - wow - would I have really had regrets had I not...
