2016 to Date

By | 2016-05-22T18:26:00+00:00 May 22nd, 2016|

It's been a long time since I have posted.  2016 is looking to be an awesome season and I wish I had been more consistent with the blog.  I love keeping a record of all my adventures for me to look back on and I like sharing the journey and tri-life  lessons but I simply fell [...]

Short Course Respect

By | 2016-03-18T06:21:00+00:00 March 18th, 2016|

I hear this phrase, "just a sprint tri" a lot or the comment, "I've only ever done sprints" and I want to point out saying "just" a sprint triathlon doesn't make sense.  A sprint triathlon is a an opportunity to lay it ALL out there.  It is an endurance event.  Short course triathletes are amazing.

Destroy Your Narrative

By | 2016-02-09T21:04:00+00:00 February 9th, 2016|

Posted a while back... a nice reminder! Sometimes you have to destroy your narrative.  My athlete mind has been holding onto anger at myself for allowing situations to drag me down last summer.  I let obstacles in life impact my training and racing.  I had a narrative.  I had a story about myself failing to [...]

Frostbite 15k Race Report 2016

By | 2016-01-22T17:52:00+00:00 January 22nd, 2016|

Running on bike fitness!  Since late November all I've really cared about has been my bike power.  I've been so focused on cycling that I've only been running two to three times a week and keeping it all light and conversational.  However, I couldn't pass up the opportunity to run one of my favorite local [...]

How I Prevent Sickness from Taking Down my Tri Training Progress

By | 2016-01-16T11:35:00+00:00 January 16th, 2016|

Your training is awesome. You feel stronger than ever. Pushing new paces, meeting milestone mileage and keeping up with your hard training group are the norms for you. This could finally be your big year and you're secretly convinced you might just be invincible. Then, one terrible day you wake up and something isn't right. [...]

The Shining Tiger Awards for Dedication to Triathlon 2015

By | 2015-12-30T20:01:00+00:00 December 30th, 2015|

Every year the Shining Tiger Award for Dedication to Triathlon is presented to up to three individuals who embody triathlon's unique and inclusive spirit.  Triathlon is more than just swimming, cycling and running.   Triathlon has heart. This “soul” of triathlon lives in athletes of every age, circumstance and ability level.   We join through sport to [...]

On Success

By | 2015-11-25T13:09:00+00:00 November 25th, 2015|

The most important thing I've learned in my maze-journey in the sport of triathlon (can be applied to life as well) is that there is no one true "right way" to make progress and achieve success.  The best athletes have become successful by knowing themselves and adopting what works best for them.  Having an open [...]

Ironman Louisville Race Report

By | 2015-10-26T20:13:00+00:00 October 26th, 2015|

Though I was a bit of a basket case overdosing on zicam and vitamin C paranoid I might catch the office bug before the trip, by the time we arrived in Louisville, I was calm, confident and ready to race.  The drive out through West Virginia was gorgeous and upon arrival I felt fitter than [...]
