50 Shades of Oceanside 70.3

My “favorite” blog posts start with “I’m sorry that I haven’t written a blog for awhile…” #sarcasm. Do I really think that people are out there WAITING patiently for my next post? I think not….so no apology for the hiatus.

Anyhoo, Oceanside 70.3 came and went yesterday. Unfortunately for me, […]

Leucadia Farmers’ Market, Bitchin’ Products and Weekly Training Summary

In the worlds of triathlon and running, Sunday is usually the designated Long Run Day.  Since it’s the off season and I’m not going to be doing any long running today, I hit the Leucadia Farmer’s Market instead.   I don’t think that I’d been since February.  I really enjoy the connection that people seem to have with community and food at farmers’ markets.  For that reason, conceptually, I love them.  However, I do feel that some of them have morphed into more of a street fair atmosphere, chock full of prepared foods and crafts, than an actual market of collective farms where things that are raised and grown on a farm are sold.  Case in point was the farmers’ market that I visited in Las Vegas:  There were jewelery vendors, Tupperware hawkers, a Kettle Korn popper and one lone produce stall all the way from Bakersfield.  Weird.

Palm Desert Triathlon Race Report and where not to dine in Palm Desert

This is a somewhat funny story about my dining experience before a race.  For those of you who follow my blog, you will know that I am a quasi-vegan and an on-the-mend triathlete. I’ll keep the Palm Desert tri race report side of this short since it was over a month ago and there was nothing extraordinary about it (except that I managed to lose 74 seconds to the person ahead of me in combined transition times ONLY—that, my friends, is REALLY bad in a Olympic distance triathlon, especially having been in this sport for 10+ years).

The better  (or worse, depending on how you look at this) story comes out of our dining experience Friday night (two nights before the race).   […]
