Two out of Three Ain’t Bad—Chattanooga 70.3 Worlds Race Report and What I’ve been eating Pre Race

Don’t worry, I’m not going to delve into a Meatloaf song—I’ve been more into “Yacht Rock” than “Rock Opera” these days anyway….Toto, Steely Dan and Hall & Oats anyone?

Last Saturday, I raced the 70.3 Word Championships in Chattanooga, TN. “Chatty” was like one big reunion. Julie and I traveled […]

Oceanside 70.3 Race Report and the Ironman.com Athlete Tracker

Dear Ironman Dot Com,

If you are going to have a rolling start (or even if you are not), at least have better technology with real time splits and placement changes.  I get that the timing company is based in Canada, and that the eventual race winner, phenom Lionel Sanders, […]

5K Turkey Trot in Mexico, EHDs and Tequila Fun

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, […]

Kona 2014 Race Report

Eating (pretty) well and Oceanside 70.3 Race Report

I know that I’ve said this before, but when life deals you lemons, make lemonade. Which is what happened over the last year.  Last season, I was sidelined from most racing by a chronic Achilles injury (lemons).  It took me 9 months and almost every conceivable kind of therapy […]

Start of March, Palm Desert OLY and a Date Shake recipe

It’s been a great first half of March.  I was able to kick off the first weekend with an Olympic-ish distance race + post race quality time in Palm Desert with my parents and Geoff. For me, the race served two main purposes:  to shake out the proverbial cobwebs […]

A Vegan Take on a Breakfast Burrito and Weekend Training

I’m one of those people who prefers savory to sweet for breakfast.  As much as I adore smoothies, I tend to drink them midday. In the a.m., I leave the oatmeal and muffins to others, and I enjoy baked sweet potatoes and the occasional kale salad (yeah, I know…weird, […]
