The 30 Clean Healthy Eating Plan and Discount Code

Over the last year-plus, I have embarked on both the Whole30 and the 30Clean healthy eating challenges.  What exactly are these challenges?  For 30 days, you eliminate sugar, alcohol, legumes, grains and Paleo-style renditons of brownies, smoothies, pancakes and more.  Me, who usually preaches “eat anything in moderation” […]

What do you eat before Training? Real Food For Fuel

A triathlete can (hopefully) only stomach so many bars, gels and tabs. I try to reserve most my intake of those necessities for racing and long training sessions. I prefer real foods and often field the question of “what do you eat before training?”

The short answer is It depends. […]

Reaction, Fracture or Gout……..and the BEST Falafel EVER

Q4 2015 was all about A LOT of travel. I don’t envy my husband, who not only travels for play, but for work as well. Trips to Washington D.C., Philadelphia, Arizona and Mexico over late October and most of November were followed up by 3 days in Colorado visiting […]

#MBW by the numbers and Maca-Brazil Nut Energy Bites

#MBW (monster bike week)

400 Miles logged over seven days. For some of my uber biker friends, I know that is not super impressive; but I was certainly proud. Previous to this past week, the longest I had ever ridden in 7 days was 253 miles. Yay me!

7 Betty Designs […]

Vegan, Gluten-Free Chickpea Cashew Butter Blondies and #MBW

Day three of self-inflicted Monster Bike Week #MBW. Coming off of 4 days of R and R over at the Canyon Suites in Scottsdale (“R and R” is code for “barely no exercise, lounging, eating and wine”), I was gunning for some quality and quantity in training. It’s […]

Training Perspective and Bourbon-Spiked Sweet Potato Pie

The holidays are an interesting time of year as their timing falls in line with the subtle pressure of training for early season races.  While I have a pretty well-laid out training plan for the month of December, I am also smart enough have been in this sport long […]

Roasted Brussel Sprouts and Holiday Training

Brussels Sprouts are the “IT” vegetable.  10 years ago, I wouldn’t have dreamed of putting them on my restaurant menu.  I even reversed the norm this a.m. and had a bowl for breakfast. I assume that some of you are cooking them on Thanksgiving, so I thought that I […]

Raining in San Diego, Thankgiving Wild Rice-Butternut Squash Salad and Brief Thoughts on Strength Training

I’m sitting at my computer at 5:00 a.m. listening to the rain that is coming down hard.  Yesterday I heard that San Diego was going to be getting rain overnight.  I asked if we were talking “San Diego Rain” (when it barely is spitting from the sky), or “Real Rain”; y’know, […]

Recovery Weeks and Chocolate Espresso Energy Squares

I’m having a recovery week from training so I’ve had more time to do non-triathlon things that I usually reserve for the days in slower months.  I’m quickly finding out that, although I THINK I’m good at recovery weeks; I’m really not as they mess with my head-particularly when […]

Whips, Hips and Paddles

Just to be clear, my blog hasn’t gone all crazy and wild on you;  I’ll save that for a later date, lol. This is just a little write up about a creamy dessert, movement and triathlon toys.

Paddles for the last 3 months, I’ve done a fair amount of swimming […]
