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, […]

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. […]

When your Iron (man) go south……..and Roasted Red Cabbage with Tahini Sauce

After stumbling through a foot issue late winter/early spring (initially thought to be a stress fracture but turned out to be autoimmune “AI” related), I turned my attention to training for Ironman Whistler in late July.   Throughout the training, I never felt quiet right. The day of Ironman Whistler, […]

Zero Dark Thirty and Ratatouille with Fennel Seeds, Capers, Lemon Zest and Parsley

Wow, this week is flying by!  Yesterday was a bit of a cluster (eerie weird dream about an ex that jolted me out of bed; jammed-shut the garage door on the hatch of my VW, which delayed departure for a really really long time 20 minutes; lost my Garmin […]

Vegetarian Pho, Triathlon Training and What the Doctor Ordered

It’s so fun to say “tri-ath-a-lon-ing” and it’s even more fun to do it.  Last November, I finally kicked Achilles issues to the curb; trained for a few weeks; ended up with some debilitating foot problem; troubleshot said problem and finally got it somewhat under control (read NO GOUT). […]

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 […]

5K Turkey Trot in Mexico, EHDs and Tequila Fun

Late October, I fired off a tearful email to Coach Kurt which went something along the lines of “I don’t see this Achilles thing coming around, so let’s plan on me becoming an UBER Aqua-bike racer for 2016—my running is over sniff sniff waaaaaaa”.   As most of you […]

“You look really good in that race photo” (said no one…….EVER) and Eating Clean

Yesterday was the Thursday morning before Saturday’s Kona Ironman and the infamous “Underpants” Run took place.   I joke that some of the amateur athletes diet and “train” more for this 1.2 mile Strut Your Stuff  run down Ali’i Drive than they do for the actual race–extra ab workouts, low […]

Cleaning up the Eating-Plant Based Style

The power of food is tremendous. It’s pretty amazing that what you eat has a direct effect on your productivity, mood, sleep, health, etc.  When I’m eating well, I clear my inbox; my workouts go splendidly; I have a ton of mental clarity; some not-so-great life situations and annoyances […]
