Putting It All Together: Swim-Bike-Run

I am signed up for the TriGator Super Sprint that takes place in two weeks. Why? Because I'm crazy as hell apparently. The Super Sprint is a 250 meters swim, a 3.4 mile bike ride, and a 1.1 mile run. Totally doable. I think it will be a good prep for the sprint I am… Continue reading Putting It All Together: Swim-Bike-Run

Quiche on the Go

I am a lover of quiche for many reasons, but right now I'm especially loving the fact I am taking it to work with me! I'm trying to shed a few pounds and I'm also training for my first sprint triathlon; quiche is a great source of protein and I've made mine crustless (sad face)… Continue reading Quiche on the Go

I Run. Sort of.

It was run day. I had to go to the office and work a little first. Blah. However, when I was done there I was like a kid at recess time as I busted out the door to go for a run. Wha???? Whoa! That was me! Me? Clearly my body has been invaded by… Continue reading I Run. Sort of.

I have determined that in the swim, bike, run line up the bike is my favorite. Other than the fact… Continue reading Swim, Bike, Run? I like the Bike Best…so far.

On the road again…

First day back from vacay running? Check! It's another beautiful day and 85 degrees. I am loving it!! I wanted to ease back in so I alternated walking and running every quarter mile for 1.10 mile. I'll build back up slowly to avoid injury, and frustration. I had my faithful companion with me, Sirius XM… Continue reading On the road again…

Back in the Saddle After Skiing

My husband and I took our kids up to North Carolina for their first skiing adventure. They had a blast!! Mark and I skied together the first day and then we all joined together for some snow fun. I took a total of two days off training to pack and travel, skied three days, and… Continue reading Back in the Saddle After Skiing
