New Bike Fit!
In the past two years, my body has changed. Part of that is down to being over 30. Part of it is my change in sports--no more running and swimming! Part of it is that I don't teach yoga multiple times a week anymore, and my flexibility from the time when I ...

Coping With the Flu
I was going to go to Williamsburg, Virginia, to race the William & Mary Tidewater Classic ( last year's race report here ) this weekend, but instead I decided to get the flu. Check out my stash. Anyone in Big Pharma want to sponsor me? I had the flu at the ...

PSA: Always Check Before You Ride!
I did an easy-ish ride this morning to take advantage of the beautiful spring weather before the forecast afternoon thunderstorms hit. On the second half of my ride, I started to feel extra tired. I chalked it up to being hungry for lunch, but then I heard ...

Race Report: Monster Cross
Oy. Where to begin? First off, this race report isn't getting out until Thursday (4 days) because I've had trouble concentrating. I fell and hit my head pretty hard . . . and I didn't think I got a concussion, because it didn't feel like the concussions I'v...

Lesson Learned: Failure is Better than Success
I had a very rough ride on Sunday. It was the first time in a while I had been able to get out with a large group of my (female) teammates. The plan was to ride a very hilly 50 miles together in Potomac, Maryland. I was looking forward to riding with a grou...

Race Report: BikenetiCX
Redemption! After two DNF's in a row, it was great to have a successful race! This was my first full race as a 3 (the first race that I actually finished as a 3, anyway), and I managed to land myself on the podium still. Great end to the season! I got a gre...

Race Report (kind of): Capital Cross Classic
This will be a short one. We went to Canada for American Thanksgiving. I got terribly, terribly sick on the day we drove back and I've been sick ever since. I think I might have had the flu. I had a slight fever, my throat was sore, my joints and muscles ac...

Race Report: Winchester AppleCX
The good news is that I was on the podium! Just three of us because Sarah and I dawdled for too long in the nice, warm rec center. Casey was kind enough to step in to make it look a little less silly for this picture. Sorry to third and fifth place for not ...
