August: The month of racing
When I first planned out my season, I didn't really plan to race so much in August. But two races moved their dates, one after I had already signed up, and the Splash 'n Dash came back this year and the next thing you know, I was signed up to race four time...

What to do when your goals don't work out?
At the beginning of the season, I had several goals. The first one was to podium at at triathlon this year. Now, having goals that depend on how others finish is risky but I had come in fourth in both my tris last year and I was sure with a few minor tweaks...

I'm getting my words back
Almost a month ago it was time for my next follow-up with my neurologist. I was also running low on Topamax. However, Brain Doc was on sabbatical! Rather than renew my prescription one more time, I decided to see Brain Doc II. It was a good visit. He showed...

Marie, FYI, Similar symptoms (headaches, tired, some confusion) before learning that gall bladder surgery was necessary, and also had low vitamin D. Once those were fixed, no more symptoms. Take care of yourself.

I saw Dr. Awesome today. I was very excited going in because I knew he's be happy with my weight loss and, more importantly, I've been happy with my weight loss. I've really stepped it up lately and the scale is cooperating b...

Bones, boobs, and a broken butt
I forgot to post about the rest of my annual tests and stuff. After the lab work, I had my annual DEXA scan and mammogram. My boobs are fine. No surprises there. My bones are good for a woman my age but I want them to be as good as the 35 year olds exemplar...

Annual Check-up: I'm finally over the hill!
I had my annual physical yesterday and got all my lab work back. It's official: I'm in menopause! Now don't hate me fellow older women who had horrible time in peri-menopause, but I barely noticed. Part of that is that I have a Mirena IUD so no monthly even...

The Race to the Race: My CST Report
The Race to the Race. A friend of mine has a blog with that title and, right now, it kind of sums up where I am in life as well as my race experience this weekend. The California Sprint Triathlon was this weekend and I had big plans for it when I first sign...

Race season is starting - where am I?
Tomorrow is my first race of the season. I feel completely unprepared. But excited. I'm doing the Splash 'n Dash series this year (last year it was cancelled due to drought and I miss it) and, when I signed up, I was really excited to be able to Dash and no...

Transition Clinic: Flats and Fast Swims
A week ago Saturday I had a very good lesson in not giving up. It was my club's annual transition clinic. I missed last year's so I was really looking forward to it even though I'm already pretty good at transitions. The video from last year looked like fun...

ITU Worlds Short Course: Making the team
One of my long term goals has been to qualify for Team USA in some aspect of triathlon. I looked into it last Fall and decided my best bet was in Aquathlon (no, I don't know how that's pronounced either) because my bike is my weakest leg and because I do a ...

Cleaning out your closet
I am writing this post because I was going to say this to a friend on Facebook but it's really too long and complicated for Facebook. If I've talked about this before on my blog, I apologize in advance for boring people. Once upon a time, I had no idea how ...
