Half Moon Bay "Super" Sprint: My first podium!
Last weekend, I did my first triathlon of the season, the Half Moon Bay Super Sprint. I'm not exactly sure why it was called a Super Sprint since it was basically as long as a regular Sprint. Well, the swim was only .33 miles but it was .35 up to the transi...

You had ONE job. Just one
Yesterday marked the beginning of the two week period prior to racing in the ITU World Age Grouper Aquathlon Championships. It has been shown that it generally takes ten to fourteen days for fitness gains to be incorporated into your body.  What this means ...

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...

I'm famous! (Sort of) Plus some talk about 3D printing to aid weight loss
I've finally been in a podcast! You can listen to it here: https://3dlila.wordpress.com/2015/12/17/episode-12-meet-another-lila-shes-an-iron-man-triathlete/ So what is this "3DLILA" thing? LILA stands for "Late in Life Athlete". My friend who does the 3DLIL...

On becoming a morning person
For most of my life, I have been a dyed-in-the-wool night owl, going to bed around midnight most days, if not later, and getting up no earlier than 8:30 am. Then on the weekends, I'd sleep in even longer. I'd like to say triathlon changed all that, but it w...

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...
