Half
It seems this is the year of "The Half" - half marathon and half ironman.  When I first started in triathlon I raced A LOT!  Racing was (and still is) my favorite thing to do - it keeps me focused on a goal and I love the energy of being at a race with all ...

Motivation - how do you find it?
No seriously, I'm asking - where do you find your motivation?  I struggle with this every minute of everyday.  If I don't have someone to meet for a workout, I simply won't do it.  Take this morning for example: I got up at 4:15am, made 3 giant stacks of pa...

First 10K & 5K of 2017 Season
Why is it that people never take t heir own advice?  Every season of coaching Girls on the Run, I tell the girls they cannot compare races to other races.  You can't compare Apples to Oranges.  Every race is different even if they are all 3.1 miles or 140.6...

Speed.
Every summer I sign up for my favorite triathlons or ones that I can do with my friends.  This summer I haven't signed up for any mostly because I didn't really train all winter and I was kind of excited to have nothing on the calendar.  Except, for someone...

Time or Money
Any adult will tell you: you either have Time or Money.  Most people don't or will never have both.  Everyone needs to make peace with the one they are given and make the most of it.  For the most part, I have not made the most of my situation.  I have more...

Pain is life.
People often say the key to being an elite athlete is those that are able to suffer the most - the more you can deal with pain, the  more successful you'll be as an athlete.  This statement always explains to me why I'm never the fastest in any race bc I do...

Rev3 Quassy 2016
First triathlon of 2016 is in the books!  Rev3 Quassy is my all-time favorite race even though I seem to get slower each year.  I love everything about triathlon: the gear, the friends, the people, the Expo at the race, the feeling on race morning, the sunr...

Watch out 2016...
My beloved older sister once told me, “wait until you turn
40, then your body will really start to fall apart”.   I turned 40 last year and was still fine – this past March I turned 41
and shit started to roll down hill very quickly!   For the first time in...

Norwood 5K brings out the best!
With every lesson I teach of Girls on the Run, the more I wonder what effect it would have had on my life had I been a GOTR girl in elementary school.  Most of the coaches and parents have that thought while their daughter goes through the program.  It is a...

Goals. Goals. Goals.
Now that the triathlon season is officially over for the year, I've been struggling to find some goals to set for myself.  I'm "that" person, without a goal I will sit on my couch and not move.  Fear motivates me and I fear not being ready for a race.  SO, ...
