Keeping up with this blog was not a priority at camp, but now that I'm home sweet home I can wrap it up..mostly with pictures :)  Day 3 was a tough day to get started mentally.  Anthony and I both had different schedules and I was fighting allergies (or a c...

Day Two
I'm tired so this one will be brief.  :) We happily had another morning with no alarm.  We planned on riding together and it's pretty chilly in the mornings, so there was no rush to get up and on the road.  We naturally woke up around 6:30 feeling refreshed...

Day One
Last night after eating and showering, Anthony, Brutus, and I headed to bed.  We read for a bit and then lights out.  Honestly, I'm not even sure what time that was, perhaps 9:30-10pm.  We both woke up around 6:15 - it was nice to wake up naturally with no ...

2017 Arizona "Training Camp"
After race season last year, Anthony and I both had a fire in our bellies. We talked about the next few years and our goals and we decided we were ready to be "all in."  This meant that we had a lot of things to evaluate starting with coaches, how many race...

Nothing happens unless first we dream.
It has been a long time since I have posted on here...I couldn't even remember my password!  I'm back, at least for today.  :)  I recently saw this 5 minute video.  It was relatable to all athletes, but it was specific to gymnastics - the sport that started...

If your dreams don’t scare you, they aren’t big enough.
After finishing Ironman Lake Placid in July last year, my
focus should have shifted to healing my hip/glute so that I could have a strong
2015 triathlon season, but instead I got scared away from what would happen if
I wasn’t able to get better and couldn’t...

CLE Marathon: Set A Goal So Big You Can't Achieve It Until You Grow Into The Person Who Can
On Saturday night, after watching some inspirational
youtubes and reading some quotes to motivate me, I turned the light off and
closed my eyes around 10:00pm.   I am not
one to have a restless night of sleep the night before a race, but Saturday
night was ...

CLE Marathon: Maybe it's not about the happy ending - maybe it's about the story.
I don’t know where to begin on this one.   In the 5 weeks leading up to this race I
think I told Anthony three or four different times that I was not going to
race.   Maybe if I was feeling up to it, I
would switch to the half marathon and just run for fun,...

Get Faster with Foot Skills and Drills!
As I mentioned in my last
post, this year my focus has shifted back to running for the season in order to
chase my Boston dream and a marathon PR (or two!).  With this shift in focus, my husband (my
coach for 2015!) and I sat down, put our coach hats on, an...

Change of Plans!! (Our real 2015 race schedule)
So, after we took lots of time to plan the “perfect” race
season, the Challenge New Albany race was cancelled.   So we were back to the drawing board.   The thing is, this race getting cancelled got
me to thinking.   I realized that I REALLY
want to run the...
