A New Destination
History sure has a way of repeating itself. Four weeks out
from IMAC 70.3 and I’m filing a claim for reimbursement. This has been a really
hard decision because I’m trying to convince myself that things are ok and I
can keep going. But in reality, they aren...

Atlantic City Tri Race Report
I signed up for Tri AC Olympic in 2016 and
was unable to race due to my back. Since this is pretty much the course for
IMAC 70.3, it was a must do on my schedule for this year. I normally always
look at previous year results before going into a race. I like...

Stafford Tri Race Report
After Independence triathlon and a not so
great swim, I knew I needed to shake that off and get back into open water
STAT. If I was going to race again, I wanted something with a bike course that
I could push a bit and not worry about how my back would feel...

Independence Tri Race Report 2017
A month or so ago I had a minor setback with my back. What
started as infrequent aches through the winter became daily aches and then a constant pain
in my lower back and left butt check. Same issue I had that blew up and caused
me to lose feeling in my leg...

Shamrock Race Report
On Saturday it was pretty certain that we were going to have
nasty weather for the race on Sunday. Rather than stress about it, I hovered
over a jigsaw puzzle trying to keep myself calm and occupied.* After dinner I went

Time for revenge
The hay is in the barn. The work is done. You are ready. I know it’s true but there’s this little voice deep inside
my head that whispers, “Did I do enough?” “Can I hold this pace?” As I go
through the motions this week leading up to the race, my job has be...

What It Takes
During my 20 miler last week, I was thinking about what it
takes to reach a goal and how I got to this point of feeling trained, confident
and prepared. A few things stuck out in my mind, which are not secrets by any
stretch, but worth noting. I think a lot...

Negative Thoughts
It was raining and windy and cold as anything. For those that know me, it was a perfect day for napping. But instead I snuck my way on to the track and started warming up. Just thinking about this workout in the days leading up to it, made me a little anxio...

Finding My Voice
I want to preface this
by saying this is the scariest thing I’ve ever done. I’m actually shaking with
the thought of posting this. But I’m putting this out there because I don’t
believe we should sweep mental illness under the carpet. We need to share and

Spilled Milk
Last Fall I ironed out my race season for 2016 and set a
goal that was really going to challenge me. While it was going to be hard and it
was going to hurt, I was mentally ready to do what it took to get me there. When
my back threw a fit in November, I nev...
