  • Product Review: Extend Nutrition

    I am a big snacker. I almost always have a morning snack and an afternoon snack in between meals so that I don’t turn into a crazy hangry person. And since a lot of time I am at work, those snacks need to be convenient. Typical go-to snacks are things like Larabars, Kind Bars, granola […]

  • A Dream 10 Years In The Making

    When we started Girls on the Run Serving Maricopa and Pinal Counties 11 years ago, we honestly had no clue what we were doing. We learned everything as we went along, including how to organize a 5K. At the end of every GOTR season, the girls across the Valley all come together and run an […]

You’ve spent an entire year training for the race and then just like that it’s over and you no longer have anything to look forward to. I’ve […]

  • Ironman Coeur d’Alene Race Recap

    (The first Ironman blog post about the days leading up to the race can be found here.) I surprisingly got a good night sleep Saturday night – I was actually very calm about the race and had no problems falling asleep – and woke up at 3:45 feeling rested and ready.

  • Ironman Coeur d’Alene: The Days Leading Up To The Race

    Where do I even begin to write about the entire Ironman experience? Just sitting down to write about it is a little intimidating. Let me start with the days leading up to the race… I think just as excited as I was for the Ironman, I was equally excited that I was going to get […]

  • Pre-Race Affirmations with Ashley Crossman

    Current status: standing in front of the mirror and saying, “I am strong enough, I am brave enough, and doggone it, I can do this!” (If you are too young to get this joke from SNL, don’t tell me – I’ll feel really old). Seriously, though, my pre-race nerves are in a good place right […]

  • Trained, Prepared, Healthy, and I Can’t Believe This Is Actually Happening

    You know how sometimes you sign up for something or make plans for something so far in advance that you feel like it’s not actually real? This has been me for the past year. I set out to train for an Ironman, but I was so focused on the training and the race was so […]
