  • Review: Swanson Health Products

    When trying new things and testing products or businesses, I try really hard not to compare them to their competitors (if I’m familiar with their competitors). But admittedly, that’s sometimes really hard not to do. Let me try both ways – first with no knowledge of the competition, and then a quick comparison. The company […]

  • What Does a C-Section Scar have Anything to do with a Foot Injury?

    The body really is an amazing thing. It’s too bad I didn’t do well in biology or anatomy classes when I was younger, because now it all fascinates me. I’ve taken the past few weeks off of running and have instead been focusing on my biking and swimming because I’ve had a nagging pain on […]

  • Never Say Never

    Over the past year or so, I’ve grown so in love with triathlons that I actually believe it will be my lifestyle for as long as I’m able to exercise.

  • Product Review: Rocket Pure Anti-Chafe Balm and Foot Powders

    Rocket Pure is a company that was founded a few years ago (2012) in Bellingham, Washington out of the desire to find personal care products for athletes that were not filled with chemicals, but rather were made exclusively with natural ingredients. I am a huge believer in all-natural products, so when Rocket Pure sent me […]

  • Post-Race Thoughts

    I’m not going to sugarcoat it: the week post-Ironman was really tough. If you’ve ever run a marathon or half-marathon, you may be familiar with the post-race blues. 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.
