  • Training Update, PT Breakthrough, Tri Camp, and a Wrist Injury

    Wow – it’s already mid-February and so far I’ve failed miserably at my goal of blogging more often. I wish I had a better excuse than “I’ve been really busy,” but honestly, that’s most of it. Also, it’s a little difficult to type with a potentially broken wrist (more on that later). First, a training […]

  • It Was Only A Matter Of Time

    I knew it was only a matter of time…Although I really wanted to get through my entire Ironman training without a single bike accident, I’ve heard way too many stories to know that that was not likely. I have to admit that I am terrified to ride on busy streets, especially in Phoenix where the […]

  • Reflecting Back and Looking Forward

    It’s that time of year again….the time when everyone looks back on their year and reflects on what went right, what went wrong, and what they want to do differently in the coming year.

    There are a lot of tips when it comes to running safely by yourself – wear bright colors, don’t wear headphones, run routes that you are familiar with, tell someone where you are going and when you will return, etc. Let’s face it: Running alone can be scary sometimes, especially this time of year when […]

  • Review: Mizuno Wave Rider 18

    I was provided a pair of the Wave Rider 18′s and compensated for my review. However, I was not required to write a positive review; all thoughts and opinions are my own. As part of a Fitfluential campaign, I was given a pair of Mizuno Wave Rider 18s to wear, test, and review. I have […]

  • Race Recap: SOMA Half Ironman

    This past Sunday was my big fall race – the SOMA half Ironman that I have been training really hard for. I really didn’t want to set any expectations for myself other than simply finishing, although in my head I really wanted to try to finish right around 6 hours. I hadn’t a clue how […]

  • An Honest Look At How I’m Feeling Come 70.3 Race Week

    It’s really hard for me to believe that my race week is actually here – the race I’ve been training so hard for over the past 5 months. I’m equal parts anxious, nervous, excited, and “let’s just get it over with.” It’s been a long time since I’ve taken on something new like this. I’ll […]
