  • Quick Training Update

    The countdown is on. Less than 6 weeks to go until race day, which means that training is starting to get tough. Up until this point, training has not been a huge, exhausting endeavor. A few hours on the bike each Saturday and shorter long runs on Sundays – no big deal. That all changed […]

  • Product Review: SLS3 Compression Sleeves & CSX Compression Socks

    I think you all know by now that I have a love of compression socks and sleeves. These days I wear them more often than not. I wear them every time I run and sometimes when I bike, and throughout the day and overnight for recovery. I know that the research is inconclusive as to […]

  • Race Report: Esprit de She Olympic Triathlon

    This past weekend was the Esprit de She Olympic triathlon in Tempe, AZ.

It always has a big turnout and is filled with a lot of serious athletes. I signed up for the Olympic distance option (there was also a sprint and super sprint) months ago when […]

  • Crisis Averted: Training Update

    As normal, with every training cycle, just when I think things are going so well, they suddenly take a turn for the worse. I thought that going to PT consistently every week would help keep this problem from presenting itself this time around, but apparently not. A few weeks ago my calf started to get […]

  • Things I Am Loving Right Now

    It’s been a while since I did a post about my favorite new things or did a product review, so let me share my latest obsessions with you all. Infinit Infinit is a sports nutrition product that was introduced to me a few months ago by my friend Stephanie, and I am so glad she […]

  • An Amazing Weekend at the Lifetime Training Camp

    This past weekend (Thursday night, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday morning) I had the chance to go to a Lifetime Triathlon Training Camp here in Scottsdale, Arizona. I’m not a member of Lifetime Fitness, but it was open to both members and non-members, and it was extremely cheap for a tri camp. The entire weekend was […]
