Whistler 70.3

Whistler 70.3 2017 was a great race! Dom and I both signed up earlier this year and we were excited to do an Ironman event with some of our other team members. We had 4 people that raced the half and 3 that did the full. We also had a pretty amazing cheer squad. Pre-Race:…

5 Things I am Obsessed with Right Now…

Two, sometimes three workouts a day, 9pm bedtimes and a laundry basket that smells like a football team’s locker room are just a few of the joys of training for a triathlon! My whole life seems to be revolving around this stuff right now (which I am embracing completely) and with the training has come…

Success?

When I was in the process of looking for a new job I used a great recruiter to help me refine my resume (Emily Liou). She posted this question on LinkedIn recently and it really made me wonder. I know that this is a common career question, but I don’t know that I have ever…

Be Brave

Be Brave. Take Risks. Nothing can substitute experience. ~ Paulo Coelho I’ve wanted to take a solo trip for some time. A few weeks ago, I had that urge, looked at some random plane tickets, and found that tickets from LAX to Havana Cuba were a great price! Cuba was a trip that I’ve been…

DIRT

Lately we’ve been taking training off road more and more! Two weeks ago Dom, Marjan and I went mountain biking in Blackstar Canyon because the winds were INSANE for being on the road. Yes I am completely aware that we are spoiled here in SoCal. Marjan and I both grew up in tundra like conditions…

Possession

I am not sure who, or what has possessed my body, but I am going to go with it!!! A switch has been flipped and for some reason I am feeling more focused and driven to train than ever. We are still 3 months out from Whistler 70.3 and waking up at 5:30am for swim practice…

Food for the Brain

I often ask myself the question…what the hell did we do before iPhones? My whole life (sadly) revolves around this little palm-sized gadget. I check my emails, Strava, the weather, Google every random question that pops into my head, take photos, snoop on friends in all corners of the globe on social media…oh, and OCCASIONALLY…

Did we officially kick off summer this weekend!?

Happy Earth Day! I hope you were able to get outside and enjoy this fabulous place we call Earth. Seriously… Mother Nature kicks A$$! Today we did 60 miles to San Clemente and back and it felt like we officially kicked off training for Whistler in July. This whole week we have all stepped up…

Behind the Rocks…

The thing I love the most about my triathlon girlfriends is that they are truly the most adventurous bunch of women I’ve ever met. Last weekend was a true testament to that fact as we road tripped to Utah for the Behind the Rocks 30k trail race! We got to spend loads of quality time together…

Refreshed and Ready for the Next Challenge.

This week is the beginning of an exciting new chapter in my life! I hit reset and managed to spend the last seven days shedding the old and embracing the new in preparation for this fresh start. A week and a half ago I had my last day at the ad agency I have called…

Holiday Adventure

There is less than a week until Christmas, and we have finally decided on our annual Christmas road trip destination! This year we will be driving to Jackson Hole, Wyoming for some serious snow activities…I can’t wait! They got 6 feet of fresh powder yesterday, so it should be a VERY white Christmas (it is also…

Never go to a race without DuctTape

So this post is about the other Tri-Belle that did IM Florida. Marjan is definitely the creative one in the group and she is always making the best videos to capture all of our races and other fun adventures. Seriously, her videos make you feel like you are right back on the course, re-living the…
