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:…

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…

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…

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…

Ironman Florida 2016

WOW! So IM Florida has come and gone and what an experience it was. It was exactly one year ago this week that I had my knee surgery and that Marjan and I signed up for Florida. I had so many moments of doubts over the past year that I wouldn’t be strong enough to…

Santa Cruz 70.3… Uffff

Santa Cruz 70.3!  A weekend full of diversity!  A Colombian who is capable of giving the expression “uffff” endless meanings, a Canadian, a Persian that grew up in Sweden, a Mexican or two, a few “blondies”, a Japanese, a South Korean, and more. I might have missed an ethnicity but needless to say we were a…

Train Insane or Remain the Same

A few months back, after some my some of my amigas kept raving about ClassPass, I decided to give it a try. I recently cancelled my membership at Equinox because I travel during the week and can no longer make it to any of the classes I used to attend. By the way, if you…

#Throwback Thursday…because it took a week to post!

Wow! It’s been a while! Thanks’ Dom for keeping us updated while I have been on a writing hiatus. First… let’s give a shout out to all the athlete’s who raced Vineman in Napa Valley last weekend. Dominique, Marjan, and I all did that race last year and it was fantastic! It was also Marjan and…
