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…

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…

Woohoo…

It’s pumpkin spice latte time and the Tri-belles just got an UPGRADE…now we can share all of Marjan’s awesome videos and my ridiculous Boomerangs 🙂 I had the most perfect mellow weekend complete with a hilly bike ride, DIY fashion projects and Sunday brunch with a girl friend. I have pretty much been a been…

M.I.A

I have been trying to write this blog post for so long now that the topic and headline have changed at least 4 times 🙂 The past few months have been so crazy, I have barely had time to think. But, I am starting to see a light at the end of the tunnel with…

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…
