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…

#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…

Tri-belles on the path…and we are dangerous

Happy HUMP DAY friends! Only 2 more days until the long weekend and an extra day of solid training. Woohoo!! Last week was another successful training week for me and I am feeling pretty good about the Xterra race next Sunday. Thankfully sprint distances don’t make me too nervous anymore 🙂 The girls and I switched up our…

Trail Happy

Staying motivated is one of the hardest things for me to master as a triathlete. I have a tendency to fade in and out. I will train really hard for something and then once the race Is over I take a few weeks off. I might decide I am sick of swimming and biking and…

Yoga…on a yacht!

Today was pretty cool. We did yoga…on a Yacht! Honestly there is not a day that goes by that I am not thankful where I live. Growing up in Michigan and living/ traveling all over the world, I’ve experienced every type of weather imaginable. Michigan is known for 80 degrees one day, snow the next!…

Highlights

WOW has it really been over a month since I last posted? Blogging EPIC FAIL!! In my defense… the last few weeks have been a crazy blur of work projects, non-stop activities and major life events. As per usual training has gotten pushed to the side. I would like to whine about how out of shape…

A Salute to Alexander Aciman

I have to admit that I had to google “reblogging” before I wrote this post. I wasn’t sure if it was proper blogging ettiquate! A fellow running friend shared this post on Facebook the other day and I seriously think I have read  it 15 times. Perhaps it is because I’m at the point in…

Race Week Randomness…

T minus 2 days until race day! As always, I have a good combo of excitement and butterflies to keep me energized. Also, as always I am doing a modified taper because I am never quite where I should be in my training. It doesn’t matter if it is my A race or C race, somehow…

Sunshine Problems

I can’t wait to be old and wrinkly…said nobody ever!! Well, thanks to a childhood spent basking in the ozone sparse rays of the South African sun, and adulthood in winter-less California, I am pretty much screwed! Haha. Unfortunately I waited until I turned 29 to really start worrying about this stuff, but as my Mom always says…better…
