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…

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…

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…

Better Late Than Never Race Report

There is nothing like waiting 3 weeks to share exciting news to suck the enthusiasm out of it…;) My life is in hectic mode right now, between crazy busy work days and attempting to plan a small wedding this poor Tri-belles blog has taken a back seat. Sorry, I’ll be better. Ok, I will cut…

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…

Guilt Free

Gaaghhhh this has been the longest week of my life…and its only Thursday. Sigh. I just got back from a 10 day trip to Ecuador and the real world is sucking big time. Take me back to fresh coconuts and hammock sessions!! Ecuador is a truly amazing place and now I understand why my boyfriend wanted to go…
