It’s not what you think

Lisa

I was walking my dog Lisa in the neighborhood and I said hello to a woman who was walking toward us. She just ignored me and looked down. I thought she was so rude! Everyone in my neighborhood is so friendly, we always greet each other as we pass. At the very least with a…

I forgot how to swim

I wrote this three years ago when I was training for my first triathlon and I’m finally publishing it. I’ve come a long way in my swimming since then. This is where I wish I were swimming, not where I actually swam.   My big breakthrough finally happened in mid March when Coach Christine told…

Trail running at Solitude

This post was written two years ago, just getting around to publishing it now. My family and I are spending July in Utah My husband floats in and out since he still has to work, but my son and I are lucky enough to stay here all month. It’s been great to escape to heat…

Three new things

First of all dairy is not my friend. Lately I have been a little bit lax about my dairy intake. I’ve forgotten to order my salads without dairy on a number of occasions, my sister even called me out on Facebook. Thanks for looking out for me girl. In my defense the salad descriptions made…

Christine, my Team In Training coach, told me and my fellow teammates to foam roll to prevent injury while training for the Cap Tex Tri last year.¬† When I complained of knee pain she reminded me again. I have been a slacker with my…

Blue Norther Duathlon

Blue Norther Duathlon

This past March I completed the Blue Norther Duathlon at Texas Lutheran University with some of my Team in Training teammates. We ran 3.1 miles, rode 14 miles and then ran 3.1. I have never done anything like this before. Usually I just run 5K’s; to do two in one day and then bike was…

Skipping Practice

Bike practice | Exfoodie.com

My Friday night was spent drinking wine, laughing and hanging out. I ignored the fact that I had practice with my fellow Team in Training teammates the next morning. I did not put my bike rack on my car, put my tire pump in my car or mentally prepare for practice as I do most…
