Rev 3 140.6 – The First Month

March 21st meant that Spring has officially started. But somehow we didn’t get the memo up here in cold country. The days are getting longer, but the skies are still grey and rainy. And looking out of my basement window at the last lingering snow piles and windblown yards makes it feel like the days of getting off the trainer and treadmill are never going to come. But train I must as Cedar Point is now only ‘gasp’ 5 months {Read More}

Rev 3 Cedar Point- the beginning

Wow, I can’t believe its march already. In some ways the winter has just dragged on but in other it has flown by. I’ve spent the past month hurried under a pile of deadlines, late night meetings, family emergencies and more days that I care to count at the emergency vet. That being said, not much training has been going on. But now that it’s March, all that is changing. This past week marked the first official week of 140.6 {Read More}

30 thoughts on turning 30

January is my birthday month, and this year it’s cause for even more celebration because I turn the big Three-Oh. As a special way of celebrating a milestone I wanted to take some time and reflect of how far I have come over the pas three decades and what this crazy roller coaster called life has taught me. So, without further ado, here is a summary of the thirty most important lessons I have learned.

Leave your ego at the edge of the treadmill

Back in late December, I sat down and dutifully worked on building a list of my triathlon goals for 2014. Defining, setting, and then pursuing my goals has never been a strength of mine and this year I want to change that. I decided to hold off on a post dedicated to my goals, but rather share them bit by bit as they fit into the different aspects of my Iron-training. One of my 2014 goals is to re-teach myself {Read More}

High Five to me

Awesome. Energizing. Difficult. Encouraging. Complete. These are all the different words that I was hoping I would be using to describe the first week of pre-season training. But alas, life got in the way this week, and just like that, all my best intentions went flying out the window. Between fighting the second week of this awful snot-fest and a family emergency, training took a 3rd row seat to life. The silver lining of the crazy-ness of this week was {Read More}

Back to life, back to reality

Happy New Year to each and every one of you! December was a whirlwind month for me filled with a wonderful vacation, Christmas, New Year and a nasty sinus infection. I love this time of year because you can feel the entire world slow down and re-focus on what is important. I embraced  December as an opportunity to disconnect with my digital life and spend time with my loved ones. January is such as exciting time filled with fresh anticipation, a {Read More}

The Honeymoon Phase

Y’all have heard that term Honeymoon Phase before? The magical time at the beginning of a new relationship when things are fresh and exiting. The future feels exhilarating. You and your new squeeze want to spend every waking minute together. You can’t stop thinking about each other. You check your phone every 30 seconds looking for a new message. Your ignore warning from those around you that things will not be perfect forever. In your mind, what could possibly go wrong? Iron-training {Read More}

So which one?

Of course I won’t leave my post about my big plans for 2014 just hanging out there. Big teasers like that need a bit more explanation including the what, when, where, and why. Without further ado, here are some of the gory details…

2014 Dreaming

I’ve been sitting back, relaxing and enjoying my fall break. But that does not mean the training has completely stopped. There is still some swim, bike, run happening up in here. Not too much, not too little. Just the right amount. Because before we know it, 2014 will be upon us. And I have some BIG plans for 2014.

A Fall Break

Everyone says that fall is marathon season, and I couldn’t agree more. The cool weather, and beautiful colors (well, at least for those of us luck enough to live in the New England area) make you want to get out and run. But for the first time in 3 years, I don’t have a fall race on the calendar. It has been a few years since I have been able to take a breath and enjoy the fall. Usually I am {Read More}
