My Fitness Life, In a Box

This month, I’m participating in wego health‘s health activist writers’ month challenge: a month of writing prompts for posts to talk about my health and how I share it with all of you here. I’m completely unsure if I’ll be able to keep up with it, but I’m going to try. I’m not going toContinue Reading »

Everyone Gets Dropped the First Time

Yesterday, I entered my first ever bike race with my new cycling team. I was trying to be excited about it, but I just wasn’t. I knew I wasn’t in as good of shape as I wanted to be. I knew my training wasn’t what I’d wanted it to be by this point in time.Continue Reading »

On Tap for 2012

I can’t believe it, but 2011 is almost over. In just 3 short days, we’ll be bidding adieu to this year and welcoming in the next one. Personally, it can’t come soon enough. It’s not that 2011 was a horrible year, but it certainly could have been better. From the horrible gum graft to theContinue Reading »

About That…

Remember last month when I was all, “I’m getting my fitness on! I mean it this time! I even have a plan! Nothing can stop me now!” Those were, shall we say, famous last words. Since then I’ve made just about zero progress on those goals thanks to a series of unfortunate circumstances. The weekContinue Reading »

LIVESTRONG Challenge 2009

It’s taken me a while to get aroung to writing this report.  Partially because I’ve been artificially busy at work and partially because I had to get some perspective on it.  I signed up for the race back in March when I was heavily in my, “Well, if I can’t run then I’ll just beContinue Reading »

Things I Have Learned While Not Running

As much as I hate to admit it, the gimpy foot is, well… still kind of gimpy.  I can run a couple of miles here and there, but if I try to do so with any sort of regularity, the gimpiness returns.  Happily, I’ve found enough other activities to do that this no longer givesContinue Reading »

Lake Stevens 70.3: A Long, Long Day

First of all, thanks so much to everyone who commented, e-mailed, Twittered or messenger pigeoned their support and good wishes for the race. I shut the computer down after posting the entry and I can’t even tell you how awesome it was to turn on my phone post-race and see all of the comments andContinue Reading »

Issaquah Triathlon

Saturday morning the tri season officially got started around here with the Issaquah Triathlon. It was a sprint distance event, and I did it mostly because a) it would be fun and b) it would give me a chance to see how the half-ironman training was progressing. Was I making progress? Or was I goingContinue Reading »
