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 »

Back to School, Back on Track

Those of you that follow me on Twitter may have noticed that, at the end of August, I did a bit of traveling.  By “a bit of traveling,” I mean that I spent two weeks driving around the Midwest, covering the area from Chicago to Detroit to Cleveland to Louisville with my longest stop inContinue Reading »

Stealth Racing: Seafair Sprint Triathlon

While I had a blast volunteering at Ocean Shores, I came back really wishing that I could be out there racing myself.  Still, I knew the knee wasn’t ready for the hard effort I’d put into a road 5k, so I just told myself to shelve that desire for a couple more months.  That workedContinue Reading »

Inspiration at Ocean Shores

Is one of your goals for the year to try a road race, trail race or triathlon?  Are you having troubleContinue 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 »
