    While I’m away in Europe for work for a few weeks, I have a few guest posts from some awesome bloggers. Today’s post comes to you from Coco of Running with Perseverance with her strategy on how to stay fit on business trips. Since it’s the main focus of the month of February for me, I thought it was […]

    A funny thing happened while I was tapering for Rock n Roll DC Half Marathon. I had a “very DC” kind of week. Sure, I had the usual track workout on Wednesday – the last of the training program. And the Soul Cycle class with Mar on Thursday (pic in this Friday Five post).  But […]

  • 04/07/16--06:15: You Gotta Do What You Can
  • Hmm, regular training recaps were going to be coming, right? Right. Last week I had a crazy week, and this week I’ve had a host of challenges. I have some personal things going on that I’ll explain at a future date, but suffice to say my schedule is turned upside-down lately. So here’s the weekly training […]

    Today’s Friday Five starts with a confession: On Saturday I skipped my bike workout and went indoor rock climbing. My coach had a 25-mile bike ride, plus a 2-mile run on the training plan and it just didn’t happen. Fine, you may think that makes me not a not-so-dedicated triathlete, but sometimes you’ve got to […]

    Cardio. It can be the key to great fitness. But is it really? I love cardio – with a passion, in fact. It’s what makes me feel amazing, alive, like I’m working hard, and like I’m changing myself with every step. I can feel the calorie burn as I run the miles. It’s what’s gotten me to […]

    This post is sponsored by Mirum Shopper. All opinions are my own, including the fact that I sweat and need my favorite deodorant. Okay, fitness friends, let’s talk about something we are often too polite to talk about. Sweat. I’ll assume if you’re reading this blog, you are either active or want to be active. So if sweating isn’t already […]

  • 10/13/16--21:12: The Final Friday Five
  • It’s Friday. It’s a special Friday – the fnal Friday Five linkup. I don’t have a running, triathlon, or fitness-themed topic today. I don’t have this post packaged up in a bow with a fancy, pinnable image. I’m just going to talk honestly about blogging, friendship, and fitness. You see, as I mentioned in last Friday’s post, […]

    Throughout my fitness journey, I’ve not only become a runner and a triathlete, but I’ve also developed a love of yoga. Yoga has helped me de-stress, get stronger, find focus, and re-energize. It’s amazing how one activity can serve so many purposes. I try to incorporate yoga into my fitness routine regularly, whether it’s at a studio or at […]

  • 11/17/16--05:44: Zengo Cycle Review
  • It’s no secret that I’m a lover of indoor cycling classes. Sure, as a triathlete, the best possible training is to be riding my actual bike, but I’m not ashamed to admit that I’m a bit of cycling class addict and incorporate it into my training. Cycling classes are a fantastic workout, super motivating, and lots of […]

    Whew, this is the quietest I’ve been here. It’s not by design, it’s just been a busy time lately. But now… it’s ON. Everything seems A-OK with the sprained ankle. I’ve rested, I’ve recovered, and I’ve healed. And I’ve run. Healing an injury is stressful and confusing, but it’s all going well here in post-sprained-ankle-land. And […]

    And just like that… it’s Christmas this weekend. I always say it sneaks up on me more and more each year. But here it is, December 23, and I am mostly done with my shopping. I had to let some things go and prioritize what mattered the most, but I got the part-time job of […]

  • 04/07/17--08:42: From Russia, With Love
  • I’m writing this from Russia, with love. Kinda. More like with haste, fatigue, and a frazzled brain. It’s been an intense, whirlwind week in Russia on my business trip, and it’s not quite over. The jet lag coming over was not something unfamiliar to me. I don’t sleep much on planes, so the first 48 hours […]

  • 04/19/17--03:15: Jet Lag, Be Gone
  • The good thing about international travel is that when it’s over, you have an excuse for sleeping a lot. In my case, the problem with sleeping a lot was that life didn’t stop the moment I got back from Russia. I returned and life was rolling in full force. But I was jet lagged. Work didn’t stop – […]

  • 09/28/17--06:19: 6 Single Mom Workout Tips
  • Being a mom makes it hard to do things for yourself. But being a single mom makes a lot of things even more challenging. Simple things like running out to the store, taking the dog for a walk, or grabbing takeout are not so simple when they involve getting three kids out the door to accompany you.

  • 01/04/18--05:41: New Year, New Goals?
  • The new year always offers the feeling of a fresh start, a fresh perspective. A blank canvas upon which to write a new chapter of your story. I’ve been reflecting on what I want my 2018 “story” to include. Last year, my fitness goals were so clear – I had IRONMAN Lake Placid 2017 etched […]
