Racing for Two

Friday, September 20th, 2013

At the end of June I competed in two triathlons, and while I wanted to share about them, due to circumstances and my new work situation I didn’t feel like it was the right time to share. But, now that some time has passed, I no longer need to stay mum about my summer races. […]

Monday, March 25th, 2013

Triathlon Update

Seven Things: About Triathlon Training

Thursday, March 8th, 2012

1. I’ve wanted to do a triathlon since I was 20.  At that point I don’t know that I had ever run a complete mile outside of middle school gym class.  I started the Couch to 5k program and taught myself how to run.  (I did however swim semi-regularly, and swimming a half mile or […]
