I hate to admit defeat. But the white flag has gone up and I surrender. I cannot do it all. I thought I could hold onto my one triathlon race of the season but yesterday I finally realized that as a new, first-time mom, I'm actually in quadrathlon training (the... Continue reading

Actually, the print wasn't even that fine--it was a normal font size. Being so jazzed about the possibility of running a half-marathon I just missed it. "Really, you're running 8 mile long runs in week two?", my friend John asked me. "Yeah", I said, "I want to do a half... Continue reading

First, I have to give it up to all the women who give birth and then manage to get back on their training program. I didn't give birth but find myself needing to work on my "baby weight" nonetheless. Lesson number one: sitting on the couch keeping another human alive... Continue reading

Can one really have too many granolas? I don't think so. I've blogged about my cereal habits over at Cookin' in the 'Cuse and yes, the quest for delicious mix-ins to add to my beloved Mu Mu Muesli continues. Kelly, who blogs over at My Life as aTrimommy, is hosting... Continue reading

I actually began planning my 2011 race schedule just days after the Iron Girl Tri back in August. I was still feeling the endorphins from my first triathlon so let's just say...that first list was long. But now that I've signed up for my base-training program which begins in January,...

1. A latte is not a hydration beverage. Since when do I think that 2 cups of water make for being "well hydrated"? I can totally see how it happend, though. When I wake up at 5:30 in the morning to review my sermon and teaching notes for Sunday, then... Continue reading

Dear Bike, You are the one--my ticket to ride, my youth serum, my speed rush. I haven't even given you a name and yet I love you. All it took was 25 miles on a beautiful day to remind me of how perfect we are together. I remember nearly ten... Continue reading

I went to sleep last night craving kale and woke up this morning fiending for a brick--workout that is. I'm not sure what my body is trying to tell me--eat more veggies? Get in the pool? Maintain your fitness? So I got up before the crack and got myself to... Continue reading

Okay, so I've never done a race report before--though I read them all of the time. And I'm not sure how much there is to say about a race that took not much longer than it will take me to think and write about it but here goes. The Arc... Continue reading

Yeah, we'll put this in the category of things I thought I'd never experience: race envy. I'm sure this isn't new for other people but I never thought I go to a race only to find myself wondering why I wasn't joining in the fun. That's how I felt about... Continue reading

There are so many great triathlon blogs to read out there one needs to make sure it doesn't interfere with training. But check out DC Rainmaker who is having a give-away of the Garmin Forerunner 310XT. Ray's blog is my new go-to resource for in depth reviews on all kinds... Continue reading

Last night, while noting that I was not indulging in fudge pops at our annual ice cream social, a colleague asked me what I drink. I began to run down my fairly short list, feeling quite puritanical: water, tea, wine, coffee, fresh vegetable juice, water mixed with recovery drinks/ powders... Continue reading

I don't know how it is that I've only just now come to know this poem--First Lesson by Philip Booth. All of my Fleet Feet Tri teammates and most everyone else knows how I struggle(d) with the swim portion of triathlon. Everyone has a weakness in this sport but at... Continue reading

One of the great things about triathlon is what it has done for my health. I used to think that getting older meant that recovering the health and vigor of one's youth was no longer possible. Instead I've found that I'm in better shape than I've ever been. Ever. I'm... Continue reading

After five years of blogging at Cookin' in the 'Cuse I guess I just can't help it. I need a place to muse, record, dream and contemplate the triathlon/multisport lifestyle that has become as much part of my life as eating. So here I am--trying to keep up, keep track,... Continue reading
