Wedding Flying At Me
So the countdown is really on now. 67 days until my wedding. And I'm finally hauling my ass out of bed in the mornings to get my workouts in and tone back up for this shindig!
I have not been nearly as great about it as I should have been ... Read more

2) Keep Running Triathlons
3) Feel good in my skin - regardless of if that's 120 or 130 pounds
4) Foc... Read more

1.) Maintain my ability to run 5K minimum (Yes! We run probably 1-2 a month in fact. We!! Yes I love someone who runs wi... Read more
Olympic Triathlon Complete!
I ran my first Olympic Triathlon this weekend, and I worry that it may be my last as well. My time was OK - it was where I thought it would be - between 3.5 - 4 hours. Officially it was 3:40:46. So this was not bad in and of itself. But I collap... Read more
July? Wait, what?
So from this side of my summer vacation, that big long triathlon I signed up for in December is coming at me real fast. I'm so not ready!! I have 2 months to get ready though, and I fully intend to do that!
I have a mini tri this weekend, a... Read more
I hit a really good spin class Monday evening, and then yesterday was a yoga day for me. I really need to get back to regular yoga - it's so good for me!! And I want to get back to some weight lifting as well on a regular basis. Yoga is strength... Read more

Training Update 1/2/15
Happy New Year!
So over the Christmas holiday, beyond eating too many cookies, I ran a couple of times with my uncle. Slow runs, but longer distance, which was really good for me to realize I still have the endurance that I worked on but ma... Read more
Yesterday I brought my gym bag with me so I could go straight (pun intended) to the Y and swim after work. Got in the pool for about 45 minutes for a total of 82 lengths. I did the math yesterday on the distance for the Olympic tri, and I need 6... Read more
I'm not missing, I swear!
This year has been a rollercoaster ride. I pushed really hard to move up the ladder at my job, and got nowhere, so I moved on... to a better job, better pay, but more stress. I work longer hours some days, but nothing too outrageous. I've mainta... Read more
I'll admit to being a little on the cranky side this morning. Went to bed basically on time last night. About 8:30. Read for a little bit, and asleep by probably 9. But woke up at 2:30 this morning and couldn't get back to sleep. That is so very... Read more
Goal setting with friends
I find myself a part of a local group of women, which is very good for me. And this past weekend, six of us sat down together to ruminate on our 2013 goals and results, and to share our 2014 goals. I did not share all of my goals because we did ... Read more
Jan 21 - a year later.
So on this day last year, at about 10:00am, my little ordered and planned world fell apart.
It was on that day that my partner of 11 years told me that the plans we made for starting a family were not something she could be a part of anymo... Read more
When I started this journey a couple years ago, I used my blog to keep me accountable. And while I do work out with a friend pretty regularly now, I've not felt like I've been very consistent lately and I want to get back to that. I'm still at m... Read more
