First, know that I just adore you both. I think you're cute and brilliant and incredibly damn funny. You're also fun to hang out with, and you have a great group of friends. I've thoroughly enjoyed our nightly rendezvous from 11pm to 12am. ... Read more
Questioning my intentions
Tuesday, February 03, 2009      4 comments

I'm training for a half marathon on Feb 22. I'm running another one two weeks later. Training has been going REALLY well. I ran my 10M long run Sunday at a 10:30 pace. For perspective, last May I ran a 10K in 10:30s. So I'm much faster now... Read more
Oh right, New Year's resolutions.
Sunday, January 04, 2009      2 comments

I'm not big on resolutions, so I'm just writing down some goals for 2009. 1. Finish three half marathons, including one under 2:15. 2. Finish a half Ironman, preferably under 7 hours but I'll take what I can get. 3. Run a sub-27-... Read more
Starbucks is evil

It all sounded so delicious. "We’ve combined Starbucks espresso with our premium European-style cocoa blend used in our Signature Hot Chocolate and steamed milk, and topped it with whipped cream and a touch of chocolate powder. This sophis... Read more

Meet the newest addition to my biking family: the CycleOps Fluid 2 indoor trainer. I'm psyched about this baby. (Plus I love the name.) I slacked off in my cycling the last mo... Read more

Good streak going

I've tracked my food for three days. Ran 4.5M on Tuesday, 2.75M yesterday, and spin class today. Tomorrow is a 3-5M run and an hour of weights. Saturday is TBD; likely either spin class or a swim. Sunday will be my first triathlon training under... Read more
Getting back on track
Tuesday, November 11, 2008      3 comments

In the past two or three months, I've veered off course. I got injured and burnt out and slacked off in training. Which is OK, it's going to happen every now and again. But while I was exercising very inconsistently (one to three times a week) a... Read more
New shoes and new goals
Monday, October 20, 2008      2 comments

So I made it through my first half. In 2:37:19, which I'm totally OK with. I was ahead of my plan until miles 10 and 11, when I slowed to about a 13 minute mile, and then I picked it up at the end (my last mile was actually my fastest). My overa... Read more
Oh, it's SO on.

After heel pain that is (at least for now) resolved, and then an overcompensation pain on the outside of my feet for the past week, I am cleared to run Saturday. So I will be out there with my shoes that are wrong for me and my inserts that t... Read more
New goal
Monday, September 29, 2008      2 comments

So when I decided to do this half marathon thing a few months ago, I figured my goal would be under 2.5 hours. That's about an 11:30 pace. Since my 10K pace had been down at about a 10:05 pace, I figured I could probably make that time and still... Read more
I will not be thwarted
Thursday, September 25, 2008      3 comments

I was in bed at 10:30pm. I got up and went to the gym for spin class this morning, only to discover that it had been canceled. I sat my butt on one of the bikes and did my own spin class for an hour. Then I did weights with my trainer. Tom... Read more
Oh, right. THIS is why I'm fat.
Wednesday, September 24, 2008      3 comments

I've developed some serious pain in my right heel, which means I haven't been running (yet again) for weeks. Basically since before that last women's tri, when I was deathly slow b/c of the heel. I skipped a tri last weekend. I'm skipping anothe... Read more
At least I'm faster than J Lo
Tuesday, September 16, 2008      3 comments

Yuck. For some reason, Jennifer Lopez doing a triathlon seriously irritates me. Maybe b/c she apparently thought her athletic endeavors are so much more newsworthy than those of Michael Phelps? All I can say is, if I had some top-notch trainer a... Read more
