This first week of the new year is surely a sign of things to come. I started my first week of massage therapy school and it was pretty intense.

This week I clocked 21.5 hours of classroom instruction and … Continue reading Staying Busy During The First Week of 2012
I've decided in the short amount of time that I've been working out that there are two iPhone apps that I could not live without. One I've been using for almost a year now...the other, I've been using for just a few days. What's great is that I think they really complement each other.

Despite having shown up at the expo later than I wanted to, I … Continue reading My First Triathlon Experience: The 2011 LA Triathlon
After months of preparation, the big day is finally here! The LA Triathlon starts in less than 12 hours. OY! I'm incredibly nervous but mostly excited. I think I finally have all of my effects in order -- wetsuit, trisuit, arm warmers, racing belt, bike (and all the things that come with it), helmet, shoes, … Continue reading The Big Day Is Finally Here
