In the early part of week 3, I caught a bug that quickly flatlined me. I tried my best to work through it -- meaning, I worked from home for as much as humanly possible. I tried to stay coherent on work phone calls, and I hope my emails and data analyses made sense. I'm … Continue reading Week 3+4 Desert’s Edge Tri Training Recap: Out Sick!
For Surf City, I was excited to fly in to So Cal to pace my best friend for her very first half marathon! The day before, I taught a full-day design bootcamp. It was a full class, so I was on my feet the entire day. Months beforehand, I had registered for the race and … Continue reading Race Recap: Surf City Half Marathon 2018

Hi folks! It's that time of year again were I announce my fundraising efforts for the 2014 racing season. Since I have (haphazardly) already finished my first race of the season (with at least seven more to go between now and December) it's time to unveil my charity of choice this year... A couple of … Continue reading 2014 Charity Fundraising Announcement: Stand Up to Cancer
Hi party people! Four weeks in to my new training regimen and I'm feeling good. Still squeezing workouts into random time pockets in my calendar but at least I feel like things are somewhat back to normal. Week 2 was particularly momentous because I got some wonderful news: my fracture was completely healed up, and … Continue reading Week 2+3 Seafair Sprint Tri Training: Stay Overzealous, Friends

Triathlon is definitely not a solitary sport. Sure, you train alone, but it's really the journey … Continue reading Triathlon Is Not A Solitary Sport: Here’s 70.3 Miles of Dedications
Oh boy. I got one good training week in and then BAM -- I was hit with another twist to the ankle on my morning run. I was down by half my training time this week (week #2), and I've reloaded it on week 3 hoping that it doesn't overload my week 4 which, coincidentally, … Continue reading Week 2+3 HITS Palm Springs Training: A Twisted Ankle, and Then Some
This post will be relatively short since I spent week 17 in massive amounts of pain and eventually surgery. I spent week 18 recovering from my surgery, considering my racing/training options, hopped up on pain medications, handling personal family issues, and mentally prepping for a half-marathon since I couldn't actually physically train. So, even though … Continue reading Week 17 + 18 Ironman Louisville Training: Surgery + Post-Op Recovery
So I've had Rock n Roll Portland on my list for quite awhile now. I was really happy to knock this one off my list! This particular half marathon was very important to me since it was my first official long run since I sprained my ankle a few months ago. Thankfully, it held up … Continue reading Race Recap: 2013 Rock n Roll Portland Half Marathon
After a painful weekend, I think my ankle is well on the road to recovery. I'm finally able to walk without limping too much and I can finally ambulate crutch-free! (Plus, I was pretty sure that I was more of a hazard with my crutches than without.) Here are the things I did to get … Continue reading How To Recover From a Sprained Ankle
