13.1

13.1

So, I did it. Well, actually I haven’t done it. But I’m going to do it. I will press the “pay” button and have registered myself (and Kevin) for our very first HALF MARATHON. I pressed it. WTFWTFWTF This is the same feeling I had as I was contemplating my first Tri. The self doubt. … Continue reading

How Do I Meal Prep?

How Do I Meal Prep?

 “I want to eat more clean but that shit takes forever during the busy week without prep.” A good friend of mine asked for some tips in the form of a post, so I’m a kind enough soul to oblige. I honestly think people try and get too fancy when they start eating clean and over … Continue reading

5k Epiphany

5k Epiphany

Here it is: I am no longer an athlete…but I will be one again. It’s incredible how quickly you lose it when you don’t train all the damn time. Wow! My morning started out GREAT!

Why you rain on me?

Why you rain on me?

Look how excited I was after the ride was over…the only time it wasn’t raining. So, Up the Creek Without a Pedal was – let’s just say I needed a damn paddle. It rained Oh dear God did it rain. It rained lightly, it rained in torrential downpours, it rained for an hour…it didn’t stop … Continue reading

Broken Bone Athlete

Yesterday was the day I once upon a time dreaded: my yearly physical. Ya’ll – it was awesome. I was informed that I have the blood pressure of an athlete. WHAT?! Me? (dear body, catch up.) At first I was panicking because I thought something had to have been wrong for it to be that … Continue reading
