Let the Olympic training begin

It is official! I am now 12 weeks out from my first Olympic triathlon. Training begins today! I started off well with a track workout this morning (not in the plan) and tonight I’d do a 50 min bike ride! To be honest I’m a little terrified of this race. When I signed up thereContinue reading “Let the Olympic training begin”

#TYR Swim Tuesday – normal person style

Ok so this is my easy week as next week starts my actual Olympic triathlon training. However, with all the excitement the last 2 weeks of meeting some of my tri heroes I wanted to post this! Every week my husband and I compare our swim workouts to the workout that Andy Potts posts onContinue reading “#TYR Swim Tuesday – normal person style”

A minor setback

So if you read my race report for Zooma and/or Dragonfly Heart Tri you know that I thought I was fighting an achilles issue. I knew it was even more of an issue when I was at my Team Challenge event weekend and walking uphill the 1.5 miles back to the car it started to seizeContinue reading “A minor setback”

Challenge AC – Day 1

I figured I would get this posted today because we won’t have internet access for the next 2 days. Apparently, it is $11 a day for internet at the Showboat. Yesterday we got all packed up and headed out to Atlantic City. We were looking forward to it since I don’t remember much of theContinue reading “Challenge AC – Day 1”

Team Challenge event weekend

So I had my first Team Challenge event weekend and it was amazing! I’m not sure I have ever cheered so hard! It is nice to finally be able to say I love my job. To be honest, I hope it lasts, lol. I can say that I have finally recovered from the lack ofContinue reading “Team Challenge event weekend”

Unveiling the Tribox

So I was very excited the other day to find out I was selected to be a Runnerbox Ambassador, but would also be reviewing the Tribox. I’ve received the Runnerbox before back when they started out to review (through a team) and as a gift.  They are great!! They have little sample of different thingsContinue reading “Unveiling the Tribox”

the little things add up

So since we really got into triathlons last year and have upped our games this season I’ve been making a list of all the things I need to stock up on for races. I’m actually in the process of making boxes of specific items that will travel with us to races (post on that coming soon).Continue reading “the little things add up”

The training plan

Over the last year I’ve really been trying to find where my motivation went. I just haven’t been enjoying my training like I used to. After some in-depth conversations with the hubby I realized that when I got into running it became a social thing. I always had a running partner or group or clubContinue reading “The training plan”


So as a Sweat Pink Ambassador I was given the opportunity to be a Vega Sport blogger. Basically, Vega sport sent me samples to try, which is awesome! This is an all vegan, plant-based, endurance assistance. About a year ago Jon and I made the decision to go vegetarian. Not long after that Jon declaredContinue reading “#fuelyourbetter”
