When I first saw someone posting about FOMO on social media, I had no idea what they were talking about. I actually had to search for the definition because I was curious. Fear of missing out. It’s a real thing. Back in the day, before the internet and social media, no one had any idea […]
Read More FOMO. It’s real.
It’s been a cold December already. We dipped into the single digits earlier this year than in the past. I’ll admit it, I really wasn’t ready. Thankfully, we didn’t stay there too long, so I can’t complain. We’re also getting closer to the holidays, so there’s no racing that’s pending right now. There’s no training […]

Makes you think of Dory, doesn’t it? Last year at about this time, I saw something interesting in my social media feed. Some of my friends/acquaintances had done a swim challenge. I had just done my first swim meet in a long time, and had been looking for more events to do in the pool. […]

The older I get, the easier it is to admit when I’m wrong. The past few years, I have continued to learn more about myself through my interactions with others. I have also learned that spending quiet time alone really helps me focus better. As the kids get another year older, and I slow down […]

I know I’ve written about my 9 year old before, but I have to boast a little for her again. You see, she is such a driven kid. Nothing stands in her way. Once she sets her sights on something, that’s it. It’s just a matter of time before she achieves her goal, and then […]

Usually, July is my craziest month of the year. I always have way too much going on and my anxiety level goes through the roof. This year was no different. If you have been following my blogs, you probably have a feel for what I’m talking about. A lot of things go down in July. […]

It’s easy to get caught up in things going on around you. Before you realize what’s happening, you’ve changed directions and are heading somewhere completely different than you were aiming for. Sometimes, this is a good thing – and sometimes, it’s not. When I started doing multi-sport events, it just kind of happened. I was […]

This week has been a bit rough around the edges. Lots of things floating around in my head at the moment. Let’s rewind… Last Sunday, just a few short days ago, I was scheduled to complete an Olympic Triathlon. I haven’t done this distance for about 4 years, so, needless to say, I was looking […]

It’s Spring. It’s May. May and I have a love/hate relationship. I enjoy the springtime. I look forward to the colors, of course. But I love to see the green stuff even more. The bright green leaves give me a sense of peace, and somehow, I feel more energetic when I look out of the […]

Another successful attempt to involve my kids in running. These two accompanied me to their first official trail race today. It was so fun to see them take in a new experience. Aiden is what I call a reluctant runner; he balks when I suggest a run, but then he returns from his run grinning […]
