5 days ago ... I'm a runner, a triathlete, a Disney Fan, and a curvy girl just trying to have fun in life. And maybe lose a few pounds along the way.

  • Happy Wedding Day!

    elbowglitter.com 29 May '16, 2pm

    I know that Katie has all sorts of running themed things planned for the wedding and I hope she lets me share some pictures with you (or better, shares them on her own blog). Also, she made us run a wedding 5K yesterday. And we all showed up. That’s friendship.

  • Worn out

    elbowglitter.com 28 May '16, 6pm

    This morning, I managed to hit my snooze alarm for an hour. Only 40 minutes late to work though, so I consider it a win. So what if I didn’t shower? (Side note – I showered after last night’s run, so I’m still clean. Really.) Then I couldn’t remember the name of my blog so I could pos...

  • How am I so awesome?

    Holidailies Prompt : Write the annual holiday card/brag letter for your family. 2008. Banner year for the household, let me tell you. In January, I celebrated a birthday. Survived another year. I think that’s something to be proud of. On a whim, I also decided to audition for the Cath...

    Number one, it’s against the rules. What’s the harm, you say? Well, the big issue with switching bibs is medical. If you are wearing a particular number and something happens to you, that number is used to identify you. Let’s say something terrible happens at the race and you are knoc...

    What's in my Transition Bag

    elbowglitter.com 15 May '16, 10am

    There is a lot of stuff on this list. One key is that I don’t keep it all at transition. What I like to do is put out the necessities at transition, then drop my bag back in my car or at my team tent. If that isn’t an option, then I pair down the items. Just about everything in the “o...

    Event Recap: 24 Hours of Booty

    elbowglitter.com 14 May '16, 2pm

    I wasn’t sure if I would be able to sleep well in a tent, but I crashed hard and got about 4 hours of sleep. Sunday morning, I got up, had breakfast, and headed back out. I wanted to get in another 30, which seemed reasonable. Those thirty miles were tough. Everyone was right when the...

  • Being a Bigger Runner or Triathlete

    elbowglitter.com 13 May '16, 6pm

    Gear can be tough. There are some awesome companies, like Sparkle Skirts , that carry up to 3XL (theirs is equivalent to a 24-26) for bigger female runners. And men have somewhat of an advantage in that football players tend to be big guys. They need wicking clothing to workout in, so...

    Book Review - Stronger by Jeff Bauman

    elbowglitter.com 16 Apr '16, 6pm

    Because of that now infamous picture of Jeff in the wheelchair, he is somewhat of a celebrity. People want to know how he is doing, which led to a lot of publicity requests. It was interesting to see how he chose who to speak to. The New York Times got interviews because they had sent...
