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.

    My arms don't work

    elbowglitter.com 18 Jun '17, 9pm

    Thankfully, I showered at the gym the night before. I like to take a second shower in the morning after swimming to help get the chlorine smell off of my body, but I had to skip that this morning. I slapped on some makeup, brushed my teeth, grabbed some clothes, piled my hair on top o...

  • Iron Girl Bike Course - Take Two

    Sounds as if you had a very good bike ride. I also feel more confident about my rapidly approaching triathlon after a session at the beach where the swim is going to take place. My trainer loaned me a wet suit and I was amazed at how much less effort (compared with YMCA pool) was invo...

    I caught this commercial the other night while on the treadmill. It really resonated with me and is worth the watch. No, this isn’t a sponsored post, I just loved the message.

  • What did I just do?

    After all the testing I underwent with my weird heart and having to slow down my running permanently, I said that I would never do a marathon, that I was destined to be a half marathoner. But then I talked to some friends. Friends who said “We want to get the 20th Anniversary Medal.” ...

    Gladwell Thresholds and the Galloway Method

    elbowglitter.com 21 May '17, 1pm

    Last week, I started listening to Malcolm Gladwell’s podcast, Revisionist History . I nearly skipped episode 3, The Big Man Can’t Shoot because it was about pro-basketball players, and since I’m not into pro-basketball, I figured it wouldn’t interest me. Oh, how wrong I was. In a nuts...

    No-Spend month has not gone as planned. In fact, I spent more this month than in any month this year. My dilapidated fence finally bit the dust. When I bought the house, I knew the fence was something that would need to be replaced, but I was just putting it off as long as possible. T...
