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.

    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...

    Almost four months after I discovered a water leak in my office, the project is done! (Okay, there’s some organization I still have to do and boxes I have to deal with, but it’s 95% done and that feels darn good.) Let’s go back. So back in July, I discovered a soft spot in my wall and...

    Race Report - Iron Girl Columbia 5K

    On Saturday, I ran the Iron Girl Columbia 5K. I had initially wanted to run the half marathon, but after all the hip and back muscle issues I had at the end of the IG Columbia Tri in August, I wasn’t sure a hilly half was the best plan. I still have one triathlon left for the season, ...

    Hmmmm, “if it’s a girl a package of hair bands” — I to to wearing my hair very long when I was around fifty (cheaper than buying a sports car for a midlife crisis, eh?) and I used elastic bands to hold it in a pony tail. My daughter was in middle school then and her friends all knew t...

    Race Report – Dragonfly Heart Triathlon June 16, 2014 Yesterday I did my first triathlon of the year, a super-sprint. 1/4 mile swim, 12 mile bike, 2.5 mile run. I’m not going to lie, I was nervous. But Kim was with me and we were excited. This race had a kids tri along with it, so we ...

    16 Miles of Beauty

    This part of the run was new to me. I hit a new distance this weekend (16 miles) and took a part of the trail that I hadn’t run before. It was very different from the heavily wooded parts of the trail, but I kind of liked the sparseness of this. I could envision a movie being filmed t...
