The Start of Boston Training: Weeks 1-5

Happy 2019 and the kick off of a new year and training for my second Boston Marathon and second full Ironman. Training has been a bit different this go around and I haven’t written much about it. 1) I’ve just been super busy and 2) I’ve been thinking about how I want to tackle documenting…

Race Calendar & Brands for 2019

For me, 2018 was a great year. Lots of firsts and lots of achievements outside of just finishing times. I made some big strides with some struggles I’ve had around triathlons and I’m pretty happy about that. Overall, it was a successful year and I’m beyond excited for how training is already shaping up (more…

My Word for 2019

I’m sure you all have been making (or already made) your resolution lists. I have been doing the same over these past few weeks, but just like last year,  I’m taking a bit of a different approach.  I want to focus on lifestyle changes that are long term. I don’t want to make changes just…

Happy New Year

I just wanted to take the time to wish you all a great start to 2019. I’ve returned home from a week back home in Pennsylvania and am beyond grateful for my amazing family, friends, coworkers and especially Jonathan who have made this past year such a memorable one. And of course thanks to all…

2018 in Review

Sayonara 2018…Hello 2019! Are you ready?!?! I always think it’s important to look back and reflect on everything that you learned throughout the year. How did you do? What could you have done differently? Did you really give it your all? Were you successful? So how did I do:  …I completed my first Boston Marathon…

De-Stressing and Holiday Workouts

For many this time of year can be extremely stressful, but it doesn’t have to be.

I love this time of year because…

B4LT1M0RE RUN FEST RECAP

Happy Wednesday friends and sorry for the long delay in getting my recap over to you from the Baltimore Running Festival on October 20. It was truly an epic weekend and I’m so excited to tell you about it. Epic, not because I ran it, but because my sister ran it. AND it was her…

Post Ironman Life

Guys, I’ll be honest…the post Ironman blues have hit HARD. The past two weeks have been a bit of a struggle both mentally and physically. I haven’t done a single workout aside from a few of 20-30 minute yoga sessions. I’ve been recovering HARD. I’ve gotten an 90 minute massage, had a chiropractor appointment, taken…

Cheer to 31

Where did the year go? I feel like I was just dreading the fact that I was going to be 30 not too long ago. This year flew by and I will say that 30 was way better than I had anticipated. It has been an incredible year in Florida and there is no better…
