I hope everyone had a great labor day weekend! Vacation was great. We had beautiful, sunny, beach weather, the kids had a blast looking for shells and going in the ocean (when the lifeguards said it wasn’t too rough) and it was relaxing. I was truly unplugged, not tied to my laptop and it was […]

I have been blogging for about 10 months now and for some reason it hasn’t occurred to me until recently that I have never posted any “before” and “after” photos of myself. So here they are… This first pix is probably me at close to my heaviest. Notice the big sweater which I thought hid […]

So here is the last part and wrap-up of the completion of my first triathlon. In case you missed it, you can read about the swim HERE and the bike HERE. The run ended up to be my strongest portion of the triathlon. After slogging through the bay and biking hard for 12.5 miles, I […]

Continuing from yesterday’s post about the swim here… The chip timing piece that all participants wear around their ankles are pretty amazing. Not only does it give you a readout (later when you look on the tri’s website) of how long it took to do each portion of the race, it tells you what place […]

Thanks everyone for their input on my silly coffee dilemma! It was just one of those moments that as I was writing the post in all my crazy nervous frenzy, I just couldn’t figure out what to do. (And yes, I did end up bringing/making the same instant coffee I drink at home. I was […]

Holy crap! How did all this time fly by and it’s really almost the big day!?!?! I have followed my 12-week training plan to the letter except for one itty bitty thing – the plan recommended always doing some drills at the beginning of each swim. Being an utter novice stupid and ignorant, and not […]

I can’t believe it as I’m writing this, but the triathlon is two weeks from this past Sunday! On Sunday, our family was invited to go out on a friend’s boat which gave me a wonderful opportunity to do a practice swim in the open water, a lake. Once again, a whole other animal than […]

Just checking in so you know I’m still around and kicking. The triathlon is in just under four weeks now. I am sitting on the edge of my seat reading about Rita of The Giggly Bits as she is writing about her first triathlon experience. I’m still finding the swim harder than the running and […]

I Did my First Duathlon!

First the good news – I finished! The bad news – the swim was really hard. Like, this-close-to-giving-up hard. Let me walk you through… I was totally nervous throughout the day. Major butterflies in my stomach. It was 100 degrees out so I made sure to do my best to eat and drink appropriately for […]
