"When I first started reading this I thought WTF??? She gets drunk a couple of nights before a big race and then rides the entire course the day b4???? Luckily I quickly realized you were spectating and just checking the course out.....the pics are…"
"Great race report Sue. I was spotting the Pro women up Yellow Lake. The wind and rain looked awful. I couldn't imagine descending down it. I'm so sorry to hear about your asthma. I completely feel you pain :(
You should be VERY proud of…"
The day before -Eh, Saturday morning I woke up feeling like I got rocked by a hurricane. I am not good on a little sleep depravation, 4-5hrs is just not enough. A little dose of HTFU and I got my tail down to the lake side for a wake/sober the hell up open water swim. Equipped with my trusty Helix I attacked the water. Ahahahahaha! That was an exaggeration at best. I was lucky I didn't drown as I was still hung-over/semi-drunkly swimming. The water started out feeling pretty good. Cleansing I…See More
Typo /grammar declaimer - this was written after a very long day and I'm sooooo tired I can't really think straight.********************************My crazy but highly respectable boss is riding another 600k this up coming weekend. She got a new light that will be generated off her front hub and needed to test it out before the big ride day. Of course the only way to test out this light was a 3am bike ride up and OVER the west hills to Voodoo Doughnuts and back. I opted to join her for one of…See More
As of lately my tail end and I have not been getting along. One legged plate weight stability squats and weighted lunges are tearing my a** muscles a new one. Just tryin' to build more (eh....ok maybe just some) junk in the trunk. Buns of steel baby.I am running again! 3-4 days a week, couple miles each day. I am running enough to sweat! Best of all I am running pain free! I'm as giddy as a school girl....and might just resemble one as I run by in my knee high compression socks and run…See More
A slightly burnt cookie still taste good with a glass of milk. A microwave will fix a stale cookie in a flash. No one ever complains about the undercooked cookie. A little sweetness goes a long way. It's the diamond in the rough that cuts the sharpest. Do you know your own strength?The statue is getting glued back together. One day it will stand tall beaming with health and happiness. This time around I went with the spendy stuff - the extra strength super glue. Will it hold up? Only time will…See More
Mary Jane, Holly and MoiSkirt Chaser 5k-Goal "run easy"Mission accomplished but much more difficult then one might think.For instance it is REALLY hard to let a shit load of people pass by as Ijogged happily along. The competitive side of holding back I think was the worst part. I really wanted to GO. My legs felt great! Thankfully I had my pride crushed long ago, so it wasn't that bad. There I ran....nice, easy and slow. My Garmin hasn't been able to pick up my HR for sometime now so I had to…See More
Or so the saying goes.I am impatient. I admit it.I eat my soup when I know it is too damn hot and will scorch my tongue.I am honest...IMO too honest. I need to learn when to bite my tongue. Yes, the same tongue I scorched on the soup. I eat my "fruit at the bottom" yogurt without mixing it thoroughly. Resulting in half tang half frutosis. Yes I made the word "frutosis" up. Bittersweet some might say.A moment happens and I think "seize the moment". What I should do is take that moment to think…See More
I've been a little disappointed in my lack of desire to write. I was pretty certain I had lost all creativity. My desire that lit the eternal flame had finally been put out. BUT then came intensity! I am healthy enough that my coach is adding back in Z3/Z4/Z5 intervals on the bike and swim. Several times last week and this week I felt my creative spark. My desire to write was ignited by burning muscular pain along my racing heat beat. Trigger points are somethin' else, eh?Anywho...I hope to be…See More

I saw your IM Canada picture. What year were your there? And what do you think about the race?
I did IM Canada in 2008 and I think it's a great race! Absolutely loved the place, the course, the people and everything around it. Can't wait to go back there.
Katie, thanks for the comment on my blog about my 20th marathon. I can honestly say that I have had a unique experience in all 20, but the common thread in all of them is the camaraderie and respect amongst the athletes, regardless of each person's abilities.
