About Me

Here I am with my girls!

Here I am with my girls!

Initially this blog was an outlet to allow me to compose on a variety of topics – all having to do with my learning to embrace change and improvement.

With an emphasis placed on improving my health and fitness, this blog began to change into something I didn’t expect.  I became a TRIATHLETE and a runner and this became more of a brass-tacks training and tri-lifestyle blog.

My first race was a very small local 5K, and it took me approximately 4 months to train to a level where I felt as if I was giving it my best.  My goals were (a) not to walk, (b) not to throw up and (c) not to cry too bad.  Happily I achieved all three and then set my course to bigger and better things.  This led to a 5 miler, a 10 miler, a half marathon, and then triathlons.  

While 2013 has been an injury-plagued year, I did learn quite a bit about myself and what works and what doesn’t work.  I volunteered at Ironman Arizona to see a world-class race close-up, and then registered for 2014.  I plan to fund raise for the American Cancer Society along the way.

This is a journey of self-discovery, and an exercise in choosing the biggest, hairiest audacious goal I can find and then working towards that.
