Mental Strength Training

Hello from California! Husbandface and I raced yesterday and I will have a full race report most likely next week about that. I’m going to a jet lagged mess the second half of this week, so nothing coherent is going to make it’s way out of my mouth or onto Read more →

Race Report – Empire State Half Marathon

Empire State Half Marathon, oh yet again, you have foiled me. I knew I’d be slower this year thanks to my nagging calf tear injury that has caused me to go into this race entirely and painfully under trained. (You can find my race report from last year’s race here) Read more →

Friday Five – Fitness Tunes

Tri Talk Tuesday – Skills for Life and Running

Oh Tuesday, back again. Sneaking up on me again. Where do these weeks keep going? Cynthia and I are linked up for another round of tri banter and chatter! Except, today I may not be totally on topic; triathlon that is. My life has felt beyond chaotic lately and with Read more →

Will Run For Pumpkin Spice

My posting is still somewhat erratic right now. Hopefully I can start to settle down this week or next. I have so much school work to do and still have more PT in the evenings. Woosh, I’ll be happy when that’s over. PT has been helping though. I’d say my Read more →
