Renovating My Normal

I’m writing this from what feels like a state of pure exhaustion. If it makes no sense, that’s definitely why. My first week back to full time work was tough. It’s always an adjustment. Throw in being super duper pregnant and by Thursday I thought I was dying. I was Read more →

Race Report – Musselman Mini Mussel Triathlon

Second year in a row of running the Mini Mussel and I am happy to report I ripped a huge chunk of time off of last year’s race. Very exciting. That being said, I definitely think I could have shaved a few more minutes off my time. My head has Read more →
