Counting Blessings

As I was driving home from the winter biking interval session I coach, I felt so happy. It was at this moment that I realized that I had done it. Somehow I have managed to fit everything that I love and am passionate about into my life. Sure, there are times when some of my passions take a bit of a back seat to other ones that I am focusing on, but they are still present. Somehow I managed to have several jobs that combine into my one perfect job. When I was a young university student there was no … Keep reading

Time Flies

I can’t believe it has been a month since I have updated this. In my head, while I’m training, I keep thinking, “*Subject* would be a great thing to write about,” but then it leaves my head as soon as my workout is done.

I am hoping to get in 3 swim workouts this week, 3 runs and at least one bike workout (2 would be nice). Yesterday I went for a 35-minute x-country ski, … Keep reading

I just felt like running

Tuesday I was out of town for work, so I knew that I had to get a workout in before we left at 7:30am. I woke up at 6:09 and was out the door by 6:15. It wasn’t the best for my performance, but I just wanted to get it in. I got in a good 30 minute workout. It felt great to be out in the fresh air and I’m glad I did because the weather has taken a turn to being really wet. Wet rain and snow has been coming down since last night. I didn’t get home … Keep reading
