  All of the sudden Spring is well under way and it feels like Summer is creeping in.  With IMTX on the horizon, it seems like there has been little time for blogging.  After Galveston, it was back to work for a few short weeks…but there was lots of play involved as well.  All three …

Somehow these past few months have escaped me.  We went from the crazy holiday season, winter swimming and to all things winter. November and December were extremely mild…so much so I was able to ride my bike outside every month.  I think I was out the day after Christmas.  We did not get enough snow …

The holidays are fast approaching and everyone is starting to get a little eager for the snow to hit.  Off season seemed to have ended long ago and I am working on strengthening my weaknesses.  As we headed north for the holidays, we were welcomed with some of the best holiday weather in a LONG …

My break from training was short this year and we are back into training mode.  This is the first year I have done a really regimented off season.  In years past, I would take a break for a couple of months and swim, bike, run on my own as I felt.  I LOVED it…I did …

This weekend we headed to Austin with the kids.  Ryan had a conference here and we have never been to Texas. We thought, incorrectly, of course that the kids would have Columbus day off so they would only miss two days of school.   We have heard that Austin is a GREAT place, without kids, …

Last weekend I raced my final triathlon this season at Redman in Oklahoma.  While this was undoubtedly, my most successful year in this sport, I came home from that trip totally spent.  Everything hurt, including my brain from thinking so much.  A sign of a good effort for sure.
