Tomorrow, I take on the Chattanooga Waterfront Triathlon. It will be my 

  1. First Olympic distance triathlon
  2. First River swim
  3. First out of town/overnight stay triathlon

One of my worst weakness is how much chatter I put in my mind leading up to a race, especially one that I’m nervous about (with 3 firsts in a race, I can be permitted to be just a tad nervous, I think). My personal focus for every race this year (after Dopey) is to stay calm and go to battle with my head high and heart even. 

It is the same for this Olympic distance. Get everything prepared, workout the logistics and stay calm.  chattanooga olympic triathlon 

Packing done and on the road to packet pickup. It’s going to be a big weekend.

June 22, 2015

I call this past week my roller-coaster week. Up and down and down and up! Physically and emotionally. There was no saying when I’d be on my up and then I’d be on the down. And I was totally bewildered by my apparent inability to control my emotions. I am a 1 or 0 kind of […]

Training and Stress

June 20, 2015

This post about my training and stress affecting it is one of the most unorganized  posts I’ve written. It bugs me because it doesn’t flow the way I wanted to in my mind. Perhaps this is two posts mashed into one. Either way, it was written from the heart without an editor’s hand and I don’t want to […]

Things to do in Sedona – Vacation Part 2

June 12, 2015

After a good four days in Phoenix, we drove to Sedona. Sedona has to be one of the most beautiful places with some of the BEST food I’ve ever had. There were so many things to do and see in Sedona and we did not do it justice by just staying two nights. Sharing the […]

Newton’s Third Law: Kindness Begets Kindness

June 9, 2015

I’ve been wondering if I should write this post. It doesn’t have anything to do with the running or triathlon or fitness world other than originating from it. On the other hand, it is a basic common life lesson that NEEDS to be spoken of.  A couple of months ago, there was a difference of […]

June 8, 2015

All through these past months, I’ve been plugging away at the training plan, focusing on getting the workouts in and trying to learn from each workout. And at the end of almost every single week, I’ve carried over my nervousness over tackling something huge like a 70.3 Half Ironman. How is someone who does not […]
