Looking back at 2014

Looking back at 2014

At the end of 2013, I summed it up as – A bit of everything (running, yoga, crossfit, triathlon), a bit of focus lost and regained (running goals defined), a new love gained (triathlon and crossfit) and an old love reclaimed (running!). And so finishing up 2013 and going into 2014, I  had just one race in April that I was training for. I was trying to juggle that with CrossFit.  Here’s me looking back at 2014 and a (not so short) recap of my…

Training for Dopey Challenge – Weekend 1

Training for Dopey Challenge – Weekend 1

This was my first weekend of LONG training for Dopey Challenge! And nothing prepares you mentally for a LONG long run like the weather channel forecasting 100% rain during the exact 5 hours you expect to be out. I wasn’t looking forward to running that long in the rain, I didn’t want to either. But the alternative of changing my run days wasn’t an option either. I sort of knew what the answer would be and I didn’t want to sound…

That is until a local yoga studio started a series called iAthlete – a Yoga class geared towards triathletes and…

Running Bloggers of Atlanta Dinner

Running Bloggers of Atlanta Dinner

This past Monday, Elizabeth from RunningForBling hosted a holiday dinner for some running bloggers. (She had one last year, but I was in Disney at that time!). Although I had interacted with Elizabeth on Twitter & Instagram, this was my first time meeting her in real life (if you exclude the fleeting 12 second ‘hello’ just two days before while running.) We had a little White Elephant gift exchange. There were some awesome packages that people put together including a…

Meeting Bill Rodgers at Jeff Galloway 13.1 Expo

Meeting Bill Rodgers at Jeff Galloway 13.1 Expo

I met Bill Rodgers 5 years ago in October at his running store while on vacation in Boston. I was hanging around Faneuil Hill Marketplace with my then 3yo and 10month old when I saw the running store. Mr. FauxTriathlete had his first half marathon coming up shortly and I wanted to get him a gift or motivational something.  I met this nice guy at the store and started talking to him. Soon he asked me if I was running the…
