Now What? Three Weeks After Kona…

Hard to believe it’s already been almost three weeks since Kona – still reflecting… Time flies. Downtime is always in order immediately following any big evert, in order to let the body rest, recover and rejuvenate. But how about the mind? One of the main reasons I ever got into Ironman in the first place […]

Fresh Catch… From Fiji?

I had to laugh. It wasn’t funny, but I was still honestly laughing. I stopped into the grocery store for some bits (I typically end up doing a second trip in addition to my big shop or trip to the farmer’s market each week), such as a little bit more lettuce (depending on what my […]

Gather (at the Farmer’s Market), Discover…Cook!

As I write this post, I’m getting ready to do one of my absolute favorite things:  cook. Something I do every day, whether I’m cooking for myself and my dogs while Chris is out of town for work, or hosting a gigantic holiday party…it’s always the same. No matter what sort of day I’ve had, […]

Reflecting on the Race…

The day after any race is always an emotional one for me, and the day after Kona tends to be that ,and then some, taking those feelings to the nth degree, given its significance and magnitude. This is precisely why I opted not to write a post yesterday, to reflect on the race (as well […]

Racing with Gratitude

The day before a race is always a special one, and in particular, the day before this race. From the moment I land on this beautiful island, I always feel as though I’m part of something bigger.   Whether that’s due to the welcoming energy of the Hawaiian culture or the raw, savage feel this […]

We’re barely eating real food  (about half the meals the typical American family eats are not prepared at home (1) and 74% of that packaged food or those take-out meals contains sugars (2)- both obvious and hidden. But somehow […]

here. we. go, kona!

8 minutes until we board our flight to Kona and I’m happy, focused a little jittery but most of all, excited to see what the day brings. It’s been three years since the last time I had the opportunity to race on triathlon’s sacred grounds and the time away has allowed personal growth, revisiting the […]

My Favorite Recovery Drink: Bone Broth!

It’s not what I drank for years and years. Yes, the 4:1 Carb:Pro ratio I relied upon for such a long time, even in a real-food version (think coconut water, banana, egg), may have been cleaner and more cost effective than many of the commercially prepared recovery drinks, but the one I love most now […]

Musings on Stretching, Icing, Saunas…and Meditation!

I’ve written before about how it was only this past year that I began incorporating meditation into my daily routine. Well, there was something else I was very remiss until very recently, and I’m embarrassed to admit it, given the career path I’ve chosen. I wasn’t stretching. Hardly ever. I was barely foam rolling and […]
