The Courage is Already Inside


Tomorrow will be my first triathlon of the season.  Ironically, as I was nervously preparing for my race, this commercial came on… Whatever tomorrow brings, I know I’m going into it prepared.  Months of hard work: endless hours in the pool, countless 5:00 AM wake-ups to get on the trainer, and running in temperatures that […]

New Year and a Race Recap


“Change gears as we change years.” -from my “Believe I Am” journal Like most people, I see the new year as an opportunity to start fresh with everything.  Even though my training season is already in full swing for the year, I still like to take a minute to check-in with myself and reflect.  What […]

Race Recap: Selfless Elf 5k


I like when I can combine my love for running with my love to help others.  This is exactly why I chose to run the Selfless Elf 5k this past weekend.  All proceeds from this event go to the Back Pack Program.  Being that I work in the local schools, I am fortunate to be […]

Race Recap: Daytona Speedway 5k


Training, my job, life, travel, you name it…has been keeping me busy. However, as I write, I’m currently basking in some recovery time in my training.  It also happens to be February break, which means I’m off from work for the week.  This makes for a perfect time to recap my race from almost a […]

Race Recap: Pie and Glove 5k


Happy Thanksgiving! This morning I kept with my Thanksgiving tradition and ran the local Pie & Glove 5k. Along with the race being a tradition, it was also my goal race.  Who makes the Thanksgiving Day 5k a goal race?! My reasoning goes back to late summer when my friend Ericka and I were planning […]

Race Recap: Finger Lakes Triathlon


When I started triathlon training in May, I had no idea where it would take me.  Four months later, I’ve just completed my third triathlon of the season (fourth if you include the Borg Warner Mini Triathlon). After Cayuga and Broome County, I didn’t feel my triathlon season was complete yet.  I had at least one […]

Race Recap: Time to Sperr


The Time to Sperr race is one of my all time favorites.  Its local, there are a variety of distance options (3k, 5k, 10k), the course is relatively flat/fast, and most importantly its in honor of a true hero, NYS Trooper, Andrew J. Sperr.  Proceeds from the race go towards maintaining and improving the park […]

Race Recap: Broome County Triathlon


 The Broome County Triathlon was originally scheduled for June of this year.  Unfortunately the week of the race, there were heavy rains and it was postponed due to flooding.  If this triathlon had taken place when it was supposed to, I would not have done it because I just wasn’t as fit as I wanted […]

Race Recap: The Cayuga Lake Triathlon


This past weekend I competed in the 11th annual Cayuga Lake Triathlon in Ithaca, New York. On race day, my alarm went off at 4:00 AM.  I showered, braided my hair (which, by the way, I believe is the easiest style for triathlons), got dressed in my racing gear, added more layers of clothes due […]

Tanglefoot Trail Run


A while ago my husband, mentioned he was interested in running a local trail race, the Tanglefoot Trail Run. While discussing his race plan, I was still in the walking boot.  I used that as my excuse as to why I couldn’t possibly run Tanglefoot with him.  Although, in reality, all I could think about […]
