Tuesday Training

  44 miles for the week?! Oof. It was mostly bike though. Monday was my normal swim plus spin at 5:15.. yes. That means I am in the pool by 4:45AM, y’all. That’s kind of insane. Wednesday I biked with Donnie and Shannon. Friday I ran. Saturday, another bike ride that was cut short when […]

The Great Escape Triathlon 2013

Saturday was my first Tri of the season. Philly did a team relay and he was the swimmer of the group. I’ve decided I don’t like competing in things with my husband… he is very much on edge when I am not 15 minutes early and asks for weird “pump up” songs like “Deep River […]

Inadvertent Secrets.

I have been inadvertently keeping a secret. Not to be mean or to be withholding. But simply because, life has just been straight up crazy lately. Here goes… I’ve been training for a triathlon. It’s Saturday. It’s a sprint tri and one I did last year, which was it’s inaugural event. I think it’s a […]

Training Tuesdays

*Let’s take a moment to remember those who lost their lives 11 years ago today. We should all say a special prayer for those families.* Well, I’m not really training for anything at the moment, but since training never really stops… I want to continue my swimming and biking and running, but marathon season is […]

The Great Escape Triathlon

Saturday morning I ventured out for my second triathlon in Hartselle. This was a first annual event and I thought it went quite well! There were less than 150 people that completed this tri… It was a pool swim-200 yard, Bike 8 miles, and a 2 mile run. My realistic finish time was 1:10. My […]

Addy Talks…. Winning.

With Addy doing competition gymnastics, I have always stressed the importance of doing your best and having fun. It’s not always about winning. (We have a problem with competitiveness with our little red head.) Since my half marathons always give medals at the finish line, it was a legitimate question for her to ask if […]

Triathlete Official.

  DISCLAIMER: This post has a LOT of pictures and it’s super long. I did it, y’all. 1:39:29. Now, let’s talk about it. It rained. Early morning showers. I freaked. It made it overcast, which, made the temperature nice, but it was muggy. Bill kept asking for a “Before” picture.  Pin It Me and Mama […]

It’s Tri Time, Y’all!

I geared up last night for my final ride on the bike. I wanted to test out my new super awesome sunglasses. I also had to get my water bottle holder thing (like that terminology?!) attached so I could stay hydrated. Also, my super awesome new riding buddies are taking my bike up to Decatur […]

Training Tuesdays

Wow. It’s been a while since I last blogged. A lot has happened. But more on that at a another time… This week is it. My first Triathlon is Saturday. I feel like I have put my training in, but it doesn’t feel like enough. With running, I know where I stand. I know what […]
