Read some pretty crazy stuff at RunTri. Holy shit, Boise is the 2nd hardest HIM in America and the 6th hardest HIM in the world!!!! Cause you know, if you can’t be the baddest badass in the world, what’s the point? And aparently, it’s mostly the bike ride. I need to shift more focus on this. Bike hard, hit my miles, hit the hills, don’t … Continue reading If you can’t be the baddest badass in the world, what’s the point?

Saturday morning, the girls, my mom, Amber and I ran the Seaport River Run. Amber and I ran the 10k and my mom and my girls ran the 5k. It was a great run.

But when it’s sudden, tragic, and a friend rather than a patient, it’s more difficult to absorb. It makes me question my own life, the way I live, the way I love. Because people can’t come back. You can’t do … Continue reading Love More, Life is so Short

Well, as expected and warned… I’m planning to do a full IM. No, not this year. After looking at many training plans, goals I have for myself this year and other factors, next year will be the year. And to cut on costs, travel, and other outside factors, I’ll be training for the CDA IM next June. This year, the focus will remain on Boise … Continue reading Updated Goals…
I’ve spent a fair amount of time deciding how I would post about this race… The pros: Flat course and cool out, long sleeve shirt, fun with friends, great cause. The cons: Poorly organized, no physical address on emails and Facebook (nearly causing us to miss the race), and extremely rude staff replying to suggestions/concerns (well I should say, singular staff member), no time chipping … Continue reading Hope Glow Run 5k
