Tidbit Tuesday – Big News!

news

Big news today. I have decided to hire a coach! I have kicked this idea around for over a year, but after a lot of thought, I finally decided that it was the best thing for me, for my training and for my goals this year.

Bryan Kreitz is a coach with TriDot. TriDot in itself is a super neat company, and I would urge anyone to check it out. I personally wanted to have that ‘extra push’ and someone that I could reach out to for questions, advice and a good ol’ kick in the ass when needed. I HIGHLY recommend reaching out to Bryan if you are interested, seriously.

I have some lofty goals for 2017 and I won’t settle for anything less than not only achieving them but absolutely destroying them. In the very short time that I have been working with Bryan, I feel absolutely confident that will happen!

Monday Motivation

Yesterday, while at the pool, a lady that I knowing only in passing, came up and spoke to me about my blog and about the way that my race season ended last year.Β Her kind words and her genuine thoughtfulness meant a lot to me.Β It seems like there is just so much negativity out there right now and so much disconnections between people, that her kindness went a long ways in my mind. πŸ™‚ Stay Kind Folks!

I am changing things up a bit this training season… More to come later this week! But let me tell you, IT IS F-ING AWESOME.

Freeze Your Fanny 5k

First race of 2017! A 5k put on by the local college. And three of my kiddos ran AND PLACED! It was a great start to a great race season! πŸ™‚

It was so cold though! It took me several hours to warm up! Froze My Fanny for sure! πŸ™‚ I am just loving my new Asics Gel – Noosa Tri’s! And of course, I hydrated with Nuun Energy (cherry limeade is my fav) and ate a Honey Stinger Waffle prior to racing! And carried all my sweet gear in my Ogio bag! Always proud to represent TriMafia! πŸ™‚
