Duathlon Nationals? Serious or not!?

As I reflect over this long holiday weekend I am panicking at the thought of the Duathlon Nationals in October.  I have several lofty goals this year expanding into 2014 but the past 4 months have not contributed to my physical and mental conditioning for the challenges I face.  Let me rephrase that; the past […]

So if you have read any of the blog thus far you know a little bit about me… I can not be told what to do and I push myself about as far as I can be pushed!

But how did I get here and why? Well, that is what this page is about.

I was never really the athletic type. Sure, I played tennis in high school (and quite well, mind you) but running CERTAINLY was never my thing!

The start of 2009 was big for me as I came to the realization that I had put on too much weight over the past 10 years (read more...)
