TWO NAILS: PLEASURE AND PAIN For the past year since our studio moved locations, I have been meticulously staring at these two nails at eye level in front of me at Velo SF while on the trainer. Since we do about 90% of my cycling training in there, it ends up being a

The Vampire Den: Crashes that Bite

Last update I wrote I was ‘high-fiving angels’ coming off a fun and rewarding Vineman weekend….thrilled to report that while it may be for different reasons, I’m still slapping fives with those angels as I feel lucky to be alive and able to race again. A couple weeks after Vineman, we were in

High Fiving Angels at Vineman 70.3

My great pal Kate always makes me truly laughing out loud when she says she was “HIGH-FIVING ANGELS” when something great happens…its always been a saying that I love to hear.

Eagles, Snakes + Crab Cakes at Eagleman!

We had a blast in Cambridge, Maryland at the fantastic Eagleman 70.3 race! I pretty much ate my way through Dorchester county like a hungry hungry hippo especially in the crab cake department as there surely is nothing better than a Maryland Crab Cake—tasty all around. Jerry Nista, Vigo + team managed and

As ever, the detailed pictures and videos posted here seem to be the window to the fantastic month of May that we had and as I organize them for this blog, I can’t even find enough words to express my gratitude for it all.

Getting Comfortable Being Uncomfortable

People may read the title to this blog and instantly think, 'why on earth would I ever want to get comfortable being UNCOMFORTABLE?!” This seems like pure insanity. After all, who wants to be in any discomfort! I totally understand this initial thought process! With that said... Within purplepatch, we dive into the

Dreaming in Color: IMNZ 70.3

I have always had the mindset that DREAMING IN COLOR was the best way to approach all realms of LIFE. I feel as if this thought process sets one up for success vs. the potential for any disappointment. A basic example of this can even come into play when talking about a simple
