The Dixon Double proved to be as hard as it's sounds...albeit a wonderful experience that I would not take back for anything. I knew it wasn't going to be easy and I was not surprised with how IN THE WELL I was (especially) the second half of that marathon! GUH! Will continue to

It was an amazing experience going back to Penticton this year. I love the city as it reminds me of Lake Tahoe and wine country all wrapped up into one. A happy place to be. Having the Kesslers, Sterlings and AK there, as ever, was priceless. There is nothing better than seeing people

FAST LANE: Moving at the Speed of Life

August 26th, 2011|

  We all live in the FAST LANE. Moving at the speed of LIFE..... No matter WHAT profession we are, motherhood, lawyers, doctors, barista's, professional athlete's, coaching, sales, retail (and the list goes ON and ON obviously)...simply put, LIFE gets busy for everyone no matter how you spin it. When I entered

It was an absolute pleasure to have been able to race my first REV 3 race in Portland!  The Rev 3 staff are fantastic, first class people who make each athlete feel like a million bucks. Their race execution was top notch and their ability to make everyone feel so welcome and important is

Gumption: Another attempt at #40

June 25th, 2011|

It's not often times that we get another chance at something. So, when we do...I consider this a real luxury. The whole beauty of Ironman racing is that ...THERE is always another one, (whenever that may be) to look forward to... a pretty cool thing. On May 7th at Ironman St George, I

RESILIENCE: RE-Finding The Strong

May 11th, 2011|

First things first, I want to personally congratulate Heather Wurtele on an amazing Ironman St. George win to make her a 3 X Ironman Champion. Heather tackled that heat, that course and those conditions with grace, confidence and whit; she could not be more worthy of the victory. Special congratulations also goes to

Happy May! It's been summer like-ish here in San Francisco which is IDEAL before our cool summer hits! Galveston 70.3 was a fun way to open up the engine and start the season. The amazing field of pro women was impeccable and it was a delight to be in mix. We had a great

Happy April! Per usual, I'll let the pictures do the talking in terms of somewhat catching up since Ironman AZ! (A little behind in my blogging efforts here!) I'm really excited to be a quarter into 2011 and I will be dancing under this “BEING IN THE MOMENT” umbrella. I am INSPIRED by

Fuel to the Finish…..

November 20th, 2010|

Have you ever wondered what really fuels you?  As a person or as an athlete...something fuels you to keep on keeping on and get to the finish no matter what the actual "finish" is.  For me, it's quite simple but broad:  Family & Friends.  There isn't anything more important to me.  Since Kona,

In the past, you’ve heard me talk about a phrase that I embrace not only in triathlon, but in LIFE.  It’s so so crucial.  That motto is KEEP CALM, CARRY ON (aka KCCO).  Everyone in the world needs to KCCO every single day in every capacity …for me, it’s the way of the
