Little super sis Kelsey and Davo got engaged!  YESSSSSS BFF Jen and BPC got engaged!  LOVE IT.  BFF Al-Ster is getting inducted into our HS Athletic Hall of Fame this Friday.  I'm

      Our time in Canada was beyond fantastic.  Pentiction is truly like a combo between Lake Tahoe and Napa Valley Wine Country thus bringing together two of our favorite (and most beautiful) places near San Francisco.  I felt like I was right at home ..and the cooler weather race week sure did

The theme the past few weeks has been: VIBRANCY.  Keeping all realms of life just that...VIBRANT!   This is the way I enjoy life the most.  It's an MD thing too that he implements on all of us purplepatch peeps = the way to go.   I will let the pictures do most of the talking but its been another great few

From Vegas to Vineman…

July 24th, 2010|

The high from CDA continued the following weekend when my family went to Las Vegas to celebrate Dado’s 60th birthday!  It was a blast.  People always wonder why Vegas is one of my FAVORITE places to go and I remind them that these casinos have oxygen PUMPING thru them and thus I always

The city of Coeur D’Alene is a special place where (we are so fortunate that) success and great karma seems to prevail for Purplepatch athletes. Last year, Tyler Stewart broke the course record and took home the crown and her first Ironman title. I was lucky enough to witness this victory and also

Summer Lovin’…May Flew By!

June 14th, 2010|

I blinked and May was over! Life is cruising by at a fun pace post St. George. Family, friends, work, training and life is all flowing. I am always so thankful for that luxury. I enjoyed some recovery post St. George with lots of relaxing swimming/indoor cycling but limited running to be sure

The Kesslers had a blast in St. George, Utah for the inaugural Ironman event. It was great to spend the weekend with Claire, Wendell (Pete and Patti too!) and ofcourse, super husband Aaron (AK). AK and I arrived in St. George via Vegas late on Thursday evening and I was able to register

From CBUS to NOLA and on to ST. GEORGE!

April 27th, 2010|

Visits to Columbus, Ohio (aka CBUS!) and New Orleans were a blast. Quality family time in my hometown, baby showers, best friends from youth, baby births, travel with family to New Orleans and ending the weekend with racing New Orleans 70.3.  Life is good. New Orleans 70.3 was my 2nd pro race and I was delighted

Race season is quickly approaching and some of us purplepatchers are headed to race New Orleans 70.3… Missy Corbin and I (pic1) are excited to hit up the Big Easy soon to start the season off right, NOLA style! Super husband sherpa extraordinaire, AK (pic2), won't be able to attend this season opener (he is
