“What do you need?”
I asked it hundreds of times on Sunday as the finishers came, either in waves or in trickles, across the finish line at the Eagleman 70.3 on Maryland’s beautiful eastern shore.
I had raced it the year before and have ridden the bike course several times in cycling events so I knew full well how…Continue
YOU…are an Ironman. Chills still run through my body hearing those words in my mind and thinking back to that day and final moment. Life changing words….really, they are. Swim 2.4 miles. Bike 112 miles and run a marathon 26.2 miles. It’s much more than the world’s most challenging endurance race. If there’s one…Continue

Ironman II: Rise of the Civil Servant
I returned to the beautiful Gulf shores in Panama City Beach, Fla., last month to face down the Demons of Puke that forced me to a far-too-early DNF in 2012. As usual, arriving at the athlete’s village evoked the familiar feelings of doubt and insecurity I feel whenever I’m around triathletes of the Ironman caliber: I’m too old.…Continue

- Let others know where and when you'll be running.
- Wear reflective gear. Drivers are…Continue

Given the goal to be first into the water, my husband and youngest daughter dropped me off at the swim entrance (Tumbleweeds) at 4:39 am. I sat in line (yes there was already a line) until the race started. Some of the people near me also attended the IAMTRI…Continue

I trained hard. I tapered easy. Want more? Friend me in Garmin Connect
Packing went smoothly. I didn’t forget anything! Traveling up to Syracuse was fun. Marc and I looked for other triathletes driving up, and saw a few. We ate lunch at Quiznos and then headed right for Jamesville Beach Park, where all the activity was…Continue

It's been a while since I have been on here. Years actually. But after yesterday's horrible events at the Boston Marathon, I had to share an amazing blog post that I had read written from one of my girl friends from high school.
“I run because it’s symbolic of life. You have to drive yourself to overcome the obstacles. You might feel that you can’t. But then you realize you’re capable of so much more than you thought.” -Arthur Blank
Just a suggestion to give a few moments of thought to all of those touched by the cowardly bombing yesterday at the Boston marathon.
It's sad times like his that remind us here at mytri,I run to stop MS and Karma to be a little extra grateful for, and determined to utilize the freedom that we have to pursue our positive passions.
Best thoughts and support go out to not only those who experienced the horror at the Boston marathon, but also our entire endurance…Continue
