Always Go

You’ve done it too. When your alarm innocently does its job to nudge you up and into your life you at 4:45am (ungodly hour but you have goals and a body that needs to move) you immediately consider sleep over cycling (or yoga, or swimming, or running). And therein lies the unfailingly present daily question:Continue reading “Always Go”

2018 is All Jacked Up – Already

I mean, CRAP! In like a lion, 2018.  Is it too early to ask for the lamb? I am all jacked up for this year because it is the one wherein I turn fifty, (shhh!).  Saying ‘yes’ as much as I can is.  Pondering ‘how’ not ‘if’ cool things can be done.  Not just dreamingContinue reading “2018 is All Jacked Up – Already”

Watch Party

A fan of Ice Cube, Tiger Woods, the James Madison University Dukes, Running, Ironman and all things Yoga, it was a good day. Running It wasn’t good just because I ran 7+ miles with my Iron-mommas and tri-babies plus one Navy Seal in the making. A display to admire, this guy upped his fitness gameContinue reading “Watch Party”

Gum doesn’t work.

With Ironman Chattanooga almost two weeks in my rear view, I hasten to document the experience of taking my body over 144.6 miles by water, by wheels, by feet. I am starting with thank you: God.  For blessing me with a healthy, mobile body and a heart for endurance. For the beautiful planet we inhabitContinue reading “Gum doesn’t work.”

I came in last. Truth.

I have never been fast and I am okay with that. My best marathon time is 4:20. In 2014 I added in swimming and biking and became an age-grouper triathlete with realistic expectations. I can hang on the slow side of the middle of the pack on a good day. I do it for this:Continue reading “I came in last. Truth.”

I got called out at yoga…

It wasn’t for anything good.  As a yoga teacher, I know it is disingenuous to rate the poses or practice as good, bad, or great. However I do not mind being told my down dog is the bomb or my camel, dancer, or pigeon pose is on point. The middle little girl in me still likesContinue reading “I got called out at yoga…”

76 Million Reasons Not To Die

At almost 80 years old, San Francisco’s Golden Gate Bridge is one of the wonders of the world, and one of the most photographed things on the planet. By 2020 it will be impossible to die by jumping off of it. According to a Golden Gate District press release, a  stainless steel net, will be installedContinue reading “76 Million Reasons Not To Die”

Why You Should Always Take the Train

On Sunday, my husband and I took my oldest to college. It hit me like a freight train. I knew it was coming but didn’t anticipate the impact. Sure I: Deal with the ache of missing him daily around the house. (knew it) Wish I could have stayed longer when we dropped him off. (normal, kinda)Continue reading “Why You Should Always Take the Train”

One Thing I Am Obsessed With and Why You Should Be Too

I have a bevy of beautiful girlfriends; smart, adventurous, fun, accomplished, driven queens of their kingdom who inspire me everyday. Of particular note, is my friend Jen who could and probably has been mistaken for Kelly Lynch or Michelle Pfieffer. I was super excited when KellyMichelleJen came to a few of my yoga classes earlier this summer. Jen gaveContinue reading “One Thing I Am Obsessed With and Why You Should Be Too”

3 Recovery Revelations

With Challenge Roth 140.6 in my rearview mirror, I want the euphoric after-feeling to last forever.   Alas, deadlines, family responsibilities and bills are taking up the vista on the view out the front. But that’s may fault. It’s up to me to recall and imprint the lessons and successes and pure love of the day andContinue reading “3 Recovery Revelations”
