A Reminder

Like many of you (especially if you live in Wisconsin), my summers are filled with plans. And it is also my busiest time of work— with endurance sport race season in full swing. After two very busy life/work weeks and a short getaway to Las Vegas, I came to the...

A Need for Sleep

I had quite a busy week. In addition to my normal parenting, home, training, and work responsibilities, I took care of my three nieces and nephew— ages three through nine years. They are wonderful kids and we truly had an absolute blast. It was definitely worth...

Setting the Record Straight

I write this blog to inspire you. To provide a place for you to be open and honest with yourself. To give you new ways to think about old habits. To encourage you to live your most authentic life.  BUT— I also want to set the record straight. This is NOT a blog...

Just Let Go of Control

A couple days ago I read something in a Triathlete online article that made me feel very seen and understood in my sport of choice. The editor was listing the routines that the magazine and its people have established in Kona, Hawaii surrounding the October annual...

A Sleep Deprived Race Report

I did it. I am a 4X full Ironman finisher. And I conquered one of the toughest courses on the circuit.  Why did I chose this race? As you all know, I live to inspire others to come out of your comfort zones to promote personal growth and evolution— to feel fully...

My Gratitude Grid

Well, holy f*@k. It is Ironman St. George race week!  I am excited. I am really nervous. And I grateful for it all.  The journey has given me everything I wanted and needed. It has been challenging. My body never ceases to amaze me and feels very strong and...
