Do you still Dream?

One of my foundational messages is the importance of goal setting. I stand for the power of taking your wants and making them possible. I sincerely believe in the amazing worth and capabilities of humans. And I am inspired by those who take on the craziest, awe...

Life is Funny

If you don’t know me beyond this blog you might think I am quite serious. Contemplative. It is true that as I have grown older I have cultivated this side of myself more. I enjoy deeper conversations and more meaningful connections.  But, the real me LOVES to...

Are You Perfect?

I am guessing that the title of this blog has you very intrigued. Total perfectionism is objective. But, we know that that nothing is perfect. So, since true perfection is unattainable it is entirely subjective— based on or influenced by personal feelings, tastes, or...

Grateful I Competed

As some of you know by now, I had a successful day competing at the Ironman Arizona 70.3. It was many flavors of hard, as it always is. But I came away with a 5th age in my group podium spot and a World Championship qualification for next year. Mission...

Why?

I am taking on the Ironman Arizona 70.3 this Sunday in Tempe.  Why this race? After some of the wounds and scars healed post my Texas 70.3 experience I realized I had to come back to the “why” for this upcoming race in AZ. I decided to not make it out of a place...

Why Don’t More Women Tri?

I have been aware of the lack of diversity in triathlon for years. You would have to be racing and spectating with blinders on to miss the shortage of representation of women (and people of color, but that is not the topic of this particular blog). And although I have...

After the Goal

And in a blink of an eye (or after many, many hours), Ironman Wisconsin 2021 is over.  It was a great day for a long distance triathlon. Overcast and cool enough without being cold. Some athletes finished in the daylight hours and were probably able to get a fair...

Why Ironman?

Sunday is the locally long awaited return of the Ironman Wisconsin triathlon after a pandemic forced hiatus in 2020.  A quick recap for readers who aren’t sure of what exactly the Ironman is… it is a race that covers 2.4 miles of swimming, 112 miles of road...
