I’ll be honest. I used to rag on the idea of having a triathlon coach. I didn’t understand why “regular” athletes like myself hired someone to tell them what to do. I remember browsing coaching websites and seeing the cost and swore that I would never hire one. I also knew that my husband would… Continue reading My Experience with a Triathlon Coach
You know it was a crappy week when the laundry is full of “real” clothes instead of sweaty sports bras, cycling shorts, etc. There isn’t that much to say this week. I had another crappy sick week.

I guess there… Continue reading My First ‘Easy’ Week and some J. Simpson
Oh Saturday. My long ride day. Why don’t I just wake up early when I have no idea what I am doing and get on my bike and finish my ride?
