  • Paying it Forward as an Ironman Volunteer

    I originally signed up to volunteer at the Arizona Ironman so that I could have priority registering for the 2016 Ironman. The Arizona race is one of the most popular Ironman races in the circuit and it typically sells out within minutes. Volunteers get to register for the next year’s race before it is opened […]

  • Being a Part of a Team

    For the first decade of my running life I was somewhat of a lone wolf. I ran by myself, and while I had plenty of runner friends, I wasn’t a part of any team or real running community. Then in 2012 I joined the Oiselle team and it completely changed everything. I suddenly felt like […]

  • Product Review: AfterShokz Bluez 2S Wireless Headphones

    Unless I’m with other people, I rarely ever workout without listening to something – whether it’s music on the ipod or a show on Netflix when I’m on the trainer. I will fully admit that when I’m working out solo, I get bored or lose focus if I don’t have something to listen to or […]

  • Training Update and A New Coach

  • Review: Swanson Health Products

    When trying new things and testing products or businesses, I try really hard not to compare them to their competitors (if I’m familiar with their competitors). But admittedly, that’s sometimes really hard not to do. Let me try both ways – first with no knowledge of the competition, and then a quick comparison. The company […]

  • What Does a C-Section Scar have Anything to do with a Foot Injury?

    The body really is an amazing thing. It’s too bad I didn’t do well in biology or anatomy classes when I was younger, because now it all fascinates me. I’ve taken the past few weeks off of running and have instead been focusing on my biking and swimming because I’ve had a nagging pain on […]

  • Never Say Never

    Over the past year or so, I’ve grown so in love with triathlons that I actually believe it will be my lifestyle for as long as I’m able to exercise. Running will always be my number one love, but the cross-training that comes with triathlons has greatly reduced my injury rate, which ultimately affects my […]

  • Product Review: Extend Nutrition

    I am a big snacker. I almost always have a morning snack and an afternoon snack in between meals so that I don’t turn into a crazy hangry person. And since a lot of time I am at work, those snacks need to be convenient. Typical go-to snacks are things like Larabars, Kind Bars, granola […]
