Cranberry Olympic

Top three women

Last weekend, I got a chance to race an Olympic distance triathlon (0.9 mile swim, 26.2 mile bike, and a 6.2 mile run).  I’ve only done one Olympic, as my second triathlon last year.   All of my races this year have been sprints or 70.3’s, so I was excited to take a crack at the Olympic. Read More

Boulder 70.3

When I saw the Boulder 70.3 listed as one of QT2 key team events this year, I knew it was one I wanted to do. I’ve always wanted to visit Colorado, and I even have family out there that I haven’t seen since they moved out from the East Coast years ago.  Luckily, it fit well into my race schedule, about 6 weeks out from 70.3 World Champs, so I registered for the race and planned to spend the week after training and vacationing.   Read More

This race was my first triathlon of the year, and my first trip to the state of Texas.  It was also one of QT2’s key team races for the year, so we had over 30 athletes racing!   Read More

Boston Marathon Tragedy

The events at yesterday’s marathon hit this city hard.  This senseless act took three lives, injured over 100 others, and destroyed thousands of dreams of crossing the Boston Marathon finish line.  I’m so many emotions right now.  I’m deeply saddened, heart-broken.  I’m shocked.  I’m angry.  I’m confused.

Becoming a "real" triathlete

This post started out as recap from QT2 Camp, but most of the details were covered on my teammates blogs (check out posts from Matt, Jessie, and Kim, and a post + video from Pedro).  But, I was in a unique position at camp, and it got me thinking quite a bit about where I was a year ago, where I am now, and where I am headed.

Derry 16 miler 2013

So, it’s been quite a while since I posted.  I’ve had about 4 different blog posts drafted, and I’m finally getting them up!   It’s been a busy, but great beginning of the year.  Let’s rewind a bit… Read More

Hangover Classic 5k

Happy New Year!  Despite the name, I was not in fact hungover for this race!   My NYE was pretty low-key, just spent hanging out with some friends.  Luckily, this race didn’t start until 11:30am, so I could still stay up and enjoy the NYE festivities without sacrificing any sleep! Read More

2012 recap!

Happy new year!  2012 was a good year for me in running and triathlon.  It was a relief to make it through the year with not one injury setback!  Being able to consistently train throughout the year brought some good racing with multiple PRs.  I got back in the pool, and even competed in a few swim meets.  Though not as fast as I once was, I’ve really started to enjoy swimming again.   I also have enjoyed learning how to become a cyclist.  I still have tons of work to do on the bike, but I’ve definitely become much more confident!

Turkey Sweet Potato Minestrone Soup

With the colder weather, I’ve been craving soup lately.  So I made one of my favorites, a recipe I got from my Mom (who makes the best soups!).  It’s healthy, filling, and super easy to make.  It made a perfect post-ride lunch today! Read More
