This month, Propel has been asking us to work out with a friend for our Add Flavor challenge. That’s not much of a challenge for me, since I love to work out with friends, but okay.

So far, most of my tri training has been solitary. This has definitely been a departure from…

I Feel Alive

I feel so alive. May I hazard to say, more alive than I’ve ever felt?

I have a job I love so very much with supportive and amazing coworkers turned friends. It challenges me each and every day, and it’s something I’m so passionate about.

I finished a huge volunteer commitment that was something I never thought I could do, and that many times throughout those two years, I didn’t think I could do.

Open Water Swim Clinic with JackRabbit Sports

In the several triathlons I’ve done, the swim has usually been the most humbling part for me.

Triathlon Is a Humbling Sport (or Three!)

Triathlon Is a Humbling Sport (or Three!)

Welp, triathlon training continues to be humbling.

I thought this post would be about how I went to a training camp and now feel so much stronger and more confident about my abilities.

LOL.

Yesterday morning, I woke up at 5 and took the train all the way up to 145th and Riverside to meet Sam, my triathlon angel, for a tri training camp.

The plan was to swim, then bike, then run. We swam for…

Princeton Half Ironman 70.3 Training: Week of July 7-14

I started out numbering my training by week, but then lost a few weeks, so we’re back to dates. 

Last week, I had a work retreat and a trip out to the , so I tried to do the best I could.

A Lovely Hamptons Weekend

A Lovely Hamptons Weekend

HELLO from the Hamptons!

I took today off from work, and although I love my job, I could not be happier that this morning’s view was this and not my computer screens.

So, my friend Heather that I’m out here with is a blog reader turned IRL friend. She came up to me at the Derby party this year and said she read my blog and had joined the Junior League because of me. We started chatting and…

Another Kind of Workout

Another Kind of Workout

Yesterday morning, I woke up with the sun and rode up to Central Park to get a good 1.5 hour ride in before work.

By 3pm, my coworkers and I boarded a bus to go to Crystal Springs for our company retreat. I had never been on a company retreat before, so I was very curious about what we were getting ourselves into.

Well, when you work for a fitness company… it will probably involve fitness.

After…
