About Me

Austin, Texas, United States
I'll make you laugh, or break my neck trying. This is usually accomplished with daily bouts of swimming, biking and running. A former "chub-a-holic," I got fit and healthy the good old fashioned way and went from a mid-pack athlete to top age group runner and triathlete. I'm a Writer and USAT Level 1 Certified Triathlon Coach. I guess that makes me part Tina Fey and part Jillian Michaels. Visit my coaching site at www.fomotraining.com

Boy or Girl?!

First comes love...

Then comes marriage...

Then comes Carrie with a...

















countdown??









In many ways, training for my first Full Ironman will be much like a pregnancy: I’ll be hungry all the time, exhausted beyond words, overwhelmed by the lack of time in the day, surprised by the changes in my body, excited, nervous, apprehensive and fearful. However, at the end of the third term (or training phase), I will endure pain and exhaustion, only to give birth to a new person...a beautiful person...

Boy or Girl??? F*ck that...I'm giving birth to an Ironman.

(too bad I can't get an epidural for this one)

I kinda thought hammering the workouts and buying a new bike was a bit inconsistent with being "knocked up." You tease.

Woo hoo!

Funny enough, I recently read a post where a woman said she'd rather give birth again than do another Ironman... which I found interesting seeing as how I'd pick the Ironman but I'm actually staring down my first attempt at birth...

Good one. I like the analogy.

Too cool! Btw this is my first iPhone blog comment :-) seriously though, you so rock! Does this mean shawn is doing one too?

Great tease...I didn't think a "good" Catholic girl would be knocked up this early in marriage. :)
Best of luck in your Ironman training. You will do awesome!
