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

I juggled a bunch of workouts this weekend because my priority was watching the Ohio State vs. Michigan game on Saturday morning! I know, I know...football is not life, but when you're originally from Columbus, Ohio...IT IS. (especially when you're playing that crappy team up North). I just couldn't bear the thought of being on my bike during the game. Fortunately, Ohio State won capping off a busy weekend that also included 3 different birthday parties and an audition.

Here's how it broke down:

Friday: 14 Mile Run, 8:54 overall pace
Saturday: T3 Swim Class at 7:00am (before football)
Sunday: 50 Mile Bike ride with Shawn. Thank Goodness he was up for it because I didn't want to do it by myself!!

This Monday morning, I'm heading off to Bastrop State Park for a morning 16-Mile Trail Run in preparation for the Sunmart 50k.

The best news? This week is the Thundercloud Subs Turkey Trot and, for the first time in four years, I'm NOT directing it!!! I can't tell you what a relief that has been this year.

Happy Thanksgiving Week!
