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

Stick a Fork in Me...

A couple of weeks ago, I scheduled to have my bike dropped off at Jack and Adams this afternoon for a pre-Longhorn 70.3 tune-up. Matt at the shop told me that I wouldn't get it back until this Wednesday because they're closed on Tuesdays. He asked if that would be o.k. with me or would I need it before then.

What my mind was thinking: 
"Hmmmm....I usually go to the T3 indoor cycling class on Tuesday evenings, so maybe I should wait and drop it off later in the week...I've been slacking on the biking lately and need the workout." 

What I said instead:
"Wednesday is GREAT! I don't need it before then."

Can you tell I'm a little burnt out on cycling???

Yep...I'll be winging the Longhorn 70.3 race on October 5th. Winging a Half-Ironman. 
Now, THAT'S funny.

Having started all this as a runner, it is kind of liberating just to lace on shoes and go.
