About Me

My photo
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

Disneyworld for Triathletes!

Who needs this??

When You've Got This--

and this!

Hubster and I are off to KONA to tailgate with some of the Jack and Adam's Crew at the Ironman World Championships this weekend and fantasize what it would be like if one day I were to become a princess and marry my prince charming...oops wait...wrong fairytale. Who am I kidding?! I've already done that! Nope, we'll be fantasizing about doing that race someday when my golden slipper is actually a shimano shoe and my stage coach is my Guru Crono at the Ironman World Championships in Kona.

Cinderella and Ironman athletes do have one thing in common though...neither wants to see the stroke of Midnight or bad things happen.

Check back this weekend for fun updates and photos of the Ironman World Championships! I'll also be posting on my Facebook page as well.

There are several Austin triathletes doing the race, but Gazelle teammates Desiree Ficker and Pat Evoe get special shoutouts!!! (and photo credits above)

Sweet! You so lucky!

Have a great trip, and take extra careful notes for the day when your fairy godmother (I mean coach) finally sends you off to the biggest ball of all!
