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

Look out Tucson, Here We Come!


Leaving for Tucson to attend my USAT Level 1 Coaching Certification classes this weekend and I can't wait. In between classroom time learning about nutrition, periodization, and signs of overtraining, Hubster and I are renting a couple of bikes and hope to ride a portion of the infamous Mt. Lemmon, along with other riding and running routes known to many in the world of multisport.

Hopefully in a few weeks, I'll actually practice what I get to preach!

Coach Carrie does have a nice ring to it.

The climb up Mt. Lemmon is a kick in the pants and a kick in the teeth! Be sure to have plenty of warm gear because it is COLD at the top and the ride down will freeze your fingers, toes, and nose off.

Have a great time at your USAT Coaching Certification weekend and when they hand you the test at the end just pause and take a few deep breaths. It is a take home test but when you first get it your stomach kinda bottoms out. You will do great!

Have fun in Tucson!!

I didn't get to ride up Mt Lemmon last year when we were there getting fit for bikes but loved riding in Tucson in general. Lots of cyclists everywhere.
