Wonder Woman Ride

If I were in Utah on September 18th,
this is what I would be doing:

It is a beautiful ride in and around Payson
created by women for women.

If you don't feel up for 100 miles,
you can do 30 or 70.

Here is why it is going to be awesome
and why you will love it:

there are going to be a lot of fun, amazing ladies to mingle with
my coach, Mahogani, is one of the best race organizers
great swag
September is pretty much the best month for biking
finish line with great food, music, and surprises
a mascot in costume
super cute finisher's necklace

these really darling earrings

I really should not even have started this post.
Now I am even more sad I won't be there.

Believe me,
you don't want to miss out on this party!
These women will have thought of
everything to spoil you!

As I am writing this post
I chatted with one of the volunteers, Marci Simons,
and she let me in on some fun secrets
regarding the event.
(if you are a woman)
do me a favor and sign up, will ya?
Carlee? Jessica? Heather? Jen?

Can we move here already?  I love this place. 
I raced again. After a 10-month hiatus from racing due to injury, I stepped up to the starting line of the St. George Half Marathon curious to see what my body and mind had to give. Usually running 13.1 miles isn't a big deal for me but after being sidelined for so long and missing the entire 2016 season (except Oceanside which I probably should've missed), I've had a lot of questions swirling around in my head regarding this year: What will it take to be truly healthy? Will I ever be fit again? Can my body handle racing in 2017? Do I still want to race? What if my competitive fire is gone? Am I ready for a possible setback? What if I fail again? I know failing doesn't make me a failure. But what about repeatedly failing? Does that make me a failure? Most of these questions I won't have an answer to until I give it a try. Even then some might go unanswered and that's ok. Probably the one I have asked myself the mos…

RTTC - Sonja Wieck - New Coach!

I've known Sonja Wieck for a while. Scratch that. She has known me for a while. I have known (about) her for years. Can't remember how I found her blog but I did and couldn't stop reading. Not (only) because she has been at the very top of our age group for years and I wanted to find out her secrets to being fast and successful but because she has such good insights into all aspects of life and can express my exact feelings better than I can myself at times! We have had some good battles out there on race day and, whenever she is spectating a race that I am competing in, I breathe a sigh of relief: Someone out there is going to know JUST what I will need to hear! So, yes, I love that girl! 

I caught glimpses of her building this coaching business and I knew that it was going to be good. Really good. Sonja doesn't do things half-heartedly. When she is in. She is ALL IN. I was happy with my coach - Liz Waterstraat/Multipart Mastery - in 2016 and was planning on continui…

Oregon - The Consolation Trip

frolicking on the beach 

I had been really excited for my trip to Ironman Texas and once it became clear that racing (and training) was not an option for the near future, I began to make other plans. Karl and I made an arrangement after we realized that we will be at his parents for longer than originally hoped for: I would get to go on a little trip once a month. Or maybe I just told him that's what I was going to do. Can't remember. Knowing myself and how much not being able to train affects my mental health, I was keen to take a break from doctor visits and physical therapy appointments here and there to do the things that make me feel alive and bring me joy.

As soon as Texas was off the table, I called my good friend Anne and booked a flight to Portland. I had been wanting to visit her for so long but money and time away from home is usually allocated to racing. Might as well make the best of a shitty racing season!

So at the end of May I took the train to Salt Lake, the t…
