Colorado Women’s Classic 5k: Race Report

Race morning, Sweet Pea is in my room at 5:45 am. “Can we snuggle? Open your Mother’s Day present!” She’s standing an inch from my face. I mentally berate myself for convincing her to wait until Mother’s Day to give me the present she was dying to give me the day before. My alarm is […]

Prairie Dog 10k Race Report

When I found out I was pregnant with Sweet Pea in June 2011, my first thought was “Yay!” My second thought was, “Shit, this is not going to be the summer I break 47 minutes in the 10k.” I was right. I spent that summer being bloated and nauseated as a little human began to […]

#WorkoutWednesday: 30 Minute Strength Workout

Ever since Lady Bug was born (she’s now two-and-a-half), my running has been two steps forward, one step back, eg) frustrating to the max. As soon as I get in a good groove, I start increasing mileage, throwing in a workout here and there, jumping into a 5k, and then bam, something throws me off. […]

Race Report: Wobble Gobble 5k

The morning started like any other race morning, with two packets; a square packet of Quaker Instant Oatmeal and a rectangular, tube-like packet of Starbucks Via. Unlike a usual morning, I Instagrammed my breakfast. I spent a moment wondering if I was a loser or a cliche or both because really? Choosing a cool filter […]

Race Report: RBVFC Firefightin’ 5k

Summer vacation is for drinking homemade sangria in a red Solo cup on the beach, going out for Soft Serve while the sky turns pink, building epic sandcastles, jumping waves, happy hour on the third floor deck, and racing at sea level. My family (including my parents, my sister, her family, and one of my cousins and her […]

Race Report: 2016 Longmont Outdoor Divas Sprint Triathlon

Overheard at the Outdoor Divas Sprint Triathlon this Sunday… I found the best kombucha bar in the Highlands. Putting on a wetsuit is like putting on a wedding dress. You’re like “Please, zip! Please, zip!” All she ate was sandwiches and mac and cheese, for, like, every meal.   I can’t help noticing these things, I’m a chronic […]

7 Reasons I Work Out

Life is messy and confusing. Sport, on the other hand, is clear and measurable. Normally, my next race motivates me to train. The race is my “why.” But I’ve been slowly coming back from an injury, running consistently for the first time in over six months. Without a race on the horizon, my “why” has been […]

I am a Recovered Impostor Syndrome Sufferer

When I was a kid, I hated sports. I dreaded gym class. I was picked last for every team. I flinched when anything smaller than a soccer ball came near me. Or not near me. And if we’re being honest, it wasn’t just the smaller balls that gave me panic attacks; dodge balls, volleyballs, and tetherballs terrified […]
