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 […]

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 […]

Ironman Boulder: The View From the Sidelines

I spectated the Boulder Ironman triathlon this weekend. I stood on the grassy edge of the paved path where the athletes ran a marathon under the unrelenting late afternoon sun. Some of the runners had a spring in their step, most were shuffling, and more than a few were walking. An ironman is comprised of a 2.4 […]

You Can Go Away Now, Impostor Syndrome

Catching up on the phone with my best friend on the phone other day, I told her, “I’m writing a book… I’m kind of embarrassed to tell you that. I feel like such a fraud. But you’ve known me forever so I can tell you.” Dear old friend that she is, she told me “Of […]

Race Report: Boulder 70.3

The race happened last weekend, but better late than never…I really really wanted to break 6 hours for this race. I was watching the weather carefully leading up to it, hoping it would not be 90 degrees for the run. I think it ended up being closer to 80 than 90, so definitely could have […]

Race Report: Boulder Peak Triathlon

I rode my bike up to the race venue, using ONLY bike paths, which was pretty cool, considering the race is completely all the way on the other side of town. I got there with only about 30 minutes before they closed transition but I hurried and the only thing I forgot was to take […]

Race Report: 5430 Sprint Triathlon

I was really fired up about this race. Although I had not planned it as an “A” race (that was supposed to be the Barkin’ Dog), I felt like I needed this race to prove my biking did not suck, and that I could still run well after a strong bike. The swim, I was […]

Race Report: Ironman Wisconsin

My goals were to have fun and finish. I had started the season feeling hopeful and strong, confident a huge chunk was to be shaved from my previous ironman time but as spring turned into summer, my confidence dwindled. Was my training suffering due to a poor attitude? Was my attitude a natural result of […]

Race Report: Boulder Peak Triathlon

My goals for this race were simply to do it and have fun. And by “do it” I mean go as fast as possible, but without any expectation of how long that would take. I just haven’t done anything spectacular this season so I didn’t see why today would be different and was in no […]
