Small Changes, Big Difference

New Years Day came and went and I did not make any resolutions.  However, I did get engaged! And then, in the days that followed, I forgot all about resolutions and instead started planning a wedding! I spent DAYS, not hours, on Pinterest pinning ideas for wedding updos, dresses, event sites, color-boards (which was a […]

Healthy Snacks for Road Trips

I love road trips! Except the packing. And making lists so that I don’t forget anything. But the actual road trip, that is what I love!

Prep Work

I must have balance. Work/life balance, yes. That one I am pretty good at–setting boundaries and finding time either at the beginning of the day, or after work, to do my workouts. The training/life balance thing is trickier for me. I remember when I was training for 70.3s and doing all that laundry! It seems […]

Good Stuff: May 2013

Monday was Memorial Day, and JB and I took full advantage of the day off. We skipped our recovery spin and opted instead of for endless cups of coffee, bacon, eggs, and live streaming of the women’s Volkswagen USA Cycling Pro Road Race Nationals.
