Kicking off training for the California International Marathon with a 50k on my birthday!
A quick update on life after baby.
The past few months have been absolutely non-stop on all levels – personal, professional, and triathlon related. I’ve been given some big opportunities at work which has meant a lot of travel, I am on my way back to Bend from my 7th trip in the past 11 weeks. Additionally, April and I have hadContinue reading “Updates on Training, Racing, and Life so far in 2016”
2016 is off to an awesome start! I’m back to structured training which is exciting after a few months of staying fit without following a schedule. It seems like half of Bend has got some sort of sickness to start the new year as well, and unfortunately April and I both picked that up. IContinue reading “2016: Goals and Outlook”

The last two times I’ve run H2C was with a semi-competitive team from Nike, this year was withContinue reading “Hood to Coast 2015: The Year of the Storm”
I’ve shared bits and pieces of my transformation on this blog, on instagram, and with friends – but I have never taken the time to really tell the story.
