currently // summer 2017


Here’s a look at what’s been up this summer. Well, mostly what’s been up since IRONMAN Canada. Because we all know that peak training doesn’t leave much time for anything besides swim bike run eat recover sleep repeat, right?


Better and more settled. Not gonna lie, the post-race blues were legit. More so than after any other race. I cried a LOT – and then looked at the 35-39F AG race results and got pissed. I honestly don’t know that I’ll ever feel good about IRONMAN Canada – and that’s ok – but rather than dwell on it, I’m choosing to look at it as an opportunity. An opportunity to really recover physically and mentally (five IMs in two years… yikes), to strengthen + sharpen my mental game (lots of books to read!), replenish the well, to swim bike run when I feel like it, and to focus on things outside of triathlon. Five weeks out, I’m feeling immensely lighter and better – and am hungry for redemption. This journey isn’t over yet!

The off-season is all about embracing life outside triathlon… because yes, it does indeed exist. In addition to my November goals (creating and kombucha!), I’ve had one email in my inbox for a couple months: Fall letterpress classes. Letterpress has long intrigued me… its…

So, it’s June, though it feels like April here. And, a new month means new goals. But, first, my May goals… were 50/50. The pluses: We organized some of the disarray in the house – hello, clean(er) dining table; goodbye, recycled months-old magazines –…

December… I’m not even sure what to say about you. Between starting a new job, events many evenings and traveling to northern Minnesota and Chicago, there wasn’t much free time. So, December’s goals – as well as all routines – kinda got lost in…
