YOU Can Make A Difference—Help High River!

Posted Jul 9 2013 in , , , , ,

On June 20, 2013 it rained. And rained. The runoff came down from the mountains and joined the rain. The rivers burst their banks and…it flooded. You’ve probably heard about the Alberta floods. The amount of water was absolutely unprecedented. On Friday June 21, I sat glued in front of the television watching, as many […]

The Swickie

Posted Jun 12 2013 in , , , , , , , , ,

Swickie: Swim hickie that results from shockingly painful chaffing on the neck while swimming. This isn’t a technical term, well at least not that I know of, but it should be. For me, a swickie will result during long distance training swims (when I wear a certain bathing suit) because I only breathe on one […]

If you’re competing participating in triathlons, you probably already know about the fourth event. But if you’re new to the sport, or you’ve up until now, participated solely in ‘pool triathlons’ you may not be familiar with the totally exhausting, always challenging, sometimes embarrassing event of…putting on the wetsuit.

Posted May 11 2013 in , , , , , , , , ,

It has been one year today since we lost my Grandma. I don’t know why people say that. “We lost her…” What does that mean?  Did we lose her? Sure, she’s not here in body anymore. I can no longer hug her and smell her ‘grandma’ smell that was always a little like baby powder, […]

Taking a Rest

Posted Apr 8 2013 in , , , , , , ,

When it comes  to working out, we all know that you get out of it what you put into it. That’s a not a new concept. It’s also not a new concept that when you want something bad enough (like perhaps a stronger body) you have to do the work that’s needed. Except when you’re […]

I actually struggled with posting this or not, but…finally I decided I should (obviously) because training for an event isn’t always flowery sunshine runs and personal bests and high fives. Sometimes… Tri training is in full swing and for the most part it’s going well and I’m enjoying it. And that’s always the ideal thing […]

Happy Valentine’s Day! I don’t honestly know how many people really celebrate ‘love day’, but for all of you that do….Happy Valentine’s Day.

I’m not new. I mean, I’ve been doing this parenting thing for ten and a half years now. And while I recognize that doesn’t put me in the same league as a lot of you, I’d like to think I’ve figured out a few things along the way. For example, consistency and follow through. I’m […]

Have you ever had one of those weeks where you’re just crazy busy, running everywhere and trying to keep all the balls in the air? Um…yes, I know…of course you have. Everybody has. I have had one of those weeks. It just seemed to be jam packed with things that ate away all my time […]

It’s the end of 2012. Only hours left, really. It’s been a great year, but I’m excited for what 2013 will bring. Like a lot of people, I usually spend some time reflecting on the year that’s gone and think about what I’d like from the year to come. In the past, I’ve set resolutions, […]
