A Day in the Tri Life – Indoor Edition

A Day in the Tri Life – Indoor Edition

Is there a better time to finish a blog post than when you’re sitting in bed, stuffing your face with carbs, just waiting for race morning to arrive? I don’t think so.

Trading in My Heels and Make-up for Chlorine and Carbs

Some of you reading this may know my story of getting serious about triathlon, but I thought it would be worth sharing the FULL story according to me. Sit back and relax – this is a long one :). In order to capture my full journey to where I am today, I’ll need to back up about 10 years – that puts me at graduating high school and starting university.  I had run track and cross-country in high school and…
