I need to change things up. I’ve lost my workout mojo over the past few months due to the cold weather, early darkness, traveling, moving, illness, and a bit of apathy thrown in as well. I tried to give myself some inspiration by signing up for a two mile open water swim in May as
I don’t do resolutions as a general rule. It just seems so contrived- “It’s January 1st! What’s wrong with your life???” I prefer a slightly more optimistic approach to self-improvement.

I’m a sucker for headlines that go something like “10 Tips on How to Cut Your Energy Bill” or “Quick and Easy Ways to Save Money”. Even though past experience has taught me that 99% of these articles are useless, I always want to make sure that no, I’m not missing some great idea on
As you may have gathered from my previous posts, Heather’s First Ocean Swim and My First Aquabike that, (besides being unable to commit to first or third person in my titles), I’m leading up to an even bigger event- my first triathlon. The triathlon in question is the Iron Girl Columbia Triathlon, an all female, sprint distance race.
Since we lost power a few weeks ago I’ve been pretty awful about exercising. I’ve blamed the heat and humidity, and then I’ve been using the fever my son has run since Wednesday as my most recent excuse, so I’m holding myself accountable with this post. I need to get back in gear so I’m
