The Greatest Gift

12/23/11

I had started a blog not long ago, recapping my awesome year. (note the use of sarcasm).  I had entitled my blog "The Year of Awesome". It was a running joke between a friend and I earlier in the year; she had been having awful shoulder problems and was sidelined for much of the summer.

2 is Not a Trend…But I’ll Take It!

12/22/11

Since it’s been a while since I’ve been able to race due to my Humpty Dumpty-like heroics of this past summer, I figured the best I could do whilst biding my time until my tri season begins would be to run a few 5K and 10K races to "stretch my race muscles" the best I could; to go thru the pre-race routine in some shape or form so that when I toe the line, my body is only 99% in shock instead of 100%.

Reentry (sort of)

11/23/11

I had my first "race" in the PC (post crash) era. And man, it was a dozy. I woke up on race morning and you’d have thought it was race morning in Kona. I had a major case of the nerves.

The lobby area is like Candyland, full off all sorts of styles of shoes, not only from Saucony, but from Keds, Sperry and other members of the Collective Brands Family.

Continued Sponsorship from The University Club of Boston

10/17/11

I’m not gonna lie. It’s been a rough year. Typically at this time of year, I get a little blue; the leaves on the trees turn color, which, while stunningly beautiful, is really just a sign that we’re heading into a long, and usually brutal winter. Winter is a bit of a dreary time for a triathlete in Boston. More indoor cycling than you can shake a stick at, running in sleet, snow, slush and on ice. I’ve long believed that the tough conditions we have to face here in the winter make New England triathletes tougher than most, so I suppose it’s a blessing, but most definitely also a curse.
