Last week I signed up for a 15k run. It’s an easy distance compared to a full Ironman. But since gaining a few pounds, enjoying an unstructured schedule, and feeling mentally weak – I’m feeling apprehensive, tired. My lack of motivation stirred up feeling of failure, sadness, frustration. Then today an associate, an entrepreneurial guru, shared his business[…]
Don’t buy a drunk a drink. That Irish quote always comes to mind when violence is plastered on the news. To me the quote pleads for us to live with peace and not add to the world’s problems. So, after the police shootings in St. Paul, Baton Rouge, and Dallas the quote lit a fire in my[…]

Yesterday during lunch I had a nice, impromptu conversation with my office’s property management company, McKenna & Co. While touring the facilities we talked about the drought, wild fires, and sustainable landscape. Come to find out they are replacing turf grass with drought resistant landscape.

For six-months I’ve been coaching a friend train for her first 70.3, an Ironman half distance triathlon. Race day is next month, and last week she seeked an inspirational spark.

A friend is on a mission. It is a mission embraced by nearly every woman (and a few men), usually in April or May. The mission is to have a beach body by July, and she is calling this mission, #OperationNoMuffinTop. When I read the mission name on her Facebook post I laughed. Loved the name.[…]
I just heard that 80% of the world’s population (1.7 billion) will experience some form of trauma in their lifetime. And from what I know about trauma, 10% of them (170 million) will have PTSD … Did I do that math right??? 170 million!!! If so, that is a crazy amount of people who are forced to dance[…]
People often talk about wanting to race then they say, But I don’t have time. But I don’t have support. But I don’t like to run. But, but, but … The one thing they don’t realize is that their “but” is literally keeping them on their butt. Been there done that. Thousands of “buts” kept me on[…]
Hard to admit this, but … my #1 challenge when racing Ironman is strengthening a weak mindset. This post shares my #1 tool to develop a peaceful & powerful mindset. First, let me share this. Early into training I learned Ironman requires more mental strength then physical strength. Of course it’s physical. You must swim[…]
Ironman racing brings one major problem … blisters!!! I’ve trained with five different shoes, three different brands. Ran with Vaseline between the toes. Tried different socks, two socks, no socks. Read running books. Some say run on your toes. Some say don’t run on your toes. Still each race brings blisters and usually the loss of[…]
