The Breakup

I’m just not that into them. Or maybe they’re not that into me. Mizuno Wave Creations have been my jam for my entire life as a marathoner. That’s since 2007 in case you were wondering. All 50+ halfs and 8 fulls, all in Mizuno. So much history. Things started unraveling last year. Something changed, causing [Read More]

Europe emerald princess

We’re back from our epic trip, if you hadn’t guessed. Wonderful does not do it justice. Actually no words do. It was beyond amazing to spend 3 sun-drenched weeks trekking through Europe with 3 of my favorite people.

It’s a Sickness

heinous race

How I know there’s another triathlon in my future: I crossed the finish line and as soon as I flopped into the Caveman’s arms my first words were “I’m not doing that again.” Those were my exact words when I finished my first marathon in 2007.
