After rolling the idea of blogging around in my head for oh, years now, I finally bit the bullet. I’m in the midst of my second season in a row blown to smithereens due to injuries and plain bad luck — and if I can’t find an outlet in 2 hour runs and half a day spent on my bike, I thought maybe I could find it in writing things down — processing my thoughts and sending them out in the world for one or two people to stumble across and maybe even relate with.
So, here I am! Recovering from a broken hip and reconfiguring my race plans to make sure I can still get an adrenaline rush or two in this season. Swapping out speedwork with physical therapy, trying out aquajogging for the first time, and exercising my patience more than I am my body.
I’m planning to provide regular updates on things like:
- training and race recaps
- dealing with injury/recovery
- gear, nutrition, bikes and more
- local intel: DC-area fitness studios, bike trails, tri shops & more
- food: meal prep, race fuel, maybe a few recipes here and there
