How You Can Become ‘Top 5’ (Or Better) at Everything

October 27, 2013


As my client and I were finishing up her session I asked her about the upcoming triathlon workouts she’d be starting with her team, for next springs’ youth triathlon season. She ages up this year, meaning she’s now the youngest in the next age bracket up. And in case you were unaware, the youth triathlon […]

Food Relationships | Are You “Emo” About your Food?

April 18, 2012


Remember being ga-ga for some boy or girl in your youth who you’d literally go to the ends of the Earth for…in a kind of unhealthy, young & stupid/sweet kind of way? Surely most of us have had that relationship that made us lose our damn minds for the person in those initial ‘shiny new […]

Priorities: How did you come up with yours?

January 11, 2012


I once attended a business seminar & came away remembering this line more than anything else…”A person is motivated by 1 of 2 things – what are they going to get or how can they prevent getting hurt.” The part that really stayed with me was this next line the speaker said; from whatever standpoint […]

And if you’re not watching TV, you’re smacked in the face online & in magazines for questionable weight loss supplements & fad diets. We’ve reached […]

Improvise. Adapt. Overcome.

August 11, 2011


The day will not always go as planned. The weather will not be always be perfect on race day. You will not get a great nights’ sleep. You’ll fall off the healthy-nutrition wagon. The triathlon will change to a duathlon (30 mins before race start…as happened to one of my athletes in a previous year). […]

Making Decisions about your Life

June 20, 2011


I *adore* people who stand in line for 5+ mins waiting to get to the counter to order, then proceed to ‘ummmm wellllll’ there way into an indecisive order. You know these people, every.single.decision they have to make gets an “ummm” & a long stare at the menu board before the decision is offered up. […]
