See what I’m up to in training in the posts below.

  • The 2020 Triathlon Season is Cancelled (6/12/2020) - We’re 3 months into the COVID-19 pandemic and one thing is clear, the 2020 triathlon season has been cancelled. The big races I had planned for this year were Chattanooga 70.3, Blue Ridge 70.3, and my first full distance IRONMAN Lake Placid. I guess we’ll try again in 2021! In terms of triathlon training, I’m […]
  • January, February 2020 + Coronavirus (3/15/2020) - Again, it seems to have been a long break since my last blog post. I was supposed to be writing a race report for the Parris Island Triathlon this weekend, but things have really gone a bit wild in the first 2.5 months of 2020. To start the year, I woke up on January 1, […]
  • November/December 2019 Reflections (12/16/2019) - It feels like it’s been a while since I updated my athlete blog. The triathlon season finished for me in mid-October with The Dam Tri. I then did the Gran Fondo Hincapie in Greenville on October 19th. I intended to do the 80-mile Gran route, but I took a spill early in the descent down […]
  • Training + TriMarni Camp – June 2019 (7/3/2019) - Although I had no races in the schedule for June, it proved to be a busy month of training and work. When my work stress increases, I have to be able to manage my training stress better. I had a lot of prospect meetings this month so I was appreciative of a 13.5 hour training […]
  • Training – May 2019 (5/31/2019) - May’s training was all about learning! After an intentional heavy load of training near the end of April, there were fewer hours in my Training Peaks to start the month. But the learning really came from being more flexible and not being obsessed with green boxes in my Training Peaks. I kicked off the month […]
  • Training – April 2019 (5/2/2019) - April marked the official start of my 2019 triathlon season. Much of the focus was on Florida 70.3 on April 14th, but there was some good training leading up to it, and a big training block afterwards. Training leading up to Florida 70.3 The first week of April was a lighter week of training with […]
  • Training – March 2019 (4/1/2019) - I can’t believe we’re three months into 2019 already! As a business owner, I’ve spent the last week looking at quarter 1 results and comparing them to 2018. As a triathlete, I realized this month was the last big block of training before the season starts for me on April 14th at Florida 70.3! Overall […]
  • Training – February 2019 (2/28/2019) - As I look back at my training for February 2019, two words come to mind – struggle bus. Physically, I’m feeling fine. Mentally, I’m pretty okay, too. But this month’s training saw me not excited about every session, but making it work. The Bike Situation Late in January, my husband discovered some damage on my […]
  • Training – January 2019 (1/30/2019) - The first month of 2019 is coming to an end. January training has me working on my base fitness, with some checkpoints thrown in there, too. As we near the end of the month, I feel the training volume and intensity growing a bit. This month, I’ve trained anywhere from 8.5 hours to 13.5 hours […]
  • 2019 Race Schedule (1/27/2019) - I’m excited to see how my race schedule for 2019 is shaping up.
