Getting ready for the Coeur d’Alene 70.3 tomorrow. I’m freakishly nonchalant about this one…probably because I decided to make it into a duathlon. I’ve been coming back from a knee injury this year and have decided to let go of the pressure, enjoy the ride, seize the day, be a part of the excitement and listen to my body. Not sure if this will be the actual outcome since we are picking up packets and going to the athlete briefing today. My plan is to do the swim and the bike, pull out of transition at the run and go to the beer tent. I’ll keep you posted. I’m trying on this mindset to see how it works.
Allow me to introduce myself since I am new to blogging.
I began participating in triathlons in 2015, with an initial goal of completing a “Try a Tri” Sprint and then Olympic distance triathlon the same summer. As my enthusiasm for the sport grew, I began training for longer distances, culminating in completion of the Arizona Ironman in 2018. I hope that we, as women, can embrace our potential for connection and confidence through sport regardless of athletic prowess.
I am a licensed psychologist and registered dietitian and specialize in the treatment of people with health–related problems. I am currently studying for Certification as a Specialist in Sports Dietetics (CSSD).
I live in Hood River, Oregon with my husband and 2 teenaged children. I can often be found on my bike, at the pool, or meandering in the forest with my future trail-running buddy, Dash @instagram.com/dash_the_dalmatian1
Thanks for reading!
