Part I: Ragnar Vegas with Team Nuun

This weekend, I had the opportunity to run Ragnar Vegas with Nuun Hydration‘s Viva Los Electrolitos!  As I mentioned to my teammate Evelin, I have a difficult time recapping relays events on my blog.  It seems impossible to do the experience any justice within the context of one blog post.  But, I’m really going to try here and will split it up into a few posts. After a five hour flight, I made my way to the Flamingo hotel to meet up {Read More}

Friday Five: Life Lately

So, lately, I suck at blogging and it seems to be pushed to the bottom of the priority list every darn week.  It’s not that I don’t have plenty of ideas whirling around in my head.  It’s just that the motivation to put it down on paper, or this website, disappears when my free time is limited to late night and early mornings. Thanks to the lovely ladies of the DC Trifecta (Mar + Cynthia + Courtney) and their Friday Five {Read More}

Volunteering at the West Point Triathlon

This weekend, I had the opportunity to volunteer with Team Red, White and Blue at the West Point Triathlon.  When there was a call out for volunteers, I signed our little family up to help with the adult triathlon.  Jake and Cora were later filled in on my bright idea.  Seriously though… I run so many races and truly am thankful for the support of volunteers on each and every race day.  I thought that it would be a great way {Read More}
