HONEY, DID I GET THE BACK OF MY LEGS?

One of our friends wrote a very cute post – “What I never thought I’d have to say to my child”.  This certainly got us thinking about all the things we never thought we’d have to say or we’ve added, that we never thought we’d have to hear in our life with a triathlete. However, being married to triathletes, having many friends who are triathletes,…

I’M NOT THAT MOM!

Hands up if you are tired of people telling you to stop living through others and live for yourself.  My hand is WAY up!  For those who say we do too much for others and for those who say we have no life of our own, I have one thing to say – Stop telling me how I should live and ask me if the…

SPRING AND THE TRIWIFE

Hey, I know it’s only February, but I’m thinking spring. The trihubby is already in training mode and focused on his first race coming up at the end of March. Me, I’m thinking about my own spring training as a triwife. I can’t just rest on last year’s laurels, after all. There are things to do and actually people to see to prepare myself for…

SORRY, BUT TRIHUBBY HAS A 4:30AM SWIM…

Being married to a triathlete during the holiday season can be a blessing and a curse.  After years of living this lifestyle, I have learned how to use it to my advantage, but please, no one take that personally! The holidays are filled with open houses, fundraisers, events, dinners, and parties.  This week alone, Sunday-Saturday we could have been out 7 nights at 13 different…

Hooked On Triathlons – The Making Of A Triwife

One of my friends joined our ranks this summer and is an official TRIWIFE.  (I’m so proud).  Actually, I’m so proud of both of them.  We’re talking a late bloomer here people…I asked Holly to share her experience and tell us what it’s like to be a newbie and how we can help.  Enjoy her story and be sure to let her know what tidbits…

DIARY OF A KONA BOUND TRIWIFE – MY RACE REPORT

Wow, I seriously can’t believe I’m writing this already and that we went from Kona bound to Ironman Kona 2014 as a thing of the past…It went by quickly and this triwife survived unscathed.  I am now back home and life has returned to my normal… I have to say that this was one of those RARE, pretty much perfect vacations, for me at least. The…

DIARY OF A KONA BOUND TRIWIFE – RACE WEEK

We have now been on The Big Island since late last Thursday night and time has flown by.  I can’t believe THE race is almost here.  I keep hearing, “I have nothing to prove” interspersed with “I’m a little wound up right now.”  I’ll just let him have his period of schizophrenia….. Was very happy to run into one of our fellow racers at breakfast…

MATT DIXON POOLSIDE CHAT

I had the distinct pleasure to sit down poolside in Kona with purplepatchfitness coach, Matt Dixon.  Matt is coach to pros such as Meredith Kessler, Tim Reed, and Jesse Thomas, just to name a few – not to mention some trihubbies we know.  I asked him questions related to the role of trisupporters in triathlete training and we discussed what both groups need to do…

DIARY OF A KONA BOUND TRIWIFE – THE WEEK BEFORE

We’re getting closer and closer to THE DAY…..Kona bound.  I’ve now heard, “My mind’s in Kona” multiple times to be precise.  The bike has been packed up, delivered, and per Tribike Transport’s message, picked up and on it’s way to heaven.  The shirts and pants have been separated in the closet into “what I’m taking to Hawaii”. The spare bedroom has become more cluttered with…
