Buffalo Shamrock Run 2019!

By |

On Saturday, Ellie and I braved the cold and driving snow to complete our first ever Shamrock Run in the Buffalo first ward community. It was, to summarize simply, awesome!

Pretty bib!

We had a pretty late night prior to racing, so we were super fortunate that the race didn’t start until noon. Although I don’t recommend […]

First Long Run of 2019!

By |

Ellie and I started the building process toward our first major road race of the season, which means one thing: a weekend long run. I am happy to report it wasn’t too bad! The weather was near perfect for a February run, which is quite remarkable considering less than twelve hours later, we had fierce […]

Fascinating Look Into A Professional Triathlete’s Budget

By |

I came across a SUPER interesting (ok I am a nerd) post about income / cost of being a professional triathlete. Professional triathlete Cody Beals, shoutout to Guelph, Ontario, has posted each year of his professional career his income and expenditures on his blog, and it is a really interesting read.

Triathlon isn’t exactly the […]

Understanding Heart Rate Zones

By |

The month of January has absolutely flown by, and my primary goal of being consistent has been going well. This month I was mostly focused on getting back into the routine of working out. I wasn’t really focused on my times, mileage, or stats. As we head into February, consistency is still going to be […]

Ride or Die: Winter Running

By |

I’ve seen *~*beauty gurus*~* on YouTube publish “Ride or Die” videos with their favorite makeup and skin care products (and get overly excited when we have a product in common), so I thought it would be interesting to figure out what my all-time-favorite, can’t-live-without-it winter running accoutrement are. I’ve landed on my top five.

I’m sure […]

Weigh-In Wednesday January 2nd, 2019: New Year, New Us!

By |

With the new year, my number one resolution is to put real time and energy into the blog again. To do this, it really starts with the Weigh-In Wednesday posts. The whole point of this blog was accountability from the very beginning, and not doing the weigh-in post is not a very good way to […]

Christmas on Cape Cod! Happy New Year!

By |

On Christmas morning, Ellie, Audrey, and I piled into our new Subaru (woo new car!) and drove east to the ocean. This would be Audrey’s first time on Cape Cod, which has been a bucket list item for Ellie and me since we adopted her eight years ago. Finally we had the time off (or […]

50×4: Ohio! A Christmas Story 10K

By |

Welcome to the inaugural post of a new series by Ellie and me. We’re calling it 50×4, which is short for Fifty Bagels, Fifty Dates, Fifty Races, Fifty States! That’s right, folks. Ellie and I are going to attempt to race in all fifty states (and D.C. and maybe some other places)! 

Ohio: Cleveland’s A Christmas Story […]

Baltimore City Turkey Trot 2018!

By |

On Thanksgiving, Ellie, Jeff, Adrienne and myself woke up to a brisk Baltimore morning and made our way over to the Waverly YMCA for a good ole’ fashioned turkey trot! None of us have been running, so expectations were low, but we had a blast!

Before the race, we did a quick tour of the inside […]

Run716 2018 In The Books!

By |

On Sunday, Ellie and I woke up bright and early for the second annual Run 716 race in downtown Buffalo. It is so refreshing running a race locally, and also not having to cart around a bike, wet suit, and everything else involved in a triathlon. So much easier!

Last year Ellie and I set a […]
