Virtually There

My year end goal of improving my fitness is three weeks away. I am focusing on eating clean - most of the time - and keep to my workout routine. ¬†Swimming is one of my favorite sports and I get to the pool to swim four mornings a week. I am also cycling on my... Continue Reading →

Peaceful Moment

In two weeks it will be a full year that I have been writing this blog and today is the first day I have sat down with a blank as to what to write. Yes, I will share my workouts, that is a common thread in my posts. As for where I will go with... Continue Reading →


The body's ability to adapt and mend is an amazing thing to behold. Eight days ago I ran a marathon, a week ago I was struggling to walk down hill, two days ago I swam 1,000 meters and was ready to finish, and today I went to spin class for an hour covering 20 miles... Continue Reading →

If I Stand

My workout this morning to welcome November was a swim. Thursdays are my active recovery days, so I wanted to make the best of my only workout today. I swam the 3,000 meter workout that I only was able to get two thirds through on Saturday. A nice endurance swim with a main set of... Continue Reading →


"Location. Location. Location." A frequently used phrase that most often refers to real estate. Lately it has meant far more to me. Being at the right place at the right time.
