Ironman Diary 7.5.13

It’s been a rough couple of weeks. I woke up one morning (about 2 weeks ago) unable to move…My neck and entire left trapezius muscle was one big knotted cramp. I was in so much pain that I actually had my husband come home from work to take me to get it looked at. Once…

Ironman Diary 6.16.13

My legs were still a little sore today after yesterday’s hilly boot run — but I bit the hair of the dog and went for a group ride with some friends. We did 33.7 miles on the Natchez Trace. The Trace is beautiful! We rode straight out to a designated point where we meet up…

Fears

Another One Bites the Dust

So… It’s diary entry time again. On Saturday I conquered another fear… (YEAH!!!) Fear of what?  Riding my bike in traffic! I haven’t been on my bike in five months… Five months!!! That’s how long it’s been since I got hit side-on by a SUV during my half-iron distance race. All winter I kept using…

Bataan

March It Out

Have you ever heard of the Bataan Death March? If you answered no, you’re not alone. It’s an obscure part of history that took place in 1942. I say obscure because it seems to have been all but erased from history. I don’t remember ever reading or hearing anything about Bataan in lower school or…
