All Things Tri #MondayBlogs

I did it! I finished my Olympic distance triathlon yesterday. 1 mile swim, 24.8 mile bike ride, and 6.2 mile run. I have to admit, that bike ride was almost tougher than I am. Haha. So glad I did it, and did not stop all the way through. This also reaffirmed that I am absolutely, … Continue reading All Things Tri #MondayBlogs

My Own New Year #MondayBlogs

41. Next year, that number will at least be a funnier one, and the cosmic answer from The Hitchhiker’s Guide. But, it’s time for the new year of life routine. This year, there are a few things I would like to do. 1. Write creatively one hour each day 2. More competitions (10k or tri … Continue reading My Own New Year #MondayBlogs

Friday Philosophy ~ Goals

Goals: a necessity, and a puzzle. To really know where we are going, we do need a destination. But if the destination is so far away we can't even imagine we see it while we squint with one eye covered, it's too easy to become discouraged. Mini-goals can be a valuable stepping-stone on the way … Continue reading Friday Philosophy ~ Goals

Implementation, What a B****! #MondayBlogs

It's that time of year again, folks: the "quick, let's make a resolution because it's almost a new year!" time of year. Somewhere I once read that the best business to own would be a gym that is a full-fledged gym for the first two weeks of January, and then a bar (or pastry shop!) … Continue reading Implementation, What a B****! #MondayBlogs


We all have to be kind to ourselves: forgive ourselves, love ourselves, nourish and nurture ourselves. Without doing these things, there's really not much of us left for everyone else. But how do we bring these aspects into our professional lives? Is it even possible to do that? Yes. But first, you must learn to … Continue reading Flexibility…#MondayBlogs


There are days, and then there are DAYS! I seem to be suffering from an invisibility problem this past week. Believe it or not, this makes me think of when my children were babies and still breastfeeding. Instead of being the giver of nutrition, I was also the resident pacifier. I swore that nothing but … Continue reading Invisibility…#MondayBlogs

The Year of the Horse…#MondayBlogs

Those of you who keep up with Chinese astrology are thinking I'm way off right now. Yes, it's the Year of the Monkey. Except for here. At our house. Here, it's the Year of the Horse. Specifically, the Work Horse. No pale horse with death astride, no one trick pony: a sturdy, quarter horse of … Continue reading The Year of the Horse…#MondayBlogs


I despise New Year's Resolutions. Really, you can make a new resolution at any moment. I'm a huge fan of Mondays: resolve to start something new, or renew your discipline. Pick any Monday. Go for it. However, with my Halloween birthday and then the holidays, I do a sort of two part annual "taking stock … Continue reading Semantics…#MondayBlogs

Writer Wednesday…Jason Selk

Okay, it's not my usual review, I admit it. I read "10 Minute Toughness: The Mental Training Program For Winning Before the Game Begins." I'm not going to give an in-depth analysis this time. I'm going to explain it a bit differently: I find running on the treadmill BORING. I do. I come up with … Continue reading Writer Wednesday…Jason Selk
