Win an Iron Girl Sprint Triathlon Race Entry!


Every Mom to Iron Mom’s Coach Robin and I are partnering up with the fabulous people at Iron Girl to give away a free race entry to a Sprint Triathlon! A Sprint is much less scary than a full triathlon, just so you know. We’ll be doing a half mile swim, a 22 mile bike […]

The FedEx Guy and My Triathlon Training Gear: does this wetsuit make me look fat?


The FedEx man knocked on my door while I was in the bathtub. The dogs went nuts. I didn’t know who it was, but I hadn’t heard from my mom in several days, so I had a hunch it might be her, stopping by, like she does sometimes. I grabbed a towel, and went to […]

Run, Bike, and Swim? How to train for a Sprint Triathlon


When Sarah over at IronGirl called me to ask if I’d be interested in a sponsorship to their Portland, OR Sprint Triathlon in June, I laughed. My running coach, Robin, over at Every Mom to Iron Mom has been telling me it’s time for me to do a Sprint, but I keep whining about not […]

Let’s go bowling!


I went bowling today. I am terrible. Mostly gutter balls, but I got lucky once, and got a STRIKE so now I want to go again. We should start a bowling club! Anyone can join, just take pictures and share them with us. And tell us what your bowling name is. I think I’ll be […]

Kick Boxing with Hilary Swank and Black Eyed Peas: My Boom Boom Pow Moment


I went to Robin’s kick boxing class again tonight. I taped up my bloody knuckles, put on some gloves, and hit the bag with some left hooks, right hooks, jabs and pivot kicks. And I learned some super duper fancy footwork, to boot. Okay, I used a Band Aid and they were just little scabs […]

How to be a Kickboxer: a Wimp’s Guide to Toughness Part 1


Get Fit. Burn fat. Get lean. Learn Self-Defense. These are the things Robin at Every Mom to Iron Mom promised me from my first Kickboxing class last night. I was expecting the fitness benefits, I was not expecting how much I’d enjoy the Self-Defense part. It feels good to land a punch on a real bag. […]

Family Fitness Fun: We’re Going to the Y-M-C-A!


I signed up the whole family for a YMCA membership the other day. Call it a preemptive post- Halloween fallout maneuver, if you must. I call it a practical rally for physical and mental sanity. The gray rain is starting to get me down already, and despite our best efforts, our family tends to sit around […]

Chubby Mommy Runner Joins University of Oregon’s Track Team


Okay, so maybe I’m not officially on the team, and maybe I just saw them in the parking lot up at Hendrick’s Park in Eugene after my walk, and, I admit I can’t run quite as fast as any of them (since we all know U 0f O has one of the best track programs […]
