    Active Recovery

    It’s hard to believe; sometimes the best thing you can do for those super sore muscles is to workout. We call it “active recovery.” You know how it is — You worked out really hard and your legs hurt, all you can bear to do is to lay on the couch because it hurts to even get…

    Working Out in the Rain

    Really? You’re gonna make me workout in the rain?! George Hincapie said: “Enduring those cold and rainy training days, are the days that get you to your goal.” I love George Hincapie! If you don’t know who George is, Google him. My clients like to ask, “What if it rains? Will we still workout?” My…

    Do Not Look Up!

    I’m gonna be honest. It makes me sad when people tell me they won’t go on a certain run/ride or enter an event because it’s too “hilly.” I hear way too often, “I hate hills!” I can’t begin to explain what goes on in my head when I hear those words. So, before my brain…

    Lanterne Rouge

    It’s not whether you win or lose, it’s how you play the game, right? Well, we don’t always feel that way, but it’s true. When I was racing bikes I heard one of my teammate’s husband say to her as we were leaving for a race, “Don’t come home if you don’t win.” He’s now…

    Power to the She in Me

    Back in October I received a message suggesting that I apply for a local athletic wear sponsorship program. The message mentioned that… “This would be perfect for you. Every year we have one sponsored athlete who inspires our business and our customers. As a Sponsored Athlete, you would be our store’s spokesperson, the person who…
