Planning…why am I so stressed!?!?

I am sitting here waiting for the tennis team I am working with today to finish up practice (they are outside today!) so I can finish up and head home. While I am waiting I am catching up, doing paperwork, a little online shopping, and making a plan for 2018. This is not the entire […]

Next Up: Race Day

I race pretty regularly. Or lets say I “participate” in races regularly. It has been awhile since I have “raced”. Tomorrow (Sunday) is Pleasant Prairie Triathlon. I will be racing the International distance. Am I ready? Well….good question. Not really, but I will be fine. Am I racing? Yeah, I think so. May not be […]

I am 43 years old, and I am still in the process of becoming the woman I am meant to be. Some find it quickly, many more struggle […]
