Nutrition Video!!!

I am sure everyone could learn a bit more about racing nutrition.... Let me know if you have any questions, comments or concerns :)

Noodles has a name....

And an owner. First off, I want to tell everyone how great it felt to read so many nice replies about Noodles. Thank you for being so kind and warm about my little rescue dog. In a good but bad way I have some news to bring to your attention. After a full day of loving Noodles, I finally came to terms with this little doggy and I had to call him my own. I was worried about getting too attached to him and then having to give him to his real owner (if there was one) but with Karel just loving Noodles to death, it wasn't hard for me to fall in love with him as well. On tues morning, after calling everywhere possible to locate this dog's owner, I convinced myself that this dog was meant to be with me. After visiting Karel at work on Tuesday (with noodles) I went home and googled some animal clinic's in our area. It took me a good 15 min to find a clinic that would be perfect for noodles and I finally picked one. I called the clinic and told them I was the proud owner of a littl

So much to blog about!

Since I have so much to blog about I thought I would give myself a day to sum up all the emotions that Karel and I have experienced over the past two days. All is good in our house now but I have so much to talk about. So, I thought I'd post some Kona pics from last year, seeing that Kona is this weekend. After finishing Kona (which was a dream come true for me) I am blessed to have experienced one of the most amazing triathlon experiences and I'm just so happy to be alive. It is amazing for us all to be able to do what we love to matter the distance or the race. Also, we should never take for granted the experiences we encounter, the memories we create and the important people in our lives. Enjoy the pics and be sure to check out the blog tomorrow!

Another Animal Saved

I believe that I was put on this earth for a reason. Although it gets to me at times when I find myself crying after I see a grasshopper get hit by bike tires, I just can't help but think that I am suppose to save all animals, bugs, insects and any critter that moves. Karel is use to it by now so when I cry over some 4-legged "friend" he knows to just give me a hug and try to comfort me the best he can. I guess I am a bit sensitive in that area but I can't change the way that I feel. I think we all have our breaking points and well, animals are mine. I must say that I do not force people to be a vegetarian and I do not insist that people give up meat. This is just how I live my life and as long as people respect animals when they are around me then I can associate with anyone....if anything, my favorite restaurant is Outback and I would never turn down a sweet potato and bread just because they serve meat. On sunday morning after my 60 mile solo bike ride (which was
