As you may know, I am a long-time Oakley Sunglass wearer. Karel introduced me to Oakley the minute we met..okay, maybe a few days later, and I was hooked. Having a chance to be an Oakley ambassador has been absolutely amazing as I have had so many opportunities to learn about the sunglasses and the importance of quality in the Oakley line of glasses and gear. I had one p

Couscous...I've missed you!

First off, is it possible to have too many pics of Campy sleeping. This ranks high with the dozens of other pics that I have of Campy sleeping....he just makes my heart melt with happiness. Karel says that I have too many pics of campy sleeping...I say, not enough! Secondly, how amazing is this quote? "Welcome every morning with a smile. Look on the new day as another special gift from your Creator, another golden opportunity to complete what you were unable to finish yesterday. Be a self-starter.

You were not born to fail.” -Og Mandino Today was one of those rushed dinner days. Despite working at home, I had several wonderful phone calls with my Trimarni nutrition athletes (glad to see athletes dedicating energy to daily and sport nutrition, just like they do with their training/f

Delray twilight Festival - Pro crit recap

Many people think they want things, but they don't really have the strength, the discipline. They are weak. I believe that you get what you want if you want it badly enough. ~Sophia Loren I have shared many exciting experiences with Karel in the past 6 years since we met on a group ride, after being "set up" by some friends.

Karel has crossed a few running finishing lines in remarkable times (1:29 for his only half marathon this November) but his fire burns for cycling..and I love that. It was tough to miss the Gate River run as a local, BIG race here in Jacksonville but it was a no brainer to go join Karel in Delray beach after hearing that this race was part of the USA Crit series..and it was a twilight criterium.
