About Me

Hello and welcome to my little corner of the blogging world!

I am a 32 year old triathlete, runner, wife,mom and social worker living in upstate New York.
Eleven years ago, I was 40 pounds overweight.
Ten years ago, I couldn't run a mile or ride a bike without toppling over. (True story-just ask my husband).
Seven years ago, I ran my first marathon (the infamous Rochester '08, where they called the race due to heat).
In 2010, I completed Ironman Lake Placid with the biggest smile on my face.  Since then, I've done another Ironman, a few marathons, a double marathon, two ultras, and countless other running races and triathlons.

If I can do it, anyone can!  Join me in my quest to live an active lifestyle, compete in triathlons from sprint to Ironman distance, and ultimately, to work toward a life goal:  to run a marathon in every state!
With my passion for sports, I continually strive to seek a healthy balance between being competitive, enjoying life, being a good wife, daughter, family member and friend....along with a demanding job in the non profit sector (and keeping up with all my hobbies and putting food on the table without going broke or crazy!)
So let's get cooking!  And running!  And biking!  And swimming!  Well, you get the picture :-)
