Monday Musings: And just like that, it's over..

Hello!

This time next week I will be writing from my living room couch back in Toronto. We are in our last few days of our time down south and I feel like I only scratched the surface of all the things I wanted to see and do. 8 weeks seems like a long time but in the grand scheme of things, it isn't really. Throw in a week of training camp + a week with a guest for said training camp and time flies...

Monday Musings: A Magical Week

Happy Monday!

The dust has settled and the house is quiet once again.  This past week was a big one!  We hosted some elite triathletes for the weekend, I went to Disney for the first time and I celebrated another trip around the sun.

Last December, one of our coaches here, Sarah McClarty, posted in the Clermont Triathletes FB group that another USAT coach was looking for a home stay for 3 athletes...

Monday Musings: Goodbye Summer, Hello Race Week!

September. Here we are. Summer flew by and despite the less than stellar weather, I have to say, it was a good one. I felt I had a really good balance of fun and work. Yes, there was some stressing about getting some training done but for the most part, I managed to get things done. Training never felt like a grind. These last couple of weeks, I did kinda wish I was done racing but that was just...

Monday Musings: Short and Sweet

Have you ever gone on a trip that seemed to be longer than it was but also went by too fast? I know that sounds weird but I can't think of any other way to explain this past "long weekend". I went to Lake Placid and spent 5 days with 12 other likeminded women that I had never met before. In fact most of the women there didn't know each other. Groups like that can go two ways, either everyone gets...

Monday Musings: Adventure is calling!

I hope everyone had an awesome weekend. It was a big race weekend here in the GTA with the Goodlife Marathon and the Mississauga Marathon taking place yesterday. The weather didn't look awesome but it turned out to be some pretty darn good racing conditions. Cold, but good. I had athletes racing in both races. Everyone had good races, with one of my athletes completing her first marathon! (YAY...

Monday Musings: Marathon Monday

It's not just any Monday, it's BOSTON MARATHON MONDAY! My Social Media feeds have been all Boston all the time since Friday and I've loved every minute of it. I know what the excitement and anticipation feels like and it's so awesome to see it through other people's eyes. It's also Easter Monday so to those of you that have the day off, enjoy! Speaking of which, I hope everyone had a wonderful...
