Tri In The Buff 2021 Race Recap!

Surprise! I raced my first in-person triathlon of the year, competing in the always amazing Tri In The Buff. I raced this a few years ago with my friend Karstin, and decided two weeks before race start to sign up! Training for this sprint triathlon was a bit more laid back than typical for a [...]

Here We Go Again: Hyannis Triathlon 2

It typically starts with either a google chat message or text, often with a link to a website like New England Triathlon. This was the case back in January when my brother texted our thread that a September triathlon out on the cape was on the table. See exhibit A, B and C. Not only [...]

Exploring the Cape Cod Rail Trail

Taking advantage of optimal weather while we were out on Cape Cod, Ellie and I set out to conquer the Cape Cod Rail Trail this past week. The rail trail is probably the single greatest feature of Cape Cod—aside from the miles of beautiful sandy beaches, of course. Nearly uninterrupted, this well-maintained paved path [...]

Gelfoss, Þingvellir, a tomato farm, rye bread baked by a geothermal lake . . . holy cow we did a lot in a few days! On day two of our trip, we woke up bright and early, threw on our yoga and thermal clothing, and headed to Þingvellir National Park for the highly anticipated snorkeling [...]

Iceland Adventure Day 1: Flying In, Battling Wind and Snow, and the Blue Lagoon!

And we're back! Sorry for the radio silence last week, but it was for a good reason! We were on vacation in Iceland! I most definitely don't have the forethought to write posts ahead of time and schedule them, so . . . sorry about that! On Monday, we arrived bright and early at the [...]
