It's never too late to be what you might have been. --George Eliot

Athena is the Goddess of wisdom and war. In 2005, I declared war on my own bad tendencies: sloth, being fat, compacency, and being too old for adventure. This is the story of how I went from being someone who never stood when she could sit, to being an ultrarunner, marathoner, and triathlete. Along the way I've cried, laughed, fallen, gotten up, lost, won, hallucinated, been dehydrated, DNF'ed, and been DFL.
I also swear. Alot.

New from Mattel, it's PMS Barbie (R)


I feel heavy.

I feel slow.

I feel tired.

I feel panicky - not ready for the sprint tri I have this weekend, or the marathon 1 week after that, or the half iron 2 weeks after THAT.

I feel bored.


I feel unmotivated.

I feel hungry--for all the wrong foods.

bleh.

  5. THAT is funny (PMS Barbie, that is). I'm out of town and not keeping up. Which Sprint are you doing? The hard thing about Sprints is that they make you stretch your limits--but the good thing about Sprints is that they wake up muscles and tweak your body to a new and better place. Truly.
    You've done all this before. Trust in yourself.

  6. Just keep doing what you are doing and the whole menopause thing will be done before you know it!

    Also - a 70.3 2 weeks after a marathon? Whoa! You are my hero.

  8. I know this is a older post and you have already rocked out the sprint and have the hardware to prove it, but ...
